What we want to see from Justin Fields in final two games: Take advantage of poor pass defenses
Finally, we just want to see Fields do what he should be doing against the Lions and Vikings pass defenses.
Let’s start with Detroit. On the season, the Lions own the NFL’s 30th ranked pass defense, giving up over 264 passing yards per game. Detroit has simply not been good, despite making a bit of a push to try and get themselves into the postseason during the second half of the season.
The Lions have also given up 24 passing touchdowns on the year, good for the fourth-worst mark in the league.
Meanwhile, the Vikings are dead last in pass defense this season, giving up 281.5 yards through the air on average.
Ask any Vikings fan, and they’ll tell you their number one worry when it comes to making a Super Bowl run. it’s 100 percent on that passing defense. They have been atrocious.
Of course, the Bears’ passing attack has been the league worst. But, they do boast the number one rushing attack in football, despite putting up a tough performance on the ground against Buffalo last week.
All we want to see is for Luke Getsy to allow Fields the opportunities to get it going through the air. With these two games remaining, let’s allow the franchise quarterback to end on a high note and prove that he can, indeed, be as lethal through the air as he is on the ground.
