Dolphins’ Mike McDaniel tells Justin Fields ‘stop it’ during Bears QB’s career rushing day

Bears quarterbacks Justin Fields’ historic game Sunday was a great annoyance to the Dolphins’ defense — and Miami coach Mike McDaniel.

Fields set an NFL record for rushing yards in a game by a quarterback, with 178 on 15 carries. He averaged 11.9 yards per attempt and also scored a rushing touchdown. As a passer, he completed 17 of 28 attempts for 123 yards and three touchdowns.

On his 14th run of the day, Fields gained 13 yards to the Chicago 42 to convert a third-and-7. That apparently was the breaking point for McDaniel, who, in frustration, told the second-year quarterback to “stop it.” Fields took the jab in stride, smiling as he walked away from the Dolphins’ sideline. The Miami coach looked less than pleased, however:

Thankfully for McDaniel and the Dolphins, Miami ended up holding off Fields and Chicago in a 35-32 victory at Soldier Field. The defense stood up on the Bears’ last two drives, holding Chicago to a punt and a turnover on downs.

This isn’t the first time McDaniel has made news for something he has said on the sideline. During the Dolphins’ Week 8 victory over the Lions, he was seen yelling at an assistant to “get it f—ing fixed” after several defensive penalties.

As long as Miami’s defense continues to keep opposing teams in games, McDaniel will likely continue yelling on the sideline. Whether that’s at his staff or opposing players remains to be seen.
