The Cleveland Browns host the Chicago Bears in a game that could feature a little more intrigue than we might have thought a week or two ago. Kickoff for Justin Fields’ first career start is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET on FOX at FirstEnergy Stadium.
The Bears have stubbornly stuck with Andy Dalton as their starting quarterback after drafting Fields, but the Red Rifle suffered a knee injury this past week and has been ruled out for the game. Bears head coach Matt Nagy insists Dalton will be the starter when he gets healthy, but for now we get a full game look at Fields. The Bears look to improve on their first win last week, a 20-17 victory in which they held off Cincinnati.
The Browns hope to get Odell Beckham Jr. back to reinforce a depleted receiver corps. He has missed the first two games while continuing rehab of his 2020 knee injury, but the situation has grown urgent with Jarvis Landry now sidelined with a sprained MCL. OBJ is a game-time decision as Cleveland looks to build on a 31-21 win over Houston last week.
