After losing their season-opener in Green Bay, the Chicago Bears (3-1) have won three straight games, including a 48-10 beatdown of Tampa Bay this past Sunday. The Bears are well on their way to their first winning season since 2012, when they went 10-6 under Lovie Smith.

Chicago is, well, confident.

“We’re No. 1,” Bears running back Tarik Cohen said on Reiter Than You. “That’s what we like to think. We’re going to come out every Sunday and play like we’re the best team in the NFL. We’re going to keep working until we can prove that.”

Mitchell Trubisky, who threw for seven touchdowns all of last season, had six against Tampa Bay. He finished 19-of-26 for 354 yards and ran three times for 53 yards, as Chicago led 38-3 at halftime and never looked back.

“He can be one of the greats because it’s all about his attitude,” Cohen said. “I feel like he never messes up on the same thing twice. He just has a hunger fo be better than he was. With that attitude, I feel like there’s no ceiling to where he could get.”

Cohen had a special game Sunday as well. He carried 13 times for 53 yards and caught seven balls for 121 yards and a score. He and Jordan Howard have become one of the best running back duos in the league.

“We can do wonders,” Cohen said. “Having a two-headed monster like myself and Jordan – him pounding the defense and me out-running those guys, it switches up. Defenses have to prepare for that and it’s just something to keep them off guard.”

The Bears, who have a bye this week, play the Dolphins (3-1) in Miami on Oct. 14. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. ET.
