5 Chicago Bears prime to bounce back vs. Lions
1. Justin Fields
This one should be obvious. It is not too bold to say that he will be better Sunday than against the Browns. It almost would be impossible for him to be worse. Still, we all knew a quarterback in his first start on the road is not easy. You have serious issues when you add Garrett against those tackles, Montgomery against a great run defense, and Robinson shut down by Ward.
Still, a lot of that comes down to Cleveland having far more talent than Chicago at these spots. Now, Chicago goes from far less to far more talent than Detroit. All of a sudden, things should come easier for Justin Fields.
The rush should be slower, the run game should work, and his receivers should be creating. With that in mind, Fields could not only improve but have a much better game. Considering it is his second start at home, and the defense is weak, the circumstances could not be any different than last week. If he fails this week, it is time to worry.
Until then, the expectation should be that Justin Fields will be fine against the Detroit Lions.
