Justin Fields is coming off arguably the best game of his career vs the 49ers.

Justin Fields has started just six games so far in his young career, but he is already leaving a lasting impression on his opponents.

The Chicago Bears may have lost their Week 8 battle against the San Francisco 49ers, 33–22, but there were several positives for the Bears to take from the game, the primary of which was a very promising performance by the rookie QB. Fields notched the first 100+ yard rushing game of his career, running for 103 yards on 10 attempts, and scoring on a dazzling play that went viral in a hurry:

The 22-year-old quarterback also completed 19 of 27 passes for 175 yards, a TD and an interception, although the pick was a pass that should have been caught by Bears wide receiver Darnell Mooney:

NFL World Reacts To The Philip Rivers Speculation

Philip Rivers throws the ball for the Colts.

The New Orleans Saints have lost Jameis Winston for the season. The starting quarterback suffered a torn ACL and MCL damage during Sunday’s win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Mortensen wasn’t the only one, either.

Kevin Durant ejected vs. Pistons after shoving Kelly Olynyk

Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant was ejected from their 117-91 win over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night after he took a shot at Kelly Olynyk’s neck.

Durant, in the third quarter of the win at the Barclays Center, was following Pistons forward Saddiq Bey to the top of the key when Olynyk set a hard screen. 

Durant, in an effort to get through it, shoved Olynyk hard three times — including once to the neck — before Olynyk went sprawling to the floor.

Officials quickly called Durant for a flagrant 2 foul and was ejected from the game.

He finished the night with 23 points and five assists while shooting 10-of-13 from the field.

The ejection marks the second straight game where Durant either was or should have been ejected. Durant, officials admitted after Brooklyn’s 105-96 win over the Indiana Pacers on Friday night, should have been ejected
