Nov. 20 was a long day for Chicago sports teams.

In Georgia, the Chicago Bears (3-8) fell to the Atlanta Falcons (5-6) by a score of 24-21 on Nov. 20 as the Bears' dynamic starting quarterback, Justin Fields, sustained an injury to his left shoulder.

It was Chicago's fourth consecutive loss, although the Bears had a 17-7 lead at one point.

"I told the guys at the end of the game, offense, defense, kicking, we had to play complementary football in the fourth quarter," Bears coach Matt Eberflus said, according to a statement. "And we have to do that to be able to seal these games. But love the way the guys fought. They battled; we were in it at the very end. We just gotta execute better at the end."

Fields injured his left shoulder on the first play of the final drive, as he landed on it while running out of bounds on the one-yard gain, but remained in the game. The second-year pro also said he was dealing with cramping in his hamstrings throughout the game.

The Bears' next game is Sunday, Nov. 27, when they visit the New York Jets.

—The Chicago Blackhawks (6-9-3) fell to the Pittsburgh Penguins (9-7-3) by a score of 5-3 at the United Center in NHL action.

Before the game, hockey great and former Blackhawk Marian Hossa was honored by having his jersey retired.

Chicago tied the game late in the third to push for a comeback at 3-3; however, the team failed after Pittsburgh scored two goals to secure a 5-3 lead.

The Blackhawks will travel down south to take on the Dallas Stars for a 7:30 p.m. scheduled puck drop on Wed., Nov. 23.

—The Northwestern University women's field hockey team made it back to the national championship game this year after winning it all last year.

Unfortunately, NU came up short against North Carolina on Nov. 20, falling 2-1 in Storrs, Connecticut, the Daily Northwestern reported.

The publication stated that the Wildcats (20-5) looked outmatched for much of the game, failing to record a shot on goal until the waning minutes of the final period. The Cats played from behind in the first half, as the Tar Heels took five shots in the first quarter and tallied two penalty corner attempts.

Before last season, NU's last Final Four appearance came in 1994. This season also marked consecutive finals appearances for the first time in program history.

—Henry Coleman III scored 13 points and Julius Marble scored 11 points as the No. 24-ranked Texas A&M beat Loyola Chicago 67-51 in the Myrtle Beach Invitational, ESPN noted.

The Ramblers (2-3) suffered a three-game losing streak at the invitational by getting beat 85-66 by Tulsa and 70-48 by Boise State. The Aggies (3-2) lost two of three at the tournament, opening with an 88-79 loss against Murray State before getting routed by Colorado 103-75.
