Now that was more like the Justin Fields Bears fans were hoping to see.
Last Sunday, facing the 49ers, Fields looked the part of the dynamic, dual-threat quarterback Chicago drafted 11th overall this year. Though he still threw an interception, he connected on 19-of-27 passes for 175 yards with a touchdown, and rushed for a career-best 103 yards on 10 carries with another touchdown.
He’ll face a tough challenge on “Monday Night Football,” however as he faces the Steelers in prime time, a week after perhaps Pittsburgh’s biggest win of the season.
Fresh off a bye week, Pittsburgh held the Browns to just 10 points for its third straight win. The Steelers outgained Cleveland 370-306 in total yards.
It was also the third straight week for Ben Roethlisberger without an interception. After throwing four through his first four games, he now has zero interceptions and four touchdown passes in his most recent three games as he’s shown signs of improved play as of late.
