Although the Chicago Bears fell to the Miami Dolphins at home this past Sunday, fans can confidently say it was one of the most entertaining losses in recent memory. Why? Well, quarterback Justin Fields put on an absolute show. With 123 passing yards, 178 rushing yards, and four total touchdowns (three in the air, one on the ground), Fields cemented himself as "HIM" in Chicago. His 178 rushing yards were also an NFL record by a quarterback in a single regular-season game. 

With all the accolades, Fields was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 9. 

The second-year quarterback was spectacular on Sunday afternoon. With magical plays such as his dime to Darnell Mooney, his beautiful ball fake on one of Cole Kmet's touchdowns, and his miraculous scamper late in the game, Fields dazzled in front of the Bears' faithful. 

In addition, Fields performance was so impressive, he did something that was a first in the NFL this season. His POTW performance is the first on either side of the league for a player who's team lost. That's crazy.

That said, the guy is a human highlight reel. Fields continues to dazzle with incredible performances. In addition, he's been one of the better quarterbacks since Week 5 of the season. If Week 9 is any indication, Justin Fields is on an incredible trajectory to becoming the franchise quarterback Bears' fans have dreamed of for decades.
