Bears QB Justin Fields has already developed a hatred for the Packers
It didn’t take long for Justin Fields to get a sense of the rivalry between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers.
Mic’d up during a practice, Fields was discussing his former teammate at Ohio State, Josh Myers. When the quarterback was asked if the former Buckeye center was drafted, Fields had a hilarious response.
“To the wrong team,” Fields said.
Myers was selected by the Packers in the second round of this year’s draft, going No. 62 overall. Fields, of course, was the first Ohio State player taken in the draft, going No. 11 to the Bears.

Division rivals, the Bears and Packers have had some heated meetings in the past. The two squads play twice each season, meaning Fields will see Myers a couple of times this fall.
This year, Chicago will host Green Bay on Oct. 17 and the two teams will meet again in Lambeau Field on Dec. 12.
