Trubisky finished 22 for 31 with 316 yards passing, three touchdowns and one interception. He also ran for 47 yards on eight carries. Trubisky and Chicago will return home to face the New England Patriots at Soldier Field on Oct. 21 at 1 p.m.
Tight end Eric Ebron also had an impressive performance for the Indianapolis Colts. He hauled in four passes on seven targets for 71 yards and one touchdown in a matchup with the New York Jets.
Ebron was able to get involved in the passing game early. In the first minute of the game he hauled in his first reception for 15 yards. His touchdown reception was a 18-yard catch that cut the Jets' lead to 30-20 with 8:44 left in the third quarter.
The 42-34 loss to the Jets marks back-to-back games with at least 50 receiving yards or more for Ebron. He went for 105 yards and two touchdowns last week against the Patriots.
Linebacker Zach Brown had a busy day for the Washington Redskins in Sunday afternoon's game against the Carolina Panthers. Brown asserted himself in the game immediately, as he recorded two tackles on the Panthers' first drive.
In total, Brown finished with five solo tackles and one assisted. The Redskins hung on for a 23-17 win to tame the Panthers in Washington, improving to 3-2 on the season. Washington hosts its NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys next Sunday at 4:25 p.m.
Tre Boston and the Arizona Cardinals traveled to Minnesota to take on the Vikings in the cool October air on Sunday afternoon.
Boston stood out as a notable player in the Arizona secondary. He had two solo tackles and two assisted tackles in the game. Even more noteworthy was his interception on a pass intended for Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen with 14:25 left in the second quarter. This now gives Boston three interceptions this season.
Despite excellent moments from the Arizona defense, it could not pull out the win against Minnesota. Boston and the Cardinals will have a short week as they turn their attention to a home game against the Denver Broncos on Thursday night.
