But after the Cowboys scored on a seven-yard rush by running back Tony Pollard, things went from bad to worse for Fields.
After a completion to running back David Montgomery on a 3rd-and-17 in the third quarter, trailing 35-23, Dallas Cowboys and former Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons retained possession of a forced fumble.
Instead of touching Parsons to ensure that he was down after recovering Montgomery's fumble, Fields jumped over the Cowboys linebacker, who returned it 36 yards for a Cowboys touchdown.
Through the first three quarters, Fields had two touchdown passes and one touchdown rush against the Cowboys.
Heading into Sunday's game, Fields had completed 55.9% of his passes for 1,048 passing yards, five touchdowns and six interceptions, adding 364 yards and two touchdowns in the rushing game.
In seven games, Fields, a former No. 11 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, has led the Bears to a 3-4 record.
