Justin Fields need to do more for the Chicago Bears this week

Justin Fields has managed to manage the game just enough to win back-to-back games for the Chicago Bears after an embarrassing loss against the Cleveland Browns. This week’s challenge won’t be any easier for the rookie quarterback in his first career matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

While the Packers’ defense isn’t on par with that of the Cleveland Browns, it has been a thorn in the Bears’ quarterback’s side for many years. However, last week against the Bengals, the Packers allowed Ja’Marr Chase to go wild against them but relatively kept Joe Burrow in check.

Fields was unable to get the Bears back into the game against the Browns and hasn’t really needed to throw a ton in their last two wins, that might need to change this week. At Ohio State, Fields was one of the best passers in college football, fans are still waiting for him to break out in the NFL and these next few stretches of games will throw Fields directly in the fire.

If the Bears want to stay over .500 for the next five games, it will come down to how good Fields can play and lead the offense, especially with David Montgomery out for a majority of the stretch.
