LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears are seeing positive flashes from rookie quarterback Justin Fields and getting solid contributions in the run game no matter who is carrying the ball.
When it comes to scoring, they are struggling in a big way.
CHICAGO (AP) — Given where they were a few weeks ago, the Chicago Bears' odds of grabbing a share of the NFC North lead seemed about as long as a Hail Mary pass.
Back-to-back wins have them in position to do just that.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — As long as rookie quarterback Justin Fields is still learning on the fly, it never hurts the Chicago Bears to have someone else who can shoulder the burden.
Fields threw for just 111 yards in Sunday’s 20-9 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders, but the defense turned in its second straight dominant effort and the running game continued to thrive even without the injured David Montgomery.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy had a plan to develop Justin Fields and resisted making the rookie his team's starting quarterback from the start of offseason practices.
Nagy has changed his mind and on Wednesday made Fields the team's starting quarterback going forward.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears' offense has dealt with adversity from injuries since the second game of the season.
It will only worsen heading into preparation for their game Sunday at Las Vegas against the Raiders, because now the injuries include running backs as well as quarterbacks.
CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Bears say rookie quarterback Justin Fields will start against the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
The team announced Saturday that Fields will make his second straight start while listing Andy Dalton as doubtful.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears will wait until game time to announce their starting quarterback for Sunday’s game against Detroit, choosing between Andy Dalton and rookie Justin Fields.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Coming off one of the worst performances by an offense the NFL has seen, things can only get better for the Chicago Bears this week.
The Bears look to pick themselves up when they host the winless Detroit Lions on Sunday in a matchup between teams coming off losses that were gut wrenching for different reasons.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Bears coach Matt Nagy was not ready to say who the starting quarterback will be when Chicago hosts the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
Veteran Andy Dalton remains the No. 1 signal-caller, with rookie Justin Fields backing him up and Nick Foles in the third spot, Nagy said Wednesday.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — A historically bad effort by the Chicago offense has coach Matt Nagy rethinking his approach after only the third week of the season.
It could all lead to a change in who calls the plays or even who the quarterback is as the Bears prepare to face the Detroit Lions on Sunday at Soldier Field.
CLEVELAND (AP) — There was going to be a point, maybe later this season or early next, when Justin Fields was going to become Chicago's starting quarterback.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears planned to have Justin Fields adjust to the NFL while watching from the sideline as a backup to veteran Andy Dalton.
Well, so much for that.
Fields is set to make his first start when the Bears visit the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Whether they want to or not, the Chicago Bears just might have to go with rookie Justin Fields.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — While the debate in Chicago over whether Andy Dalton or Justin Fields should be the Bears' starting quarterback continued, coach Matt Nagy opted to take a pass.
He wasn't about to play the comparison game a day after a season-opening loss to the Rams in Los Angeles.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears are counting on Justin Fields to develop into the franchise quarterback Mitchell Trubisky never became.
It's just not clear when his opportunity will come.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Justin Fields is right where the Chicago Bears hoped he would be at the end of the preseason.
All coach Matt Nagy will say is that they feel good with where the Bears are with their quarterbacks, a group that includes Andy Dalton set to start the opener and veteran Nick Foles along with the 11th overall pick in Fields.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears will start rookie quarterback Justin Fields in the preseason finale Saturday at Tennessee against the Titans.
“I prepare the same,” Fields said. “I’m just going to approach it the same way and just go out there and play my hardest.”
Justin Fields outshined his fellow first-round quarterbacks in their preseason openers.
Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Trey Lance and Mac Jones also made a positive impression in their debuts. So did Jordan Love, who isn’t a rookie but didn’t take a snap last year.
ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have been required to make changes to their coaching staff over the years, the natural byproduct of success, as top assistants such as Doug Pederson and Matt Nagy got hired away for better jobs elsewhere.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Quarterback Andy Dalton has the support of Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy even if it’s apparent the allegiance of fans at Soldier Field rests elsewhere.
The Bears have a unique quarterback situation with popular rookie Justin Fields not expected to win the starting spot away from Dalton for opening day despite eye-opening play in the first preseason game, a 20-13 win over the Miami Dolphins on Saturday.
CHICAGO (AP) — Once rookie quarterback Justin Fields settled in the Chicago Bears saw the playmaking ability they dreamed about on draft day.
Fields rallied Chicago back Saturday from a 13-0 deficit in his preseason debut by throwing for a touchdown and running for one in a 20-13 victory over the Miami Dolphins.
CHICAGO (AP) — Matt Nagy is so confident his starting quarterback is ready, the Chicago Bears coach wouldn't be too nervous if the NFL decided to open the season this week.
That's how strong an impression veteran Andy Dalton is making.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The balancing act for Matt Nagy has begun.
The Chicago Bears coach made it clear as players reported Tuesday for training camp why the team is starting veteran quarterback Andy Dalton first before it turns to rookie first-round pick Justin Fields.
LAKE FOREST, IL (AP) — Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields is taking it one step at a time even if a large amount of the team’s fan base wants him playing on opening night against the Los Angeles Rams.
