Fields’ NFL:

    Getty Bears head coach Matt Nagy walks the sidelines as his team takes on the Detroit Lions. You can very likely count current Northwestern Wildcats head coach Pat Fitzgerald out of the Matt Nagy sweepstakes. Fitzgerald is one coach who won’t be leading the Chicago Bears any time soon, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. “It has been well-known throughout the industry for years how high Bears ownership is on Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald, who numerous NFL teams have pursued in recent years,” La Canfora reported on November 28. “However, sources said that Fitzgerald, who recently signed a big extension to remain at the school he also played for, would not be interested in a jump to the Bears.” ALL the latest Bears news straight to your inbox!

    Getty Justin Fields What if the Chicago Bears hadn’t traded up to get Justin Fields? Would the New England Patriots have still drafted Mac Jones at No. 15? Would they have pulled off a smaller move to move up a couple spots to get Fields? We’ll probably never know, but on a recent episode of Heavy presents I’m Just Saying, we discussed the first-year signal callers in the NFL. As the conversation shifted to a brief evaluation of the five prominent rookie quarterbacks in the , I offered: If Justin Fields was playing in an offense that was catered to what he does best and not everything he doesn’t do well, I think he’d be having a much better season. I think Trevor Lawrence, if you put him on a team with more weapons and just an overall a better head coach, better overall staff, I think he’s having a better year. I don’t think anybody knows about what Trey Lance is doing, because Kyle Shanahan doesn’t really know what he’s doing. So I think that yes,...
    Getty The NFL admitted referee Tony Corrente and his crew had three glaring, critical errors go against the Bears on MNF. The NFL has admitted that the officiating crew in the Week 9 Monday Night Football matchup between the Chicago Bears and the Pittsburgh Steelers got it wrong multiple times — and in critical moments. According to a November 14 report by NFL insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero, the league has acknowledged that the officiating crew led by referee Tony Corrente made several glaring mistakes that when added up, could have made a difference in the outcome of the game. The Steelers won, 29-27, but not without a great deal of controversy — which was warranted, as it turns out. ALL the latest Bears news straight to your inbox!

    Chicago Bears fans finally received some validation for being upset with what appeared to be a handful of missed calls in Monday night’s loss to the Steelers.  A Hall of Fame cliche in sports is to blame the officials whenever something with your team goes wrong. It’s not often, but sometimes referees indeed deserve the blame that fans routinely place on their shoulders. Monday night’s debacle in Pittsburgh between the Bears and Steelers appears to be a prime example of that. Tony Corrente’s crew was dragged across Twitter in what many were calling one of the worst officiated games anyone had witnessed in a very long time. It sounds like the NFL’s officiating department agrees. According to Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero from NFL Network, a review of Monday night’s game revealed multiple missed calls by Tony Corrente’s crew. The infamous taunting call was not mentioned, but a slew of other critical errors — such as late hits on Justin Fields — that could have impacted the result of the game were called out. Per the report: But privately, members...
    CHICAGO (AP) — There is nothing more important for the future of the Chicago Bears than the development of quarterback Justin Fields. No one has to explain that to coach Matt Nagy. “When you go up and draft a quarterback as high as we did, I totally understand the significance in seeing growth with the future,” Nagy said. “You want to be able to see that.” The recent strides by Fields are one positive in a difficult stretch. The Bears (3-6) stumbled into their bye with four straight losses, and the heat on Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace in Chicago is intensifying again. A big chunk of the fans might be more concerned about the prized rookie’s growth than whether the team wins. But Nagy sees no reason why they can’t have it both ways. “We understand what our goal is as a team, right?” Nagy said. “And Justin’s a big part of that. And that’s winning, so that we can win and see growth with him.” Fields had his best game in a 29-27 loss at Pittsburgh...
    Matt Nagy, once again, is not doing Justin Fields or the Bears any favors against the Steelers and NFL Twitter was absolutely torching the head coach. It’s a tired record at this point, but Monday Night Football marked another Chicago Bears game with Justin Fields as the starting quarterback and another instance of head coach Matt Nagy making a mockery of offensive play-calling. Nagy was routinely putting Fields in terrible positions throughout the first half against one of the NFL‘s better defenses in the Steelers. The results were less than stellar with plays getting blown up before they started, rushed throws leading to turnovers, and terrible protections getting Fields lit up. Suffice it to say it was a tough sight not just for Bears fans but also for NFL fans in general who want to see a young quarterback thrive.Matt Nagy got torched by NFL Twitter for wasting Justin Fields against the Steelers.There was no shortage of scathing reviews for Nagy in his job against the Steelers in primetime: Bears fans watching another Matt Nagy offensive masterpiece pic.twitter.com/Ce0qzhPDkz —...

