In this first half Justin Fields went 7 of 12 (58.3%), for 52 yards, with a passer rating of 68.8. He had 2 runs for 2 yards.— Lester A. Wiltfong Jr. (@wiltfongjr) August 14, 2021
He made good decisions during his time at QB, the fumble is a learning moment, and the drive to end the half was nice. #Bears
