CHICAGO. The Chicago Bears lead the NFL offense with 188.4 yards per game. The input the Bears received from quarterback Justin Fields is an important part of that success.
Trailing by 11 and facing 3rd and 5th in their first drive in the third quarter against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, Fields stepped back to pass and saw an opening in the left flank of his offensive line.

The Bears quarterback, a sophomore, struggled to throw a 61-yard touchdown, the second longest for a quarterback this season, and remained untouched en route to the end zone. It was Fields’ longest run of his NFL career.
Although the Dolphins entered Week 9 with the NFL’s No. 6 defenseman, they allowed the opposing quarterbacks to run for 192 yards. The quarterback’s longest rushing touchdown this season also came against Miami, when Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson hit for 79 yards in his second week.
