Justin Fields set to resume as Bears’ starting QB despite Tyson Bagent’s impressive performance against Raiders

The Chicago Bears find themselves sitting at the bottom of the highly competitive NFC North division, with a disappointing 2-5 mark. Their first victory was in week 5 against the Washington Commanders, and their most recent victory was in week 7 against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Besides going down to consecutive games, the Bears were also dealing with a problem regarding their starting quarterback, Justin Fields, who sustained the injury in week 6. They imposed the responsibility on Tyson Bagent, the undrafted rookie from Division II Shepherd University. The young star filled the void perfectly, albeit the franchise will be loyal to their QB1 only.

Justin Fields remains the Bears’ starting QB

With Fields’ doubtful game status and a possible surgery in the pipeline, Bagent enjoyed the practice session on Wednesday, with the aim of being the starter in the match against the Las Vegas Raiders at Soldier Field. He indeed started the week 7 campaign and even put an end to the team’s losing streak.

Certainly, here’s the revised paragraph with the suggested improvements:

However, the Bears are not ready to turn to the rookie just yet. Instead, they are putting their trust in their first-round draft pick, who is their current starter. During a press conference, the team’s head coach, Matt Eberflus, stated that Tyson performed exceptionally, but Justin will resume his role as the starter when he recovers.

“Justin is our starting quarterback. Tyson’s the backup, he came in and did a nice job. We don’t know where Justin is, we’ll see where he is, if it’s a week-to-week thing, we’ll assess it more tomorrow,” he said via BVM Sports.

The Bears QB1 dislocated his thumb on his right hand in the third quarter of the team’s 13-19 loss to the Minnesota Vikings and left the game.

Bagnet played a crucial role as a key offensive contributor for the Bears, expertly executing the game plan outlined by offensive coordinator Luke Getsy. His exceptional accuracy, precise ball throwing, and successful connections with multiple receivers played a pivotal role in tipping the scales in Chicago’s favor.

The young rising star completed an impressive 21 out of 29 passes, accumulating 162 yards through the air, and delivering a pivotal touchdown. In addition to his prowess as a passer, he demonstrated his versatility by rushing the ball three times, gaining a total of 24 yards. His stellar performance was instrumental in orchestrating two early touchdown drives during the second quarter, ultimately leading the team to a resounding 30-12 victory over the Raiders.

The small-town kid from West Virginia was pleased with his performance. In a post-match conference, he stated that he felt like he could play in this position a million times.

“I feel like I’ve played like a million games at quarterback. I was able to win the job in high school my sophomore year. And then I started every game through my senior year in college. So that’s seven years of starting, of understanding what a week of preparation looks like and going through pretty much every (pass) concept and run concept there is.”

From Bears tight end Cole Kmet to right guard Teven Jenkins and the entire NFL community, the performance against the Raiders has garnered heavy praise. Bagnet’s phenomenal athleticism and their outstanding performance have been the talk of the town.
