It’s game day!!!

The NFL’s 102nd season got started back on Thursday night with an exciting game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys, and what made that game so thrilling was the quarterbacks, Tom Brady and Dak Prescott. Brady is arguably the greatest quarterback to ever play, and Prescott has been on an incredible statistical run in his last several games.

Watching football with a legitimate field general under center is just different. Their playmaking ability and the cerebral way they can dissect a defense makes fans believe their team always has a chance to win.

This is the hope that all Chicago Bears are holding on to with Justin Fields now in the Windy City.

We aren’t going to see him open up with the ones this week, but at some point this season Fields’ journey will begin.

On Sunday night it’ll be Andy Dalton and the Bears starting offense facing off against the Los Angeles Rams’ Aaron Donald, Leonard Floyd, and Jalen Ramsey, and L.A.’s Matthew Stafford facing off with the Bears’ Khalil Mack, Eddie Jackson, and Akiem Hicks.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Bears vs Rams week 1 matchup.
