Game Recaps

2019 Week 4 vs MIN (22 / 30 / 195 / 1 / 0 pass, 5 / 4 / 0 rush)

The Chicago Bears beat the Minnesota Vikings based on a strong defensive performance. Chicago lost starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky to an injury on his non-throwing shoulder. Chase Daniel replaced Trubisky and kept the offense on schedule and turned to Allen Robinson as a feature element in the passing game. David Montgomery dominated the running back touches but struggled to create yards in the running game.

2019 Week 5 vs OAK (22 / 30 / 231 / 2 / 2 pass, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)

Chase Daniel struggled in his first start of the season against the Raiders. Daniel was under pressure frequently and took four sacks on the day, including one for a loss of more than ten yards where he looked indecisive on the play. He threw two interceptions, including a bad throw across the middle and a game-ending throw down the field on a ball that looked like it was tipped. He managed to score twice with the benefit of good field position, both touchdown throws to Allen Robinson including a pinpoint fade in the end zone. Daniel helps Robinson's fantasy prospects more than he offers standalone value in any starts he makes in relief of Mitchell Trubisky. Trubisky is a possibility to return after a week six bye.

2019 Week 11 vs LAR (1 / 4 / 9 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Chase Daniel came in to replace Mitchell Trubisky late in the fourth quarter against the Rams on Sunday. Daniel was under pressure on the lone series he played and completed only one of his four passing attempts. The Bears face a Giants defense that has struggled this season, so Daniel will have viability if he replaces Mitchell Trubisky as Chicago's starters.

2018 Week 12 vs DET (27 / 37 / 230 / 2 / 0 pass, 4 / 4 / 0 rush)

The game plan was simple for the Bears this week and Chase Daniel. Simplify the game plan, give him one to two reads and then get rid of the ball. According to NFL Next Gen Stats, Daniel released the ball on an average of 2.55 seconds which would be the fastest average in the NFL this season. Daniel looked poised outside of a missed overthrow to Anthony Miller as he was willing to take the easiest routes which were short speed routes to Taylor Gabriel and Tarik Cohen and did throw a perfect deep pass to Allen Robinson for a 29-yard gain on his longest throw of the day.

2018 Week 13 vs NYG (26 / 39 / 285 / 1 / 2 pass, 4 / 4 / 0 rush)

This game was very similar to the Detroit game and what we can largely expect every time Chase Daniel is in the game. He's a limited quarterback who is going to get the ball out of his hands quickly which is exactly what they did this week. Daniel would look at Allen Robinson and if it did not look like Robinson would get open he would check it down to Tarik Cohen. This ultimately led to both of his interceptions as he quickly looked to check down and did not see Alec Ogletree both times which caused two interceptions for the Giants. Daniel did throw a passing touchdown to tight end Adam Shaheen on a beautifully executed play action play.

2014 Week 8 vs STL (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Daniel took over with 2:30 remaining and handed the ball off to Knile Davis 3 times.

2014 Week 15 vs OAK (0 / 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

Daniel came in for mop up duty and only threw one pass in the game. That one pass was a swing pass in the flats that was nearly intercepted by a defensive lineman that read the play from the start.

2014 Week 17 vs SD (16 / 27 / 157 / 0 / 0 pass, 3 / 16 / 0 rush)

Daniel was extremely efficient in the first half, completing his first nine attempts. In fact, he only had four incompletions in the first half and three of those were drops. A larger percentage of those passes were dinks and dunks but he also made a couple of nice throw downfield. He had a well timed throw on a deep in to Dwayne Bowe for 12 yards and hit Travis Kelce right between the numbers for a 14 yard gain on a deep cross. Daniel also did work with his legs, picking up seven yards and a first down on a read option on the first drive and scrambling for nine more later in the half. Daniel lost a touchdown when Dwayne Bowe fumbled the ball going into the end zone in the second quarter, but it was recovered by Travis Kelce for the score. Daniel also threw a beautiful deep out to Travis Kelce for a 24 yard gain in the two minute drill. Daniel was not near as effective in the second half. He didn't complete a pass and was sacked three times in the third quarter. He started the 4th with a 30 yard completion to DeAnthony Thomas down the right sideline, but even that ball was underthrown. With a 2 score lead in the 4th quarter the Chiefs largely kept the ball on the ground, limiting Daniel's second half attempts.

2013 Week 15 vs OAK (3 / 5 / 31 / 0 / 0 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

Daniel looked a little better in mop up duty than he did last week but still looks like a big drop off from Alex Smith. All three of Daniel's completions came to backs out of the backfield and his misfired on his two targets of receivers.

2013 Week 17 vs SD (21 / 30 / 200 / 1 / 0 pass, 7 / 59 / 0 rush)

It was an up and down day for Daniel, but all in all a solid performance for a career backup against a team with everything to play for. The first drive was a great illustration of Daniel's day. His first pass slipped through the hands of a Chargers linebacker who almost certainly would have returned it for a touchdown. His second throw was on a rope deep down field to A.J. Jenkins for a 48 yard gain. Daniel didn't look comfortable at all on his next three drives, but did pick up a touchdown pass on a wide receiver screen to Dexter McCluster from the two yard line. Daniel jumpstarted the Chiefs final drive of the first half with his legs. He picked up 38 yards on the ground, including a 29 yard scramble up the middle where he showed plus speed for a pocket quarterback. The running seemed to calm Daniel down and he made a really nice pass to McCluster on a cross with a linebacker in his face to move the team into the red zone. Daniel again struggled in the third quarter, completing only two passes for four yards and dropping his eyes early more than once. Daniel once again settled down enough to lead what should have been a game winning drive to end regulation. He did an excellent job looking off the linebacker to complete an 11 yard pass to Sean McGrath over the middle and threw a well-placed ball to Junior Hemingway for a 24 yard gain on a post corner. Daniel basically made one good throw in overtime on a well-timed slant to McCluster that the speedy receiver turned into a 28 yard gain. He struggled mightily under the pressure of the final three plays as he tried to get his team into field goal range. All told, Daniel made a few big league throws and gave the Chiefs a spark with his legs. His performance has to instill confidence that he could be a backup quarterback if called on again.

2012 Week 11 vs OAK (1 / 1 / 10 / 0 / 0 pass, 3 / 19 / 0 rush)

Daniel came on in mop up duty, but only threw the ball once for 10 yards. Daniel did pick up 19 yards on a boot, picking up the first down and allowing the offense to kneel the game away after the run.

2011 Week 7 vs IND (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Daniel demonstrated his skills handing the ball off to the talented stable of backs, but did not throw a pass when he came in grind out the final 15 minutes of the game.

2011 Week 15 vs MIN (0 / 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Daniel played only in mop up duty late in the blowout. He mostly handed the ball off to run out the clock, although he did play the final 11 minutes of the game. He threw one pass, but badly overthrew an open Marques Colston.

2010 Week 17 vs TB (2 / 3 / 16 / 0 / 0 pass, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)

Daniel came in late, once the Saints were locked into the fifth playoff slot and ran the offense efficiently to close out the game. His one mistake was on a flip back to Reggie Bush. The ball was a bit high and thrown a tad too hard and bounced off Bush's hands. Bush recovered but the saints lost six yards on the play.
