Fields has a 55.7% completion percentage in 2022 with 3 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. He has also rushed for 194 yards and 1 touchdown.
PFF ranks the Bears at 26th overall in their 2022 Week 6 team ratings.
TakingVegas.com 1* Pick: Under 39.5
These two teams have not been offensive powerhouses this season. Both broke into the twenties in points scored in only 2 out of their 5 games. Otherwise, they have been low scorers. The Bears scored 22 last week in their Week 5 loss to the Vikings. The Commanders scored 17 in their Week 5 loss to the Titans. It is a tossup who wins this game; however, it is likely to be a low scoring event that could turn into a head-to-head challenge among the kickers.
