The 23-year-old also recalled idolizing Julio Jones. His Falcons fandom may have added additional meaning to the recent accolade.

Fields broke Michael Vick's single-game rushing record for a quarterback when he gained 178 rushing yards in Week 9.

The former Ohio State star followed that performance with 147 rushing yards and two touchdowns in a Week 10 loss to the Detroit Lions.

With 749 rushing yards this season, he is on pace to break Lamar Jackson's single-season record, which Jackson took from Vick in 2019.

After a rough start to his NFL career, Fields has scored 13 touchdowns in the last four games.

Hearing his Falcons admission could deepen a wound for fans who wish they had selected him over tight end Kyle Pitts with the No. 4 pick last season.

Fields won't get a chance to play Jones and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season, but he will face the Falcons at Mercedes-Benz Stadium this Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
