WATCH: Justin Fields buys time to find Dante Pettis for Bears 1st TD

·1 min read

It’s been a rough afternoon for the Chicago Bears offense against the San Francisco 49ers, but things might finally be changing in the second half.

After generating next to no offense for the first 30 minutes of the game, the Bears finally got on the board thanks to a miraculous play by Justin Fields. On a long third down, the second-year quarterback was flushed from the pocket, but had the awareness to find wide receiver Dante Pettis wide open on the opposite side of the field. Pettis took the ball 51 yards for the first Bears score of the year to make it a 10-7 ballgame. It was the first pass caught by a Bears wide receiver all day.

Prior to that touchdown pass, the Bears had just 17 yards of total offense. Entering the fourth quarter, the Bears trail the 49ers by three points.
