Justin Fields versus the Cleveland Browns defense
Much has been made these last two weeks about the Browns defense and if it can stand the test of time? The jury is still out. After blowing a lead in Kansas City two weeks ago the defense seemed, at times, still confused as they hung on against the Houston Texans last week.
Now, enters the Chicago Bears and more importantly a mobile quarterback in rookie Justin Fields. This matchup though reeks of an upset and helping Fields establish him as a legit NFL star. Come on, can’t you sense that?
In two games the Browns have faced two mobile quarterbacks in Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Houston Texans quarterback Tyrod Taylor. In both games, the Cleveland defense struggled to get to the quarterback and allowed the quarterback to move freely in the pocket and keep the Browns secondary in flux.
To the Browns advantage should be that Bears rookie quarterback Fields isn’t a savvy veteran. You’d think that would be the difference, but I don’t have enough trust in defensive coordinator Joe Woods.
I’m definitely worried about Fields running wild Sunday. I believe Fields is the real deal and what better place to start that chatter than by beating the Browns in Cleveland.
In the game against the Bengals, Field secured victory for his hometown Bears by scampering for a first down late in the game.
I’m hoping that Garrett and other Browns defensive end Jadeveon Clowney can get to Fields and provide that much-needed boost to get the Browns that victory.
