The Cleveland Browns will host the Chicago Bears in Week 3 and in order to secure a victory, these under the radar stars will need to shine
Chicago will be featuring a new quarterback as Andy Dalton is out due to an injury which means former Ohio State star Justin Fields will make his debut in Cleveland. Entering the game, the Browns are favored but as we saw against Houston, there’s no reason to ever take a team lightly.
That means all hands must be on deck for this one, including these three under-the-radar players who need to shine in order to secure a win.
Cleveland Browns who need to shine No. 3: Jack Conklin, Right Tackle
In two games so far, Khalil Mack has just two tackles and a sack which isn’t the norm for him. He’s usually much more disruptive and there’s no denying that he’s going to completely wreck a gameplan here soon.
The Browns have to hope that doesn’t happen in this one and the player who will draw the primary assignment of blocking Mack is Jack Conklin — since the Bears No. 1 pass rusher typically lines up on that side of the line.
The good news is, Conklin has been a solid player since joining the Browns and is playing as well as just about any offensive tackle in the league right now. In order to get a win, Cleveland will need him to continue playing at such a pace.
