LANDOVER, Md. – Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears‘ offense got off to a fast start Thursday as the team aims to end its franchise-worst 14-game losing streak.

After winning the coin toss and electing to receive, Fields found wide receiver DJ Moore for a 58-yard reception on the third play from scrimmage.

It was Fields’ longest completion of the season and second longest of his career.

Three plays later facing another third-and-long situation, Fields found Moore again in the back corner of the end zone for a 20-yard touchdown reception.

Chicago converted on both third-and-9 and third-and-14 on its six-play, 75-yard scoring drive.

After the most productive first quarter of his NFL career (145 passing yards), Fields found Moore again to open up the second quarter in continuation of Chicago’s third drive.

Facing third-and-6 from the Washington 11-yard line, Moore hauled in a contested catch over Washington cornerback Kendall Fuller for a touchdown to extend Chicago’s lead to 17-0.

Moore is the first Bears player with consecutive 130-yard receiving games since Brandon Marshall in 2012.
