Is it time for Mitch Trubisky in Chicago?

The Bears paid Mike Glennon a lot of money to shore things up at QB, but his résumé looks like that of a below-average starter or top-end backup. Among 37 QBs with at least 20 starts since 2013, Glennon ranks near the bottom in several key categories.

The Bears decline to provide any further updates on the health of ILB Nick Kwiatkoski (pectoral), running back Jordan Howard (shoulder) or guard Josh Sitton (ribs). All three players left Sunday's game vs. Tampa and did not return.

White Sox bring Tigers closer to their level

The White Sox know how it feels to lose a no-hit bid on the final out of the game, having suffered such an experience more than any other MLB team. By ending Matthew Boyd's hopes with two outs in the ninth on Sunday, Chicago moved Detroit into second place on that not-so-desirable list.

Teams in the dreaded 0-2 hole

The road to the playoffs has already gotten much tougher for the 49ers, Bears, Bengals, Browns, Chargers, Colts, Jets and Saints. Since the postseason field expanded to 12 in 1990, just 12 percent of teams to start 0-2 have made the playoffs.

The Cubs beat the Cardinals 4-3, completing their second straight sweep while reducing their magic number to win the division to 10. Jason Heyward drove in the winning run with an RBI base hit in the seventh inning while Wade Davis earned his 31st save, pitching on a 3rd consecutive day. Dexter Fowler hit a 3 run HR to tie the game at 3-3 but flied out to end the game. Heyward had 3 hits while Addison Russell had 3 walks and a hit and has reached base in every plate appearance since coming off the DL.

The Bears biggest worry is that their season is over. For the third consecutive year, the Bears have an 0-2 record going into Week 3. And the schedule doesn't get any easier. The Bears host the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers next Sunday, and then travel to Green Bay on a short week for Thursday night football. Chicago already had three starters on injured reserve going into Sunday, and three more starters were unable to finish the Bears' 29-7 loss to Tampa.

The Bears say they're sticking with QB Mike Glennon, but it's easy to argue that rookie Mitchell Trubisky gives Chicago the best shot to win.