"I'm not sure like one specific area. I'm hoping all the areas."I just feel way better just in terms of my confidence and my command of the huddle and of the offense and kind of telling those guys where to go."Fields turned a spinning, cutting fourth-and-1 scramble into a 22-yard touchdown and threw a pinpoint TD pass...
    Getty Justin Fields of the Chicago Bears has been compared to Josh Allen by an NFL scout. One of the primary knocks on Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields has been his tendency to sling many of the passes he throws with impressive velocity, making him more of a one-speed passer. But one NFL scout says that the way Fields is playing now reminds him of a current MVP candidate. Fields is coming off what many feel has been his best game so far. The 22-year-old QB had his third-best day yardage-wise, throwing for 175 yards through the air, but he had a career day on the ground, punctuated by a ridiculous 22-yard touchdown run on 4th and 1 in the 4th quarter: JUSTIN FIELDS ARE YOU SERIOUS?! #DaBears ????: #SFvsCHI on FOX????: NFL app pic.twitter.com/i8nVWJPukV — NFL (@NFL) October 31, 2021 Brad Biggs of The Chicago Tribune talked to multiple NFL scouts about Fields, and one made a very interesting comparison that bodes very well for the team.

    The clock clash: 19 states seeking to make daylight saving time year-round Whats behind the rise in gun ownership by people of color? From Provo, Utah to the Big Apple, Zach Wilson was (seemingly) always the guy. Zach Wilson's meteoric rise up NFL Draft boards in 2020 was one of the most intriguing storylines of the 2020 college season: While Trevor Lawrence was considered the de facto No. 1 prospect in the draft, four passers — Wilson, Ohio State's Justin Fields, North Dakota State's Trey Lance and Alabama's Mac Jones. As Joe Douglas decided to move on from Sam Darnold, he zeroed in on Wilson as the next great hope for Jets fans aching for a franchise passer since the days of Joe Willie Namath (and Ken O'Brien). Many were confused by the pick, citing Wilson's size and lack of competition as major red flags.  Here's why the Jets decided to make the BYU passer the highest-drafted quarterback in the school's history: Why did the Jets draft Zach Wilson? There were a more than a few reasons why the Jets decided...

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The running game already works for the Chicago Bears; they’re sixth in the NFL in rushing. Quarterback Justin Fields says he feels the passing game is close to doing the same to balance out their offense, and he needs to be right because his 3-4 team could be facing an entirely new challenge. Reportedly, the Bears are thinking of resting edge rusher Khalil Mack this week against the San Francisco 49ers and possibly longer so he can get over a nagging foot sprain. “The only thing I would say to that is we’re working through everything right now with Khalil, you know,” Bears coach Matt Nagy said via Zoom, while in quarantine after a positive COVID-19 test. “As everybody knows, he’s been battling through his foot injury the last several weeks. You’ve seen that with practice. “There’s been absolutely no decisions made. We’ll just kind of see where that all ends up.” It’s been the pass rush combined with the running game helping prop up the team while Fields navigates the hazards...

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers don't trust the numbers when it comes to the struggling Chicago offense.Coach Bruce Arians likes what he's seen of rookie Justin Fields, noting the young quarterback not only has a strong arm but also the ability to give opposing defenses fits when he decides to tuck the ball and run.Chicago might rank last in the NFL in total offense and be the only team in the league that averages more yards per game rushing than passing, but Arians says there are talented players around Fields who give the Bears (3-3) the potential to be more productive."I don't put any stock in stats," Arians said, looking ahead to Sunday when the defending Super Bowl champions (5-1) aim for a fourth consecutive victory and the best seven-game start in franchise history."You never know with a young quarterback what's going to happen. ...

