2. Justin Fields will lead the Chicago Bears with over 300 total yards yet again

Compiling 300 yards for another week in a row would be something special for Fields to do, although not impossible. We have already established the fact that this Chicago offense runs the ball better and more efficiently than any team in the NFL.

What we haven’t talked about, though, is how they continue to rank last in passing yards per game with just 125.7. So, with that in mind, there is a caveat to this bold prediction.

The caveat, here, is that Fields will rush for a good amount, but he is going to throw for over 240 yards. This is a number he has yet to hit this season and has only hit once in his professional career. Fields hasn’t topped 200 yards passing since throwing for 208 in a loss to the Minnesota Vikings a month ago, so yes, this would be a rare occurrence all things considered.

The Lions are giving up the fourth-most passing yards per game at 268.5, so if Fields throws for 240, Detroit is still under their season average. Things could be lining up for an enormous outing from the second-year gunslinger.
