Bears coach Matt Nagy decided to rest his starters for the next-to-last preseason game rather than use it as the customary regular-season tuneup.And the backups proved that they're also ready for the regular season. Backup quarterback Chase Daniel directed touchdown drives on the first three possessions and the Bears defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 27-20 on Saturday."It's a confidence builder , for sure," Daniel said.The Bears played in the Hall of Fame Game and have been practicing since July 20, and Nagy liked what he'd seen in practices.So he decided Friday to keep starters out of what normally would be a dress rehearsal for the regular-season opener at Green Bay on Sept. 9."This was, for me, more of just knowing the pulse of our team," Nagy said. "I know this team better than anybody right now."Daniel replaced Mitchell Trubisky against the Chiefs, the team Nagy last year served as offensive coordinator. Nagy didn't think Trubisky, who is in his second year as a starter, would have benefited greatly after about 2,000 preseason and training camp snaps."We've had some grueling practices against Denver, some live reps in our past couple preseason games," Nagy said.Playing against Chiefs defensive starters and then the backups, Daniel led the Bears to a 24-10 halftime lead.Daniel, a Chiefs backup quarterback from 2013-15, finished 15 of 18 for 198 yards and two touchdowns. The first two Bears touchdown drives came against Kansas City's starting defense Bryce Callahan Jersey , minus injured safety Eric Berry and four other injured players."I felt like I was seeing it pretty good out there today," Daniel said.Wide-open receiver Kevin White caught Daniel's 29-yard TD pass in the first quarter to break a 7-7 tie, and Daniel then found Javon Wims for a 7-yard TD pass in the back corner of the end zone and a 21-10 lead.Benny Cunningham ran in from 13 yards for Chicago's first TD and Cody Parkey added a 48-yard field goal just before halftime.Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes II and the starting offense played into the third quarter against the backup Bears defense, and showed inconsistency.Mahomes flipped a short pass to the right side and Kareem Hunt turned it into a 19-yard TD for a 7-7 tie. Then he led a 49-yard drive ending in Harrison Butker's second-quarter 47-yard field goal.Mahomes didn't produce a big play on Saturday, and finished 18 of 24 for 196 yards. He left the game with the Chiefs down 24-10 in the third quarter."For me, I thought today was a good day as far as taking what was there and at the same time attacking the defense," Mahomes said.The Chiefs had eight penalties for 85 yards and a third-quarter drive ended at the Chicago 5-yard line."We can learn from this offensively," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "You're in the red zone you have to put points on the board. You can't have penalties. We had way too many penalties. Special teams, offense and defense, and tackling we have to make sure we work on that."Again, that's what the preseason is for."A FIRST TDBears wide receiver Kevin White's 29-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter was the first touchdown he has scored since coming into the NFL as the seventh pick in the 2015 draft. White missed 2015 and much of 2016 with leg injuries, and played one game last year before suffering a shoulder injury. He is vying for a roster spot in a crowded wide receiver competition and has Nagy's eye."I root for underdogs, I love underdogs," Nagy said. "And so when you have an underdog that fights his tail off to improve and when people don't believe in him and he proves the people who do believe in him right, then there's nothing better to me."HOMECOMINGNagy and his mentor Authentic Charles Leno Jersey , Reid, shared a hug and a few moments after the game.Nagy also had a long talk after the game with Mahomes, who started a game for the Chiefs last year as a rookie."I told him good luck," Mahomes said. "He was someone that I really got to know last year and really built a great relationship with him. I'm excited for him and his future with Chicago."ROUGH STUFFChiefs linebacker Tanoh Kpassagnon was flagged for roughing Daniel in the second quarter, even though Daniel was tackled with the ball still in his hand. Daniel said it was because Kpassagnon drove him into the ground with the full force of his body."I got crushed," Daniel said. "I'm glad I was wearing full pads out there."Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers last year suffered a broken collarbone on a similar hit.NATIONAL ANTHEMThere were no protests during the anthem.INJURIESBears wide receiver Marlon Brown left in the second quarter with a possible concussion and did not return. ... Bears reserve tackle Bradley Sowell was assisted from the field in the fourth quarter with a leg injury.NEXT UPChiefs: Close the preseason Thursday by hosting the Green Bay Packers.Bears: Close the preseason Thursday by hosting the Buffalo Bills. Mitchell Trubiksy may have only been sacked twice on Sunday against the New England Patriots, but I thought the Chicago Bears pass protection was sketchy all afternoon. This was partly due to how frequently the Patriots blitzed. According to Pro Football Focus, they blitzed Trubisky on 21 of his 58 total dropbacks, and the blitz harassed him into completing just 5 of 20 passes for 36 yards (and a TD) in those situations. Part of this was some good coverage by New England’s secondary, but moving forward this is an area that Trubisky and head coach Matt Nagy needs to improve on. Part of slowing down a pass rush and beating the blitz is to run the ball better. Getting Jordan Howard more involved is a must in my opinion. Right now, defenses assume when he’s in on passing situations that he’s blocking. A screen or two a game will force defenses to respect him as a threat.

He has to be ready to move laterally enough to cut off the edge and to stop an inside move. It’s his job to keep his body between his quarterback and the defensive player. When a quarterback steps up in the pocket, offensive tackles often lose what ever leverage they had, making it impossible to sustain a block.Keep an eye on left tackle Charles Leno Jr. on this play. Leno does get walked back a bit too deep, but he stayed between his quarterback and defensive end Deatrich Wise Jr. He held him off long enough Youth Akiem Hicks Jersey , but when Trubisky stepped up, Wise reached out for the easy sack. I can’t blame Leno on this one. Trubisky stepped up, like he’s taught to do, when he felt some pressure to his left. I thought there was a small chance to hit tight end Trey Burton over the middle, but he had to wait for Burton to clear the linebacker, and if he didn’t decide to step up, it would have been a bang-bang throw.I’ll give this one to Sacks Happen.Sack 14 - Fourth Quarter 8:25 - Adrian ClaybornThis one is going to be on Leno, however. Adrian Clayborn was left on an island against Leno, and he simply beat him with speed and a nice quick swipe of Leno’s hands. Clayborn’s timing was perfect. As soon as Leno tried to deliver his punch, Clayborn chopped his hands down, then scooted around the edge. Missing a punch can can throw off a tackle’s balance, and that’s what appeared to happen to Leno.
