Chicago @ Cleveland
Current Records: Chicago 1-1; Cleveland 1-1
What to Know
The Chicago Bears will take on the Cleveland Browns at 1 p.m. ET next Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium. The Bears will be hoping to build upon the 20-3 win they picked up against Cleveland when they previously played in December of 2017.
It was a close one, but on Sunday Chicago sidestepped the Cincinnati Bengals for a 20-17 win. Having forecasted a close victory for Chicago, the oddsmakers were right on the money. No one had a standout game offensively for Chicago, but they got scores from a handful of players including SS Tashaun Gipson, WR Allen Robinson, and QB Andy Dalton. Dalton ended up with a passer rating of 154.60.
Chicago’s defense was the real showstopper, as it collected three interceptions and one fumble. Those interceptions were spread across their defensive unit.
Meanwhile, it was all tied up 14-14 at the half for the Browns and the Houston Texans on Sunday, but Cleveland stepped up in the second half for a 31-21 victory. Cleveland’s RB Nick Chubb was one of the most active players for the squad, punching in one rushing touchdown.
Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 1-1. The Chicago defense got after the quarterback against the Bengals to the tune of four sacks, so Cleveland’s offensive line better have put in some good practice this past week in preparation for the matchup.
