On Sunday night, the Chicago Bears were handed their first loss of the season – in the first game of the season – by the Los Angeles Rams.
Veteran quarterback Andy Dalton struggled to keep the Bears offense afloat against a stout Rams defense. The longtime Cincinnati Bengals quarterback notably struggled to throw deep.
The longest pass Dalton completed during the game on Sunday night went for just 19 yards. Marquise Goodwin, the wide receiver who caught that pass, had a brutally honest comment about the team’s lack of a deep passing attack.
“It’s challenging,” he said on Tuesday afternoon. “But I mean, you just got to work with what you get. I don’t control the plays that are called. I don’t control anything but just going out and doing my job.”

Bears fans were clamoring for head coach Matt Nagy to put rookie quarterback Justin Fields into the game.
“Is there anybody besides Matt Nagy who thinks the Bears should be playing Andy Dalton over Justin Fields? Does Andy Dalton even think he should be playing over Justin Fields?” one NFL fan tweeted.
Fields actually received a few snaps during Sunday’s game. He completed both of his passes for 10 yards and scored a three-yard rushing touchdown on his only carry of the game.
Will Fields take over sometime soon?
