Justin Fields was 5-for-7 on Thursday and threw well on the move.

A national television audience got to see Justin Fields in action on Thursday, as his Chicago Bears traveled to take on the Seattle Seahawks. The second-year quarterback wasn’t in the game for a long time but his performance generally left people impressed.

Fields played in only one series. On that possession, he was 5-for-7 and passed for 39 yards. That included a 19-yard reception to tight end, Cole Kmet, on a well-planned and well-executed rollout.

Chicago’s offensive line was problematic, though. The Seattle pass rush put Fields under a lot of pressure during his brief time in the game. Despite that, Fields avoided taking any sacks.

The drive did stall out in the red zone and the Bears were forced to settle for a 35-yard field goal from Cairo Santos. Still, Fields’ brief time in the game got the attention of several observers in the NFL world. Specifically, they were impressed with how he threw on the move.

In two preseason games, Fields has completed 64.3% of his passes (9-for-14) for 87 yards, no touchdowns, no interceptions and an 81.55 passer rating.

The Bears will finish their preseason schedule on August 27 on the road against the Cleveland Browns and will open the season on September 11 at home against the San Francisco 49ers.
