Justin Fields has scored his first NFL touchdown.

The former Ohio State quarterback's first trip to the end zone came in the third quarter of the Chicago Bears’ season opener against the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday night as Fields scampered into the end zone for a 3-yard touchdown run on 1st-and-goal.

The touchdown came on Fields' first rushing attempt in his NFL regular-season debut.

While Andy Dalton started at quarterback for the Bears on Sunday night, the Bears have been substituting Fields into the lineup for occasional plays. He also completed the first passing attempt of his NFL career to Marquise Goodwin for a 9-yard gain in the first quarter.

Following the Bears' 34-14 loss, in which Fields was on the field for five total plays and completed two total passes for 10 yards, he caught up with his former Ohio State teammate and current Rams safety Jordan Fuller.
