With the Chicago Bears sitting at 3-6, the immediate future isn’t encouraging in terms of this season’s outlook. But with the influx of young talent on the roster, the future is certainly bright for the Bears.

That starts with rookie quarterback Justin Fields, who is coming off his breakout game on the road in prime time. Fields took a huge step forward in his development, and he showed everyone why he has the potential to be a star in the league.

One of Fields’ favorite targets in that game was second-year tight end Cole Kmet, who led the Bears with six receptions for 87 yards, which were career highs. Kmet has been more involved in the passing game over the last couple of weeks, where his chemistry with Fields has flourished.

The Bears’ Twitter account released a clip of a mic’d up Kmet sharing a cool moment with Fields after one of their fourth-quarter scoring drives.

“Let’s build on it,” Kmet told Fields, speaking to the offense’s performance in the fourth quarter.

“We know what we can do,” Fields said before Kmet added, “We’re close.”

The Bears offense totaled 414 yards on one of the NFL’s best defenses, where Fields was slinging it down the field. The offense looked the best it has this season during the fourth quarter, where they put up 21 points.

The Bears saw production from some players who haven’t really had an impact on offense this season, inlcuding receivers Allen Robinson and Marquise Goodwin and even Jimmy Graham got involved for the second time this season.

Chicago is off this week, but when they return the goal will be to build on that momentum from Monday’s loss to the Steelers. Consistency is key, and the Bears will be looking to replicate their fourth-quarter production for entire games.
