The 3-0 Chicago Bears are officially handing the reins to their offense to a new starting quarterback.

Nick Foles will take over for Mitchell Trubisky as the team's starter on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, coach Matt Nagy announced Monday.

Nagy confirmed that Foles would not merely be the starter on a trial basis.

“It’s not easy coming in cold like that,” Foles said. “But if you can approach it with a mindset of ‘Hey, one play at a time, you can’t get all those points back in one throw,’ that helps a lot.”

Trubisky, 26, now faces an uncertain future in Chicago. The Bears decided this spring not to exercise the fifth-year option for the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, putting him on track to become a free agent at the end of the year.

Trubisky said Sunday he was surprised to be pulled.

“It kind of happened out of nowhere,” Trubisky said. “I just accepted the news. I had Nick’s back like he’s had mine. The situation sucked, but it was just the flow of the game and how it happened and coach made the decision that he felt was best for the team.”

a group of football players on a field: Bills quarterback Josh Allen is the talk of the NFL again after Week 3. His team blew it, and he brought them back from the dead. Yes, it's a team game, but without Allen, the Bills are 2-1 right now.  But Allen wasn't picture perfect on the day. Maybe a questionable interception, yes, but it was a duck of a pass. Plus Allen did fumble away the ball in the second half, adding the the Rams' comeback efforts.  But we'll admit, a bit of a nitpick there, not perfect, but pretty damn close. Allen completed 73 percent of his pass and had 311 passing yards. That's three-straight games over 300 passing yards for him.
