However, the story of the contest came from the Steelers defense stepping up in key moments to grab a season-opening victory. Trubisky voiced that he needs to play with an aggressive mentality to provide the team with the best chance to win.

“When your defense is playing that well, and they’re getting turnovers, you just want to take care of the football, but we’ve got to have that killer mindset, that aggressive mentality to really take teams out of the game and just not allow them to keep it close,” Trubisky said via ESPN.

All that will place more pressure on Trubisky to limit his mistakes. Meanwhile he needs to enough plays with his arm and legs.
