Justin Fields is playing great football on the field and he is taking responsibility for the team off the field. Down 27-24 with 1:47 minutes left on the road versus the Atlanta Falcons in Week 11, Fields had a chance to have his offense drive down the field to potentially win the game. Fields threw a costly interception 2 plays after being injured.

After the game, Fields apologized to the entire team for the costly interception to secure the Falcons the 27-24 win. Chicago defensive coordinator Alan Williams responded that Fields shouldn’t have to apologize for his play to give Chicago a chance to win its fourth game of a tough 2022 season.

Fields completed 14-of-21 of his passes for 153 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception as well as rushing for 85 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries. The defense of Chicago allowed 280 total yards on only 53 plays for an average of 5.3 yards per play.

In the last 3 games for Chicago, Fields has completed 43-of-69 of his passes for 443 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions as well as rushing for 410 yards and 4 touchdowns on 46 carries.

In a week dominated by storylines of fellow 2021 NFL Draft class quarterback Zach Wilson not taking accountability for the New York Jets’ 10-3 road loss to the New England Patriots in Week 11, Fields takes full accountability like a real leader.
