There you have it, folks. Fields being handed the keys to the kingdom in Chicago has been a topic of debate in the media for months, and it’s now happened.
Granted, the Bears didn’t want it to happen because of an injury, but it’s clear that people have been clamoring for this move for a long time.
Now, it’s happened and it’s the Justin Fields show in Chicago.

As a betting man, I’m betting we’ve seen Dalton start his last game in Chicago as long as Fields remains healthy.
I think he’s going to blow people away once they see what he’s fully capable of on the field. As a B1G fan, I can tell you that the young man is a freak-of-nature athlete.
Now, he’ll get to show the whole country Sunday against the Browns. We’re in for a very fun time!
