3 Chicago Bears with the most to prove during the final three games

There are three games left in the season for the Bears and no chance at the playoffs. That doesn't mean these guys should be taking their foot off the gas.

Justin Fields needs a highlight tape.

Quarterback Justin Fields will be playing hard these next three weeks for no other reason but himself, as he should. Just like many Chicago quarterbacks that came before him, it's no secret Fields has not been given the fairest chance at success with the Bears. But he will have at least a chance to put together three games that can showcase a glimpse of what he could be capable of, whether that be for the Bears or someone else.

There are so many different paths for Fields to take and almost all of them are, for the most part, out of his control. The Bears could decide to take a big-name quarterback in the upcoming draft and keep Fields as the starter or bench him. The Bears could decide to draft a new quarterback and trade Fields for more draft capital as they look to move forward. The Bears could decide to keep Fields, not draft a quarterback early, and move forward with Fields as the guy (for now).

While all these options are directly in the Bears' hands, Fields' play these next three weeks can (and probably will) have a big say in what they decide to do. But, for Fields, it's pretty cut and dry. The better he plays, the better the outcome for him personally.
