Tampa Bay Buccaneers 10  Chicago Bears 48 Sunday 30 September 2018        at Soldier Field
No-one saw this performance coming.  Mitch Trubisky became the first QB to ever throw six touchdown passes against the Buccaneers and the 38-10 half-time score made the second half somewhat irrelevant.  Jameis Winston returned from his NFL suspension to play after the interval but was unable to do much outside of a touchdown pass to Cameron Brate early in the fourth quarter.
