WATCH: Former UNC star Mitchell Trubisky tosses first NFL touchdown pass

The Mitchell Trubisky era began on Monday Night Football for the Chicago Bears in Week 5 and while it didn’t result in a victory over the division rival Minnesota Vikings, the former North Carolina quarterback injected some life into the offense.

The second pick in the 2017 NFL Draft supplanted Mike Glennon as the starter in the Bears’ fifth game of the season and completed 12-of-25 passes with a touchdown and interception.

Here’s video of Trubisky’s first NFL touchdown, a 20-yard pass that made its way to Zach Miller despite being deflected.

Trubisky flashed his athleticism and mobility by rolling out after feeling the rush.

The Bears ended up losing 20-17 to the Vikings but Trubisky showed promising signs to the home crowd that he wasn’t afraid of the moment under the bright lights and national television spotlight.
