Fields broke numerous records this season for the Chicago Bears, including the single-season Bears record for most rushing yards by a quarterback. He also broke the single-game NFL rushing record for a quarterback and would have broken Lamar Jackson’s single-season rushing record had he not been held out of the final game with an injury.
