We get to watch Justin Fields play again

Fields missed the last two games because of cracked ribs he suffered in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens. Nagy announced that he was medically cleared this week and would start against the Packers.

Fields threw for 174 yards and a touchdown, along with an interception in the first game. He also added 43 yards on the ground.

The interception was a peculiar one. He thought he had a Packers defender offsides on a play. Replay showed that he indeed was offside, but the officials didn’t call it. Fields thought he had a free play and tried to make a big play. His pass was intercepted and it stood because of the no-call.

In the second half, Fields led a hard-nosed touchdown drive that pulled the Bears to within three points. The defense was unable to stop Rodgers, however, and the Bears lost by 10.

Let’s see how Fields looks in his first game back. Does his injury slow him down? Does Nagy try to prevent him from running because of the ribs? He was getting into a good rhythm when he got injured. It would be nice if he gets back on track. Of course, Nagy’s game plan might hold him back more than the ribs.
