Nick Foles led the Bears on a game-winning drive and beat Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20- 19. Thursday nights' game was a rematch of Super Bowl LII quarterbacks, both whom are now playing for different teams. Tom Brady and the Bucs quickly took a 13-point lead after a 2-yard touchdown catch by Mike Evans. Bears QB Nick Foles struggled to find his rhythm, but found it towards the ends of the second half.

Foles led a 10-play, 75-yard drive that ended with a 3-yard David Montgomery touchdown - the Bears first rushing TD of the season. Foles, then, found tight end Jimmy Graham in the end zone for Chicago's second score and first lead of the game. Tom Brady and the Bucs offense got the ball back with a minute and change left on the clock but the veteran was unable to pull off his 4th quarter magic. It appeared Brady and the Buccaneers offense confusion on the last offensive sequence. Both teams head into week 6 with a long week of rest.
