Justin Fields, who on Sunday set the all-time regular-season record for rushing yards by a quarterback, was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week on Wednesday.
He is the first Bears player to win the award since fellow quarterback Mitch Trubisky in 2018.
Fields completed 17-of-28 passes for 123 yards and a 106.7 passer rating in a 35-32 loss to the Dolphins at Soldier Field. His threw three touchdowns, as many as he had in the first five weeks of the season combined.
His running game, though, was historically dominant. Fields’ 178 rushing yards passed Michael Vick’s previous record of 173 and smashed Bobby Douglass’ 50-year-old Bears record of 127.
“That means a lot,” Field said after the game. “The amount of Bears quarterbacks that came — that’s been here. You know, this franchise has been around for a long time. So I’m definitely honored for sure.”
