Justin Fields breaks Chicago Bears franchise record with incredible run to keep TD drive alive
Justin Fields is a future star as he continues to play fantastic football despite his Chicago Bears struggling to gain any traction in the NFC. On 2nd & 27, the former Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback escaped another potential sack from the defense of the Philadelphia Eagles to account for an incredible 39-yard rushing play.
Fields very nearly scored, but was ruled out at the 9-yard line.
JUSTIN FIELDS. INCREDIBLE RUN.
