The Chicago Bears offense wasn’t the problem in Week 8’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys. They scored 29 points. The defense, meanwhile, surrendered 49 (although one touchdown was a Cowboys defensive score).
The main reason why the Bears’ offense was effective Sunday was, once again, QB Justin Fields. He was equal parts passer and runner in Dallas, earning Chicago’s highest grade on offense from Pro Football Focus.
Fields’ 72.6 was the high watermark.
Fields completed 17-of-23 passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns. He added 60 yards on a rushing touchdown on eight carries.
His 72.6 grade was the second-highest PFF score for Fields this season and was aided by his 82.2 mark as a runner.
Next up for Justin Fields and the Bears are the surging Miami Dolphins in Chicago on Sunday, Nov. 6.
