Bears head coach Matt Nagy had periodically inserted Fields into the game over the first two-and-a-half quarters before Chicago brought in their first-round pick with the football on the Rams’ 3-yard line late in the third quarter.
Fields took the snap out of shotgun and faked a handoff to running back Damien Williams before Fields pulled the ball back, ran to the right and cut up-field to beat the Rams defense for a 3-yard touchdown to pull the Bears within 20-14.
