Bears lean heavily to the run to protect rookie quarterback

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) Throwing 16 times a game runs contrary to popular methods for winning in the NFL, or getting a passer experience.

Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Tribusky doesn't care if his offense continues playing it safe - as long as it's in a victory.

"As a quarterback, you want to be throwing the ball, but as a competitor and leader of this team, you're going to do whatever it takes to win," Trubisky said. "And if it's running the ball, if it's passing the ball, whatever it is, that's what we're going to do."
