That was fast.
Bears quarterback Justin Fields needed just three plays to march the Bears to a touchdown in their first drive of the preseason. On second-and-8 from their own 38-yard line, Fields threw a screen pass left to new receiver DJ Moore. He shot up the left sideline behind blocks from left tackle Braxton Jones and left guard Teven Jenkins for a 62-yard touchdown.
Fields started the game with an 11-yard pass in the flat to fullback Khari Blasingame. He handed the ball off to Khalil Herbert on the second play.
The Bears decided to start Fields in the preseason opener against the Titans at Soldier Field but vowed to be smart with his usage. The Bears will have joint practices in Indianapolis next week that will allow Fields to face a team other than his own while being off-limits for tackling. The Bears consider that more valuable than work in a preseason game.
