Justin Fields throws brutal pick-six to seal loss

Justin Fields throws an interception

Justin Fields had a rough day on Sunday, and his worst play came when the Chicago Bears had the ball with a chance to put together a game-winning drive.

The Bears were trailing 20-17 late in their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Chicago forced a punt with under 3 minutes remaining and got the ball back at their own 7-yard line. After a defensive offside and an offensive pass interference, the Bears tried to set up a screen to running back Khalil Herbert. Fields instead threw the ball to Bucs pass-rusher Shaq Barrett, who plowed his way into the end zone.

Barrett’s pick-six put the Bears up two scores and essentially sealed the game. But just to make sure, Fields also threw an interception on the ensuing drive.

Fields was the subject of a lot of offseason hype, but his season is off to a rough start. The former Ohio State star has thrown three interceptions in two games. Fields also fumbled twice on Sunday, though he did not lose either of them.

Fields finished 16/29 for 211 yards, 1 touchdown and the 2 picks. He added 4 rushes for 3 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
