The Chicago Bears are coming off a primetime loss to the Los Angeles Rams last Sunday, 34-14.

Backup QB Justin Fields was used as a gadget player in the Week 1 loss at the Rams. Field’s stat line was 2-2 for 10 yards and he rushed for 3 and a score.

Andy Dalton in the loss was 27-38 for a 71% completion rate, throwing for 206 yards, 0 touchdowns and 1 interception. Dalton was also sacked 3 times Sunday night.

The Bears coaching staff is impressed with the 11th overall selection in the 2021 draft but still refuses to start him as their QB1.

The Bears last season finished 8-8 and made the playoffs as the No.7 seed in the NFL’s new playoff format and ended up losing to the Saints 21-9.

Andy Dalton is the starting QB for the Bears for now, but if the trend continues, the calls will get louder for rookie Justin Fields to start.

Dalton will be the starter this weekend.

The Bears host the Bengals at noon ET on FOX.
