The Cleveland Browns are in Chicago to take on the Bears. Here is how you can watch or listen to tonight’s preseason game.

The Cleveland Browns close out the preseason tonight as they hit the road to take on the Chicago Bears.

The game will be the final opportunity for the coaching staff to see the players in action before the NFL-mandated roster cutdown on Saturday at 4 p.m.

On Thursday the Browns continued to clean out the mistakes of former general manager Ray Farmer by trading offensive tackle Cameron Erving to the Kansas City Chiefs. Fellow Farmer draft picks Nate Orchard and Xavier Cooper could soon be following Erving out the door.

The one key position that is not in question is that of starting quarterback, where rookie DeShone Kizer is the starter. How the position shakes out behind him, however, is still in flux and head coach Hue Jackson is still working out that particular puzzle, according to

"“I really haven’t made that decision. I know that I still want to see our guys keep playing. I think that is important to further evaluate them with critical reps, but I haven’t made a decision on where I am going to play DeShone and if DeShone is playing.”"

A good performance by quarterback Brock Osweiler could be enough to get another team interested in making a trade for the veteran. If Kevin Hogan can build off his success against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he may be able to wrestle the backup spot away from Cody Kessler.

Who would of believed that would be a talking point when training camp opened?
