Justin Fields was back under center on Saturday afternoon.

The former Buckeye made his NFL debut in a preseason game between Chicago and Miami. While there was a lot of hype and anticipation surrounding Fields heading into the first game, it was obvious that there’s still a learning curve.

Fields’ 1st half didn’t quite go as planned. He completed 7-of-12 passes for 52 yards through the opening 30 minutes. He also had 2 carries for 2 yards. Fields’ start was a little rough, completing just 2-of-6 passes for 10 yards until the Bears’ final drive.

Many were hoping to see a much better showing from the quarterback of the future.

It’s important to remember, though, that it’s just the first game of the preseason. It’s not uncommon for fans to overreact, but there will undoubtedly be some things Fields must get accustomed to before he can be successful.
