It hasn't been a streak of accuracy on a level with Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees or Tom Brady.

 

Nevertheless, Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has eliminated interceptions over his past three starts.

 

Whether Trubisky can continue making good decisions and throws in his first playoff game at Soldier Field against the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles could go a long way toward determining if the Bears' season continues.

 

Trubisky suffered through a difficult three-interception game in the Bears' 15-6 win over the Los Angeles Rams, when he returned from a two-game absence because of a shoulder injury.

 

After a third-quarter interception, Bears coach Matt Nagy went entirely to the ground game the rest of the way. Since then, Trubisky has become deadly accurate and clutch.

 

Trubisky went 63 of 83 for 644 yards with three touchdown passes and no interceptions for a passer rating of 109.7 in wins over the Packers, 49ers and Vikings.

 

The 24-10 win at Minnesota on Sunday featured some of Trubisky's best play on third down. He accounted for seven third-down conversions. And he did it against the NFL's best third-down defense.

 

S Eddie Jackson (ankle) and OLB Aaron Lynch (elbow) did not practice after missing the last two games. 

 

WRs Taylor Gabriel (ribs), Anthony Miller (shoulder) and Allen Robinson II (ribs) and G Kyle Long (ankle) all went through a full practice.
