Video of Justin Fields constantly under pressure goes viral
If Thursday’s preseason game is any indication, it’s going to be a long season for Justin Fields.
Fields’ Chicago Bears beat the Seattle Seahawks 27-11 in Week 2 of the preseason. Fields started and went 5/7 for 39 yards. He led the Bears on a field-goal drive to start the game, but things did not go smoothly.
A video that went viral on social media showed Fields constantly under pressure throughout the drive.

Fields was sacked 36 times as a rookie last season and struggled. He threw for 7 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, and rushed for 420 yards.
The Bears are hoping that Fields will develop into a franchise quarterback. Chicago will have to improve its protection across the offensive line in order for that to have a chance of happening.
