Both teams own 3-4 records after Bears’ victory
Justin Fields threw for 179 yards and a touchdown and ran for 82 yards.
In a matchup of quarterbacks from the 2020 College Football Playoff National Championship game, Fields outperformed Jones, who led Alabama to victory over Fields’ Ohio State.
Zappe was 5 of 6 for 109 yards and a touchdown in the first-half. But in the second, he was 9 of 16 for 76 yards and two interceptions.
The Bears had also lost five straight to the Patriots and eight out of nine since beating New England in the 1986 Super Bowl 46-10.
