A month ago, Justin Fields was still trying to prove he belonged in the NFL. Now, he's doing things that no quarterback has ever done before.

The 23-year-old Chicago Bears QB seems to be getting better with each passing week, culminating in a historic Week 10 performance against the Detroit Lions.

Justin Fields Week 10

After a sluggish start to the season, Fields has taken his game to another level over the last few weeks. He did it again during Week 10 against the Lions, racking up 4 touchdowns in Chicago's 31-30 loss to Detroit.

While the Bears ultimately came up short against their NFC North rivals, Fields became the first player in NFL history to record 2 passing TDs, 2 rushing TDs and 100 rushing yards in the same game. Not even the great Lamar Jackson has had a game like that (yet).

The second-year pro has been on an absolute tear over the past four weeks, tallying 13 total touchdowns (8 passing, 5 rushing) while averaging 155 passing yards and an absurd 116.8 rushing yards per game. This is the kind of MVP-caliber upside the Bears were looking for when they took him 11th overall in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Unfortunately for Fields, his teammates haven't followed suit. Chicago is somehow 1-3 during his prolific stretch, largely because the defense has suddenly collapsed. The Bears now find themselves in last place in their division at 3-7, 5.5 games behind the 8-1 Minnesota Vikings.

Fields will try to snap Chicago's three-game losing streak in Atlanta during Week 11, where the Bears are 3-point road underdogs against the Falcons on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds. Based on how poorly Atlanta's defense has played this year, don't be surprised if Fields goes off for another monster game.
