Bears enthusiasts find themselves in the midst of a challenging season. Despite the struggles, Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields injected some humor into a post-game interview when addressing a reporter’s inquiry about the finger injury he sustained during Sunday’s matchup against the Detroit Lions.
Social media buzzed with observations of Fields sporting a bleeding nail on his middle finger during the game. When questioned about it after the match, the third-year QB tactfully avoided any misinterpretation, ensuring not to “flip the bird” to anyone:
Fields concluded the game with 16 completions on 23 attempts, amassing 169 yards and contributing a touchdown, in addition to an impressive 104 rushing yards. Although the Bears came tantalizingly close to upsetting the Lions, the defense conceded two late touchdowns, resulting in a 31-26 defeat.
Looking ahead, Chicago is set to face the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football next week. However, there’s a consensus among fans that for the Bears to see significant improvement, a new coaching staff for Fields in the upcoming season is imperative. Without such changes, the team might be poised for more challenges akin to their current struggles.
