Justin Fields sets mark for rushing yards by a QB in a single game

The Bears QB beat a record help by Mike Vick, which is a pretty amazing achievement.

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields has been on a tear lately and his work on the ground has him looking like a top fantasy football quarterback. In terms of real life, though, he just set a record held by a pretty big name. Fields had 15 carries for 178 yards in Week 9 vs. the Miami Dolphins in a loss. The previous record for most rushing yards by a QB in a single game was 173 held by Michael Vick.

Fields also threw for three TDs in the loss and has been one of the biggest surprises the past few weeks in fantasy. The Bears keep losing and it doesn’t look like the playoffs are in their future. At least they know they may have found the franchise fix in Fields at QB. The team also just traded for WR Chase Claypool, who had two catches for 13 yards in his Chicago debut.

Fields has rushed for at least 60 yards in each of the past four games, including at least 80 in the past three. He’s also thrown for five TDs the past two weeks without any interceptions. So the decision-making is clearly coming around a bit.
