When quarterback Justin Fields transferred to Ohio State, the coaching staff dreamed of big plays and explosive performances on offense. He is exceeding even the grandest expectations this season and his latest touchdown shows precisely why he’s unstoppable.
The Buckeyes were pinned to the 30-yard line on third-and-20 – a situation where most teams would look to gain a few yards to set up a shorter field-goal attempt. Instead, Fields sat back in the pocket and unleashed a rocket into tight coverage in a spot only receiver Binjimen Victor could grab.
Ohio State’s senior receiver took Fields’ stellar throw and made an even more stunning catch by leaping over the defensive back to haul it in and then got his feet down before falling out of the end zone.
Whether Fields is ruining the hopes of opposing defenses with his legs, deep ball or pinpoint accuracy, he always finds a way to beat them. A six-touchdown performance in a single half is just another step in this monster season.
