1. Will Justin Fields get another chance to win the game late

This has been a talking point as of late, and something tells me that it will not go away again this week. Justin Fields had a chance to beat the Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions in back-to-back weeks, and the team lost both games. The same thing happened against Washington.

The team had chances to complete comebacks against the Cowboys and Vikings and lost both games. To start, it is impressive they have stayed in so many games. It is also giving Justin Fields and his supporting cast a lot of experience in these moments.

Still, while many will blame penalties, his teammates, and other factors, it is also true that Justin Fields is better in the first three quarters than he is in the fourth. That was true for weeks 1-6, and is true for weeks 7-10 as well.

As we discussed, this is a bad run defense and a line that does not create pressure. This defense somehow ranks worse than the Lions in these key metrics.

This is a good chance for Justin Fields to show what he learned over the past couple of games and win a game that some are doubting he can after last week’s loss. Based on the way Atlanta plays, it is hard to see this game being a blowout one way or the other. It is time to see what Fields can do.
