The Bears aren’t revealing if they plan to use Justin Fields more against the Bengals, but what they’re saying sure makes it sound like he should play more.
“He looked like he belonged. He looked like he could be successful. Nothing was too big for him, which we didn’t think it would be.” said offensive coordinator coach Bill Lazor.
“He was very composed. I wasn’t too surprised. He’s played in a lot of big games,” said Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson. “I didn’t expect him to be too taken aback by that atmosphere.”MORE NEWS: Desperate To Find More Staff, Some Fast Food Restaurants Recruiting Customers
Andy Dalton said he doesn’t feel like Fields coming in sporadically affects his rhythm even when it’s in the red zone. He pointed out Fields scored a touchdown and Dalton said at the end of the day, that’s what they’re trying to do.
