CHICAGO — On the drive after he scored on the ground for his first touchdown as a member of the Chicago Bears, Justin Fields connected with tight end Jesse James for a 30-yard passing touchdown. Coming on a play-action pass, Fields found James wide open downfield, leading to James backpedaling into the end zone for a go-ahead touchdown.

Fields' first passing touchdown as a pro capped off a 70-yard drive at Soldier Field that saw running back Khalil Herbert move the chains on a fourth-down carry and Fields record a 21-yard run. While Fields was showing out on the scoring drive, Ohio State fan LeBron James shouted out the former Buckeyes quarterback on Twitter.
