The Cleveland Browns face the Bears in Week 3 and here are 3 matchups to watch for this Sunday, including watching Justin Fields for the first time.
Are the Cleveland Browns the center of the universe? It seems on some days that they are. This week we’ve been debating the Browns defensive coordinator Joe Woods and if he’s on the hot seat?
We’ve also been enthralled in conversation on if Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. would be starting for the first time on Sunday against the Chicago Bears after being away from the field for almost a year. And we’re only two weeks into the NFL season. What could possibly happen over the next 15 weeks?
So the Browns having the Chicago Bears coming to First Energy Stadium to battle it out to see who can get a bit more momentum moving forward. Both teams are 1-1. Both teams won last Sunday. The Browns had a somewhat close game against the Houston Texans but prevailed 31-21 in Cleveland’s home opener. The Bears pretty much dominated the Cincinnati Bengals for most of their game and ended up hanging on 20-17.
This week, we’re adding more intrigue to the matchup as the Bears plan on starting rookie quarterback sensation Justin Fields and former Ohio State Buckeye. The Browns plan on the return of Beckham and that’s taking up a lot of the chatter in the last week.
What could obviously go wrong? You know after this game folks will be talking for weeks. With the debate in Cleveland this week, amongst fans, was centered on defensive coordinator Woods and if he knows what he’s doing? So, it’s a bit of a mystery of how Fields and the Bears will do against the Browns Sunday.
If Chicago sacks the quarterback five times and intercepts him three times, as they did against the Bengals, then the Browns could be in for a fight. For Cleveland to prevail Sunday, some of those star athletes on both sides of the ball, from defensive end Myles Garrett to offensive stars like running back Nick Chubb need to deliver.
