Mike McDaniel tried a new defensive tactic against Justin Fields on Sunday.
In three quarters of their Week 9 game, the Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields looked outstanding against the Miami Dolphins defense. Fields had only thrown for 96 yards and two touchdowns, but he added 114 yards and a rushing touchdown, including a rush for 61 yards.
By Zac Al-Khateeb, On his 14th rush of the day, Fields gained 13 yards on the Chicago 42 to convert a third-and-a-7. That was apparently the breaking point for McDaniel, who in frustration told the second-year quarterback to “stop” it. Fields took the hit in stride, smiling as he walked away from the Dolphins sideline. The Miami coach looked less satisfied, however:
Justin Fields’ historic game for the Bears on Sunday angered the Dolphins’ defense — and Miami coach Mike McDaniel. Fields set an NFL record for rushing yards by a quarterback in a game with 178 on 15 carries. He had one touchdown and averaged 11.9 yards per attempt. He completed 17 of 28 passes for 123 yards and three touchdowns.
Justin Fields is the second quarterback this season to rush for 100+ yards against the Dolphins. Lamar Jackson did it in week 2.
Even McDaniel’s words are powerless to stop him.
