Justin Fields explains how 'different element' of Chicago Bears offense led to big game on MNF
Justin Fields had one of his best outings of the season on Monday Night Football in a blowout win over the New England Patriots. One of the keys to that game was Fields’ work as a rusher in the Chicago Bears offense.
At the end of the game, Fields finished with 14 carries for a team-high 82 yards and a touchdown. Combined with his 13-for-21 effort as a passer and 179 yards, Fields produced 261 yards of offense and 2 touchdowns.
After the game, Fields called the offense “more complex.”
“Yeah. I thought they were good,” Fields said at his postgame press conference per Josh Alper with Pro Football Talk. “I thought it brought a whole different element to our offense. I think we executed that well. And there were definitely some explosive plays in the design runs for sure.”

Moving forward, Fileds undoubtedly still needs to work on his efficiency as a passer in order to stick and develop as the starting quarterback in Chicago. However, with 80+ rushing yards in back-to-back games, it sure looks like the Bears are finding ways to maximize Fields’ full skillset this season.