    (CBS Chicago) — The Green Bay Packers have once again jumped out to an early lead in the NFC North race. Aaron Rodgers is in his usual elite form leading a balanced Packers attack. Most recently they disposed of the Bears, who are still finding their way with Justin Fields. Elsewhere in the division, Kirk Cousins is making plays and generally giving the Minnesota Vikings a chance to win. Jared Goff, like the rest of the Detroit Lions, are stuck in football purgatory. Rolling into Week 7, the Packers face another favorable matchup, when the Washington Football Team comes to town. The Lions look for that elusive first win against the Rams in Los Angeles.

    Getty Justin Fields has made Chris Simms admit he was wrong. Chris Simms didn’t have a ton of confidence in Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields coming out of the 2021 NFL draft. Simms, who played QB for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Denver Broncos over his seven years in the league, now serves as an analyst for NBC Sports, and he infamously had Fields ranked below the likes of Kellen Mond in his QB rankings comings out of the draft. “The arm is big time from a power standpoint, but from a consistency, a variety of throws, from needing space into the pocket and a lack of different angles throwing the football, yeah, those things need work in my opinion,” Simms said about Fields back in May, via NBC Sports. “Especially some of the mechanical issues. There are just too many throws that are missed that should be slam dunk NFL completions that I saw that were incomplete, or complete and the guy had to fall down, or the guy never even got a hand on...

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — What Justin Fields learns by battling teams with Hall of Fame-caliber quarterbacks takes on less significance than what he learns guiding the Bears offense against NFL defenses. Sometimes, though, they can be one and the same. For the second straight week, Fields squares off against an opponent with a quarterback destined for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Tom Brady, after the Bears rookie passer learned a valuable lesson facing Green Bay’s defense last week when Aaron Rodgers and the Packers pulled out a 24-14 win at Soldier Field. The lesson learned was NFL success stems from repeating good plays and not just producing one on occasion. “That’s one big difference I’m starting to find out is you’ve got to put drives together rather than just have a good play here, have a good play there,” Fields said. “I mean, because if you have a bad play in college, it’s easy to get that yardage you just lost the next play. Where in the NFL, it’s not as easy. “So just putting good...
    Former NFL quarterback and NBC Sports analyst Chris Simms is singing a different tune about Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields these days.

    Chicago Bears, Matt Nagy. Mandatory Credit: Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports After dismal performances in Week 6 (and perhaps coupled with previous shortcomings), these NFL head coaches are very much on the hot seat now.  Being an NFL head coach is a fickle business. It doesn’t take much for someone to go from a hero to a goat (and not the greatest of all time). Subsequently, it’s extremely easy for head coaches to move in the margins of security in their jobs to being on the hot seat. Thus, one week’s performance when an NFL head coach is operating in those margins can definitely turn up the heat on the seat in a hurry, especially depending on how bad of a performance a team delivered under a given sideline leader. Looking at some big losers of Week 6 in the NFL, these three head coaches should definitely be trying to figure out ways to get off the hot seat moving forward.3.

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Playing a bitter rival is nothing new for Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields. Facing the Green Bay Packers with first place on the line Sunday at Soldier Field in one of the NFL’s oldest rivalries has some similarities to the annual Michigan and Ohio State matchup, so Fields feels ready in this regard. “I mean, a rivalry game, it’s big,” Fields said. “I’ve been in the position before. I wouldn’t say it totally prepares me for this, but I have a pretty good idea of what a big rivalry game looks like.” Fields’ experience at Ohio State against Michigan comes from just one game his junior year, but it was a memorable one. He completed 14 of 25 for 302 yards and four touchdowns in a 56-27 Buckeyes’ win. The pandemic wiped out his chance to face Michigan again as a senior. His best memories of it extended beyond just winning. “Trash talk before the game, in warmups, fans talking trash and stuff like that, I always enjoyed that,” Fields said. “Hearing what they say,...
    LAS VEGAS -- The Las Vegas Raiders and head coach Jon Gruden are parting ways, a source tells ESPN.ESPN senior NFL writer Adam Schefter tweeted Monday evening, "Gruden no longer will be the Raiders' head coach," and added that owner Mark Davis was seen talking to Gruden earlier in the day at the Raider's facility.

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Justin Fields hyperextended his left leg and got the wind knocked out of him on a tackle in the second quarter.

