Cleveland Browns: 4 players to watch on the Bears in Week 3
The Cleveland Browns will host the Chicago Bears this Sunday at 1 pm from FirstEnergy Stadium and there will be certain players on the Chicago roster to watch out for.
The Cleveland Browns were able to fend off the pesky Texans in a 31-21 victory in Week 2. In order to earn a second consecutive victory in Week 3, they must be mindful of these four players on the Bears.
4. Wide Receiver Allen Robinson
Allen Robinson is not off to the best of starts to the 2021 season, but the Browns cannot afford to sleep on him this Sunday.
Robinson is a playmaking receiver who can really stretch the field and give defenses fits. While his eight receptions for 59 yards on the season are underwhelming, you still shouldn’t count this guy out.
In the Week 2 win against the Bengals, Robinson caught his first touchdown of the season, but that was one of his two receptions on the day. He was targeted twice in the end zone by rookie quarterback twice late in the game, but neither attempt resulted in a score.
Robinson is coming off a 2020 campaign where he caught a career-high 102 balls for 1,250 yards and six touchdowns. The former Jacksonville Jaguar has gone over the 1,000-yard plateau three different times in his career, so he is very capable of making big plays.
Whether it be Andy Dalton or Justin Fields under center on Sunday – more on that later – Cleveland must respect his game or they could wind up giving him his first huge performance of 2021.
