As long as rookie quarterback Justin Fields is always learning on the fly, it never hurts the Chicago Bears to have someone else who can shoulder the burden.

Fields threw for just 111 yards in Sunday’s 20-9 win over the Las Vegas Raiders, but the defense pulled off their second straight dominant effort and the running game continued to thrive even without injured David Montgomery.

Khalil Mack and the defense, in particular, helped the Bears (3-2) go from a devastating 26-6 loss to Cleveland two weeks ago playing for leader NFC North this weekend at home against the Green Bay Packers (4-1).

“I really felt like we were relentless all day against a really good offense,” Bears coach Matt Nagy said of his defense on Monday. “You could feel it.

“It was a game where we were able to affect them and I think it all started with 52 (Mack) too. In every room, Khalil was everywhere. It was really one of those games where you could see that they knew where he was in every game and that he was still able to affect the game.

The Bears added three more sacks to what had been a total of 15 league-leading teams and Mack had one. He also had one in a 2 point conversion which didn’t go over his stats total but had a huge impact on the game.

“So overall it was 11 guys in defense who were just flying against a really good offense with a lot of good players,” Nagy said.

The Bears entered the top 10 on defense in Sunday’s games and are now seventh in points allowed.

Their offense ran for 143 yards on Sunday to round out that defense. A running team with a solid defense isn’t exactly what Nagy intended to do when he came to Chicago, but if he wins in football, he’ll live with it.

“I think you fit your staff,” Nagy said. “Each year could be a little different.

“I think you see that with some offenses as they grow up and as they get to certain things. What I like is that I think we have a really good mix right now in our attack of ways of getting things done. If they stop something, we can access it because we have some multiplicity within the offense. I’m good with it. I like it.”
