It's almost go time as the Chicago Bears will face off against their rival Green Bay Packers on Sunday in week one.

Franchise quarterback Justin Fields met with the media Wednesday and believes that the offense has an identity that it found late last season.

"I think we did find our identity a little bit into the year, but I think we know what we want to do on offense, and we know what we want to get accomplished. "Of course, we're going to continue to improve throughout the year, as the year goes along, but I think it's going to be a little bit of both.

"We do have new players on the team, [we're] going to have to find this new team's identity, but we already kind of do have an identity set in place from last year. Definitely going to roll with that, too."

Fields knows that it can't just be D.J. Moore making plays, as all 11 players need to be on the same page.

"We have a lot of great players around us," Fields said, "but at the end of the day, no matter who's on the field, you've got to go out there and execute, go out there and do your job. Everybody has to do it. It's going to take all 11. And as long as we do that, we'll be in good shape."

Fields wants to work hard and win.

"I feel comfortable as far as everything goes with footwork and stuff like that," Fields said, "so just working hard, doing what I do day-in and day-out and just getting better each and every day. Whatever the defense presents, whichever way they're gonna allow us to beat them, that's what we're going to do. Whatever I have to do for this team to win, that's what I'm gonna do. I'll just go about it like that."

Fields knows that playing your rival is a big game that fans think about all off-season.

"Of course, it's a big rivalry, but it's Game 1," Fields said. "It's the most important game of the season, so I'm not really looking back towards history. I'm looking toward now. We've got a different team this year. Last year, that was last year, so it's a different year. We don't really care what happened in the past. That doesn't affect what's going to happen on Sunday. We're just looking to go out there, play our best, and put our best foot forward."

The Bears and the Packers will get it going at 3:25 p.m. CT on Sunday from Soldier Field.
