Former Ohio State Quarterback Justin Fields Accounts for 175 Total Yards, Two Touchdowns in NFL Preseason Debut with Chicago Bears

Justin Fields started slow but finished strong in his NFL preseason debut with the Chicago Bears on Saturday.

The former Ohio State quarterback accounted for 175 total yards and two touchdowns – one passing, one rushing – during his first game action in a Bears uniform, giving fans in Chicago their first glimpse of the dual-threat playmaking ability Fields brought to the Buckeyes for the past two years.

After taking over for starting quarterback Andy Dalton on the Bears’ first possession of the second quarter, Fields’ first three series as an NFL quarterback went poorly, as the Bears failed to gain a first down on any of them.
