The Cleveland Browns are looking to pick up a win against the Chicago Bears to end the discussion of an 0-16 record in 2017.

It was one year ago when the Cleveland Browns last won a game. Oh, how slowly the time has passed.

This has been another painful Browns season, but the team can at least salvage something from the year by picking up a win today against the Chicago Bears. 1-15 is still terrible, but it is infinitely better than 0-16.

The Browns are relatively healthy today in what should be a low-scoring game at a snowy Solider Field.

Briean Boddy-Calhoun is the most notable name on this list, but Jamar Taylor is back today so the young corner’s absence shouldn’t have a massive effect on today’s game. The Bears already love to pound the run, so today’s weather will help that remain true.

The question today will be whether Hue Jackson will allow Isaiah Crowell to run the ball more than five times. Crowell voiced his displeasure this week, which resulted in Jackson saying some really dumb stuff. How does he still have a job?

The Browns are looking to give fans something to smile about this holiday season, but I don’t trust them. However, that doesn’t mean it isn’t a lovely Sunday afternoon to watch and talk Browns.

Be sure to comment on this post throughout today’s game to share your thoughts on what takes place this afternoon, which hopefully involves a bit more running than last Sunday.

Christmas Eve was a special day for the Browns in 2016. Will the magic return this year?
