Bear Necessities: Bill Belichick will be Justin Fields' biggest obstacle in Week 7

Fields is among the most pressured quarterbacks in the NFL through the first six games,

It’s been a rough start to the season for Bears second-year quarterback Justin Fields,

 and he leads the league’s worst passing offense. And things aren’t going to get any easier for him.

Fields will face his biggest obstacle this season when he goes up against the Bill Belichick-led Patriots on Monday Night Football.

Belichick is known to make things difficult on young quarterbacks, which means Fields could be in for a long night.

“He’s able to do what he’s done over the course of the length of his career,” said Bears coach Matt Eberflus,

via Sun-Times. “Take away a guy’s strength and make him play left-handed…

“We’ve seen it in the Super Bowls and seen him in playoff games do it. Even when he was [defensive] coordinator of the Giants,

 you saw him do it there. It’s been a stellar career and he’s been able to do that over the long haul.”

Belichick praised Fields as being “a major threat every time he touches the ball,” whether that’s with his arm or legs.
