It’s been an interesting first month of the regular season for Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields.
Fields hasn’t made the jump that some fans want and it has worried him. In four games, he has only thrown for 471 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.
He ranks last in the NFL in this month’s slate of games in completions, effort, and passer ratings.
Despite those struggles, Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy thinks he’s getting better every week.
“I don’t think he’s had a bad month,” Getsy said via ESPN. “I think he’s gotten better every week. I think he’s growing tremendously. And you know, it’s not easy. We’re playing a good football team, and it’s not easy to be the level of a quarterback who is.” He wants to be, and I know he can be.”
“The important thing is that we stay focused, keep our eye on that progress or that process and we make sure that we get better every week and I believe we are in that phase.”
Fields will have a chance to rise even higher on Sunday when the Bears take on the Minnesota Vikings 3-1.
Kickoff will take place at 1 pm. ET.