    The Chicago Bears travel to take on the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 5 of the NFL season. In Week 5, the Las Vegas Raiders host the Chicago Bears in Allegiant Stadium. The Raiders enter the game 3-1 while the Bears come in at 2-2. This past week, Las Vegas suffered their first loss of the season on Monday Night Football, losing 28-14 to the Los Angeles Chargers. If it was a positive takeaway from the game it is that running back Josh Jacobs returned from injury and had 18 total touches for 57 yards. While not a big game, it is good to see Jacobs, who missed the two games prior, back on the field. His contribution will be necessary to help the Raiders continue on their hot start. Last week, the Bears were able to pick up rookie quarterback Justin Fields’ first victory as a starter in the NFL. Against the Detroit Lions, Fields completed 11-of-17 passes for 209 yards and one interception, leading the offense to 24 points. As a reward for his performance, Fields has officially been...

    When Derek Carr and Khalil Mack joined the Raiders together seven years ago, they vowed to do their best to turn the struggling franchise around. It all seemed to be on the right track when the two helped the Raiders end a 13-year playoff drought in 2016, but that was followed by a disappointing season the following year and then a trade that sent Mack packing to Chicago for a haul of draft picks. Now as Mack is set to visit Las Vegas on Sunday with the Bears (2-2), Carr still missed the player he calls “one of my best friends in the whole world” even as the Raiders (3-1) show signs of returning to contention. “I love him to death,” Carr said. “He knows that. It’s no secret, everyone knows how close we are. That’s not hidden any way. Not only is he one of the best players living in the world today. He’s one of the best people and when that trade happened it broke my heart.” It took the Raiders time to get over that deal as...

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy has changed his mind and made Justin Fields the Chicago Bears’ starting quarterback going forward. On Monday, Nagy had said Fields was still the backup and playing only because of Andy Dalton’s knee injury. But on Tuesday he told both quarterbacks of the change and announced it Wednesday. Dalton will return to practice this week after suffering a bone bruise to his left knee and will be the backup. “I told you the last couple of weeks we’ve some good conversations internally,” Nagy said. “It’s helped us in the last couple weeks. “Continuing that process this week it’s led to making the decision to move with Justin as the starter.” Fields experienced a dreadful start, going 6 of 20 for 68 yards and taking nine sacks in Week 3 against Cleveland.

Considering that, it’s not really a surprise that Gabriel, who also played for the Cleveland Browns and Atlanta Falcons, wouldn’t mind catching a few bombs courtesy of the Bears’ rookie signal-caller. Fields didn’t throw a touchdown in the Bears’ 24-14 Week 4 win over the Detroit Lions, but he threw enough impressive long balls to make Gabriel tweet this during the game: @ChicagoBears please let that man start the rest of year are we seeing these throws down field lawd made me want to put my cleats on — Taylor Gabriel (@TGdadon1) October 3, 2021 ALL the latest Bears news straight to your inbox!

    The best and worst fictional teachers 20 smart tips to make your résumé stand out Who would have thought it? Well, aside from, like, everyone. Justin Fields' second start was pretty, pretty good. Fields went 11-of-17 passing in the Bears' 24-14 win over the Lions on Sunday, which led to this question: What, exactly, was Chicago coach Matt Nagy waiting for? SN POWER RANKINGS: Big moves up and down after Week 4 games Fields looked much better prepared and was on the money with his throws Sunday. Maybe that was a product of play-calling. Maybe that was because he's really good. He showcased a strong, accurate arm and didn't look frazzled in the pocket, albeit against a weak and wallowing Lions defense. The rookie also used his mobility to escape the rush and reminded people why he was a top draft prospect. Fields' second crack at winning a start was much more fruitful than the drubbing he and the Bears received at the hands of the Cleveland Myles Garretts in Week 3, when Fields was sacked nine times. Now, Nagy, general manager Ryan...

(Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images) Chicago Bears fans had to love these three plays by rookie quarterback Justin Field during Sunday’s win over the Detroit Lions. The Chicago Bears faithful were not exactly thrilled seeing the rather lackluster offensive game plan by head coach Matt Nagy, and the fact that they saw rookie quarterback Justin Fields get sacked nine times by the Cleveland Browns in his first-ever start. As it turns out, all the Bears needed to do was to play the rival Detroit Lions to get back on track. In his second start, Fields shined with the Bears, leading them to a huge 24-14 win. The former Ohio State Buckeye completed 11-of-17 passes for 207 yards and one interception. While Fields did not account for any of Chicago’s touchdowns, he did gift Bears fans with...

