Fields, Bears try to build on progress when Commanders visit


AP Sports Writer

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago quarterback Justin Fields finally showed signs of progress by delivering his best performance this season, and the Bears staged a big comeback, only to come up short in the closing minutes. They hope those promising steps continue when they host the struggling Washington Commanders in a Thursday night matchup. Fields set career highs in completion rate and passer rating in a 29-22 loss at Minnesota on Sunday. The former Ohio State star was 15 of 21 for a season-best 208 yards and a touchdown. The Commanders come in with four straight losses since holding on to beat Jacksonville in their season opener. Tennessee beat them 21-17 last week.
