When the Chicago Bears take on the Baltimore Ravens it will be a duel between two of the more exciting quarterbacks in the NFL. Okay, Justin Fields is not quite there yet, but when Jackson comes into town, Fields will be able to put himself into a position to get into a shoot-out that does have fans thinking about these two in the same conversation moving forward.

At WynnBet, the Chicago Bears have a point total of 19.5. Here is why Justin Fields may hit that himself.

4. Justin Fields is progressing

If you have been reading, we had a nice bye week to look back at what Justin Fields has been able to do so far this season. He absolutely hit a low point against the Cleveland Browns, but overall has been trending in the right direction each week. He was up and down against the Bucs but responded with his best two games against the 49ers, and Steelers.

Playing a Pittsburgh defense with T.J. Watt and Cameron Heyward on the road on Monday Night Football and playing his best game is going to have residual effects. This is not Mitch Trubisky against a horrible Bucs defense.

His career in passing yards came against Pittsburgh and his career-high in rush yards came against the 49ers. If Fields keeps the rushing pace of his past four games, he will be one of the most prolific rookie rushers ever. Fields was getting better as a passer and the coaches were letting him loose as a rusher. Heading out of the bye week you should only see more progression from Fields as he looks back on his growth from Cleveland to Pittsburgh.