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Coming off one of the worst performances by an offense the NFL has seen, things can only get better for the Chicago Bears this week. Right? The Bears look to pick themselves up when they host the winless Detroit Lions on Sunday in a matchup between teams coming off losses that were gut wrenching for different reasons. For Chicago (1-2), it was an epic failure on offense in a 26-6 debacle at Cleveland. The Bears ran 42 plays for a grand total of 47 yards, an effort that ranked among the worst the league has seen. It was the ninth-lowest total by an NFL team and the second worst for the charter franchise. For rookie Justin Fields, it was a nightmare. The No. 11 overall pick got sacked nine times for 67 yards and threw for just 68 on 6-for-20 passing in his first start, with Andy Dalton sidelined because of a bone bruise in his left knee. Fields also hurt his right thumb. Coach Matt Nagy said Dalton remains the No. 1 quarterback with...

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears will wait until game time to announce their starting quarterback for Sunday’s game against Detroit, choosing between Andy Dalton and rookie Justin Fields. Both quarterbacks are dealing with injuries, but Fields has been able to go through full practices the entire week while Dalton has been limited every day. Dalton is suffering from a bone bruise to his left knee while Fields wore a brace on his injured right hand all week in practice. Coach Matt Nagy said Friday he couldn’t rule out Dalton for Sunday at Soldier Field because his health has improved, and he is the team’s regular starter. Fields injured his right thumb during last weekend’s 26-6 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Dalton got hurt right before halftime in Week 2 against Cincinnati. The Bears (1-2) are last in the NFL in offense and passing. Their offense has scored three touchdowns and they haven’t had one since Dalton left the second game. Fields was 6 of 20 for 68 yards and was sacked nine times in the loss...
    Cynthia Erivo Calls New Children’s Book ‘a Dream Come True’ The Best and Worst Deals at Costco Three weeks isn’t long enough to permanently damage a young QB’s career. But there are consequences for a QB having too much patience with the team that drafted them. Matt Nagy appeared at his press conference refreshed on Wednesday, saying that the last 72 hours were full of honest and raw conversations between members of the coaching staff with one another, and members of the coaching staff with the players. “I’m getting tested to see where I’m at with this,” he said. Nagy struck the correct tone, appearing as humbled and mindful as any coach in the fourth week of a difficult season. Like other coaches, though, he remained expectedly secretive about what kind of changes will come from those revelatory 72 hours, whether he would remain the team’s play caller, whether the conversations lead to changes on the offensive line, or who will be the team’s starting quarterback on Sunday. As of now, Dalton remains the team’s first-string quarterback, with Fields...
    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Bears coach Matt Nagy was not ready to say who the starting quarterback will be when Chicago hosts the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Veteran Andy Dalton remains the No. 1 signal-caller, with rookie Justin Fields backing him up and Nick Foles in the third spot, Nagy said Wednesday. But as for who will start this week? Nagy said that “will be sorted out once we have a clearer picture” on the health of his top two quarterbacks. Both were expected to practice Wednesday in some capacity. Nagy would not say, either, if he will continue to call plays on offense. The Bears delivered one of the worst performances ever on that side of the ball by an NFL team in a 26-6 loss at Cleveland last week. They had just 47 yards, the ninth-lowest total in league history and the second lowest for the charter franchise. Fields, the No. 11 overall pick, got sacked nine times for 67 yards while throwing for just 68 in his first NFL start. He also injured his...
    NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – SEPTEMBER 26: Frank Reich the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts against the Tennessee Titans at Nissan Stadium on September 26, 2021 in Nashville, Tennessee. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images) Brilliance from Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore makes the case that he deserves a head coaching gig over at least four NFL coaches. Before the season, Ezekiel Elliott told reporters that Kellen Moore’s No. 1 goal this year is to become the No. 1 offense — and so far, the Cowboys are off to a pretty good start. A year of rehab healed quarterback Dak Prescott, who believes he’s playing the best football he’s ever played. It’s hard to argue otherwise when Prescott only had five incompletions on 26 passes, resulting in 238 yards and three touchdowns in a dominant 41-21 victory. Prescott isn’t the only offensive player to bounce back: Ezekiel Elliott finally bounced back into fantasy football relevance with 95 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns. While Prescott and Elliott deserve their massive contracts, it’s also a credit to Moore, the phenomenal coordinator who’s...
    The Chicago Bears played a game against the Cleveland Browns that they’d like to forget. Rookie quarterback Justin Fields was sacked nine times, and the Bears offense was held to only 47 yards and six first downs in a 26-6 loss on Sunday afternoon. The loss put the Bears at 1-2 for the season. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM On Monday, Bears head coach Matt Nagy met with reporters and said that he hasn’t decided who will be under center for Chicago in its Week 4 matchup against the Detroit Lions. Fields is currently dealing with a hand injury that he sustained on Sunday, and Andy Dalton — who was the starter heading into the season — suffered a knee injury last week. The only other option for the Bears is third-string quarterback and former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles.

