Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields did not play well against the Green Bay Packers. He only completed 11-of-16 passes for 148 yards and rushed for 27 yards on eight carries with the Bears dropping the game to the Packers on the road 17-9.
This is the 10th consecutive game that Chicago has lost to Green Bay. This could very well be the final game that Justin Fields has played in a Bears uniform. He is 0-6 all-time against the Packers. Chicago will have the number one overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft thanks to the Carolina Panthers (2-15).
Fields told the media after the game about it possibly being his final game played with the Chicago Bears:
“I gave it my all. So whether it’s here or not, I have no regrets. Just to the city of Chicago: love y’all. Appreciate the fans and appreciate the support from all the Bears in case this is my last rodeo with ya’ll.”
Justin Fields finished the season by completing 61.4% of his passes for 2,562 yards, 16 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. He also rushed for 657 yards on 124 carries and four touchdowns, along with averaging 5.3 yards per carry.
After Justin Fields drops to 0-6 Against the Green Bay Packers, the Chicago Bears May Keep Him Anyway
Fields has struggled in his career against the Packers, but that wouldn’t be the reason why they would get rid of him if they did. There are two quarterbacks they can take at number one and that is either Caleb Williams of USC or Drake Maye of North Carolina. There is an outside shot that Jayden Daniels of LSU can move up the boards over them.
Anyhow, if they decided not to go that route, there is no doubt they should take wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. from Ohio State as number one overall. He is a generational talent at the wide receiver position and is the best wide receiver prospect coming out of college since Calvin Johnson Jr. from Georgia Tech. He was taken second overall in the 2007 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions.
Chicago will also own the ninth overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. The Bears could decide to run it back one more year with Fields, but it may be best as a business decision to move off of him this offseason. General manager Ryan Poles will have to make that decision. There would be a lot of upset Packers fans if the Chicago Bears moved off of Justin Fields.
