The Cleveland Browns will host the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Keep reading for the perfect blueprint for the Browns to win and move to 2-1.
At this point in the season, it’s hard to call a game must-win for the Cleveland Browns, but their Week 3 matchup vs. the Chicago Bears is one that they should win. It’s very difficult to win them all in the NFL, but you must win the ones you’re supposed to.
The Browns come into this game as a touchdown favorite, but this Bears defense is going to be difficult to move the ball on. On top of that, rookie quarterback Justin Fields will be making his debut with an injury to Andy Dalton.
Both teams are 1-1, and both teams will be hungry to get above 500. The Chicago Bears were blown out in Week 1 by the Las Angeles Rams and won a tight game last week vs. the Cincinnati Bengals. The Browns lost a heartbreaker in Week 1 to the Kansas City Chiefs and rebounded for a 10-point victory vs. the Houston Texans in Week 2.
Cleveland has shown signs of greatness on offense for a good portion of the first two games, but they still haven’t put a full game together. With it looking more and more likely that Odell Beckham will return, maybe this will be the breakout week.
The defense hasn’t looked great at all so far. The Chiefs (who are a tremendous offense), moved the ball at will, and the struggling Texans offense also had a good amount of success against them.
