Fields’ Ground Game Milestone

Marking his 5th career game with over 100 rushing yards, Fields demonstrated his dual-threat abilities. Although it was his first 100-yard rushing game of the season, this marked the fifth time in his career that he surpassed the century mark.

Tremaine Edmunds sealed the defensive showcase with another interception.
