Justin Fields ties NFL QB record; 6 straight games w/rushing TD




 

Fields ties NFL QB record; 6 straight games w/rushing TD originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Justin Fields is officially back.

The Bears' second-year quarterback missed Week 12's game against the New York Jets, but returned with a 56-yard touchdown in his second drive against the Packers.

With that touchdown run, he tied Johnny Lujack for the longest quarterback game streak with a rushing touchdown, running for a house call in his sixth-straight game.

His sixth-straight game with a rushing touchdown also tied Bears' running back Gale Sayers as the last player to accomplish the same feat with 50+ rushing yards in each of those games.

Another rushing touchdown next week, and he'll add another NFL record to his résumé.

Despite Fields' hindrance to his left shoulder - which the FOX broadcast reported only hurt him on runs at full speed - he continues to display his dominance on the ground.

He now has three touchdown runs over 50 yards, with a 67-yarder against the Detroit Lions in Week 10 and a 61-yarder against the Miami Dolphins a week prior.