    3 dead, over 50 injured in Amtrak train derailment Germany election results: SPD wins most seats in federal elections, preliminary official results show The Chicago Bears fell to the Cleveland Browns 26-6 on Sunday afternoon. © Jon Durr-USA TODAY Sports The Bears' offense was so bad on Sunday, even third-string QB Nick Foles was complaining about it. With the defeat, Chicago sits at 1-2 on the year – but that’s the least of the Bears' problems. Making his first career start, rookie quarterback Justin Fields struggled badly in place of an injured Andy Dalton. With Fields at the helm, the Bears mustered a mere 47 yards and six first downs on the day. Fields finished the game 6-of-20 for 68 yards. The Bears' most impressive accomplishment on Sunday was a pass-interference call that wiped out a pick and earned them 48 yards. Not great. And if that wasn’t bad enough, third-string quarterback Nick Foles was captured on camera bad-mouthing Fields amid his struggles.

    Jagged Little Pill Star Antonio Cipriano Exits Show After Producers Were Accused of Transphobia How Much Should I Save for Retirement? © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad The Browns’ defense completely shut down Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields today, to such an extent that the Bears had an ugly stat line not seen in the NFL in more than a decade. Chicago totaled one yard passing: Fields passed for 68 yards, but he lost 67 yards getting sacked. That was the fewest passing yards in any NFL game since 2009. In 2009, the Bengals had a game with zero passing yards, but that was a meaningless game at the end of the season when they pulled Carson Palmer early. The 2009 season also saw the Titans total -7 passing yards in a 59-0 loss to the Patriots. Fields will have better days ahead. He could hardly have a worse day. Bears finished with one passing yard, fewest in an NFL game since 2009 originally appeared on Pro Football Talk
    CLEVELAND (AP) — Myles Garrett recorded a franchise record 4 1/2 sacks on Justin Fields and Cleveland brought down Chicago’s rookie quarterback nine times — holding him to one net yard passing — in his first NFL start as the Browns thumped the Bears 26-6 on Sunday. Garrett had a field day against Fields, who was thrust into the lineup after veteran Andy Dalton injured his knee last week. The Bears (1-2) wanted to be patient and not play the No. 11 overall pick until he was ready. The Browns (2-1) didn’t cut him any breaks, and their defense, which had been criticized for its performances in the first two games, got it together at Fields’ expense and held Chicago to only 47 yards and six first downs. The former Ohio State star was under pressure from the start. He completed just 6 of 20 passes for 68 yards. The Bears’ biggest offensive play came on a pass interference that wiped out an interception and gained 48 yards. Jadeveon Clowney added two sacks for the Browns. Cleveland thoroughly dominated, outgaining...
    Watch Christopher Meloni Revel in Being the "Zaddy of the Moment" Surfside collapse: What really happened to the pets of Champlain Towers South? Will the rookie's development be stunted by throwing him out on the field behind an offensive line still trying to figure it out? We're going to find out if Matt Nagy was right. It’s always overwhelming, the moment when you get the thing you’ve been clamoring for all along. From the second Justin Fields was drafted (a decision from Bears general manager Ryan Pace that achieved near universal praise for its situational aggressiveness and acknowledgment that he could not survive with the quarterback room as constructed at the time), we imagined what Matt Nagy’s offense would look like piloted by an athletic quarterback with a deft passing touch and a temperament to handle high-pressure situations. We all rolled our eyes together when Nagy did what most coaches do, forcing Fields to win the job out of training camp. We all balled our fists and pounded the table when Nagy actually went through with his decision,...
