QB1 is electric for the Monsters of the Midway.

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields was named NFL Offensive Player of the Week for his play in Sunday's 35-32 loss to the Dolphins.

Fields was the first player in NFL history to rush for 140+ yards and throw three or more TD passes in a game since at least 1950.

For the game, he completed 17 out of 28 passes for 123 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions for a passer rating of QBR of 95.4. He also had an impressive 178 yards rushing with touchdown runs of 18, 16, and four yards.

Fields has passed for 1,322 yards with ten touchdowns on the season for a QBR of 55.1.

He is the first Bears player to win this honor since quarterback Mitch Trubisky did it in week 10 of the 2018 season.

The Bears will host the Lions on Sunday at Soldier Field.
