Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield versus the Bears defense
In last week’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Bears dominated them with their defense that was picking off their quarterback and sending him to the ground all afternoon. As I reviewed the video of that game, I couldn’t be more concerned about the shoulder injury Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield sustained last week in the game against the Texans. If the Bears can get to Mayfield, as they did Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, then we might have problems Cleveland.
Last week, Mayfield only had the one interception, mostly due to the fact that Browns rookie wide receiver Anthony Schwartz stopped on his route and allowed the pick.
Mayfield only had one interception after Week 7 of last season. That’s impressive. Will he throw one in this game? If I were a betting man I’d probably say yes. The probability is in his favor to throw one and considering the Bears gobbled up three of them a week ago, I’d just expect one or two to occur for Mayfield.
Now, will Mayfield throw for 300 yards and two touchdowns? Yes, probably as well. The Browns offense is pushing the ball and scoring. They’ve got 31 and 29 points in their first two games. I’d expect much of the same against the Bears. Where their previous opponent, the AFC North cellar-dwellers could only manage 200 plus offensive yardage look for Mayfield and the Cleveland offense to be closer to that 400 offensive yardage marker.
