Chicago Bears Rookie MVP Justin Fields

Justin Fields more wins this award by default than by performance. Still, Fields played a much bigger role in the offense in week two due to Dalton’s injury.

Fields put some good and bad on tape

Overall, it was a mixed showing from Fields. There were some nice throws, and he was able to make plays with his feet. It’s clear that Fields brings things to the Bears offense that Dalton simply does not.

With that being said, we also saw some of the growing pains that come with being a 22-year-old quarterback in the NFL. Fields also had a fumble he was able to recover on his own and threw a bad interception late in the fourth quarter. He finished the game with six completions on 13 pass attempts for 60 yards and 31 yards rushing.

It is only a matter of time until it is Justin Fields offense 

Bears fans are losing patience, but it looks like we will see more of Fields in the weeks to come. Even if Dalton is good to go next week, it’s hard to imagine the Bears won’t make a conscious effort to get Fields into the game. It was far from his best game, but Fields getting real playing time was still a really good sign.
