Bears’ Justin Fields Throws Brutal Interception off Commanders Defender’s Helmet Near End Zone

The Chicago Bears were about to score the first touchdown of the game against the Washington Commanders on Thursday night at Soldier Field. That is until quarterback Justin Fields’ pass to tight end Cole Kmet didn’t really go as planned.

On the 11th play of the Bears’ second drive of the game from the Washington 5-yard line, Fields dropped back and threw a pass that hit defensive tackle Efe Obada right in the face. The ball went into the air, and Commanders tackle Jonathan Allen looked up and caught it, leaving the Bears without a point.

On 2nd-and-goal, Ryan Griffin was wide open on the right side of the end zone, but Fields threw the ball too far away from him. The ball seemed to be moving too fast, and Griffin’s stretched arm wasn’t long enough to catch it with one hand.

Fields couldn’t believe it both times, but the Bears have lost three of their last four games, so that’s how things have been going. Fields played well in last week’s NFC North game between the Bears and the Minnesota Vikings. He went 15 for 21 with a touchdown pass and ran for 47 yards. But in the end, the Vikings came out on top.

Before that, the Bears couldn’t find the end zone when they played the New York Giants in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and they lost 20-12. In that game, Bears kicker Michael Badgley made two field goals from 22 and 29 yards. The Giants’ defense also stopped them from scoring when they were close to the end zone.
