WATCH: Justin Fields scores 1st career NFL touchdown

By Luke Easterling

The Chicago Bears finally have a franchise quarterback, and they might want to keep him on the field for more than a play at a time.

Justin Fields, the No. 11 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, found the end zone for the first time in his young pro career Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams, keeping the ball himself on an option play and diving into the end zone in his regular-season debut.

Andy Dalton is still the starting quarterback in Chicago, but it shouldn’t take long for the Bears to realize that Fields gives them a much more dynamic skill set at the game’s most important position.
