The Chicago Bears and Cincinnati Bengals played a relatively clean first half of football, resulting in a close game. The narrative changed in the second half as they combined for five turnovers, including four on consecutive series from the Bengals. Andy Dalton was efficient in the first half until an ankle injury forced him to retire from the game, opening the door for Justin Fields, the No. 11 overall selection in the 2021 draft.
Fields completed 6 of his 13 passes for 60 yards and one interception. He is still searching for his first NFL passing touchdown.

Tee Higgins, Ja'Marr Chase and Allen Robinson were on the receiving end of the game's three offensive touchdowns.
