Predict the Score:



  • QB Josh McCown (2011-13) spent three seasons with the Bears. RB Shaun Draughn appeared in two games with the Bears last season. WR Josh Lenz was originally signed by Chicago as an undrafted free agent in 2013.

  • Special teams coordinator Chris Tabor was assistant special teams coach for the Bears from 2008-10. Bears quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains served as the quarterbacks coach in Cleveland last season.

  • The Browns will be wearing their white jerseys with brown pants:
  • These teams last met on December 15, 2013, with the Bears defeating the Browns 38-31. Led by two defensive touchdowns, the Browns took a 24-17 lead into the fourth quarter. Chicago ripped off three straight touchdowns in the fourth quarter, though, to take a 38-24 advantage. The Browns' leading rusher in the game was Edwin Baker, and the leading receiver was Chris Ogbonnaya, with Jason Campbell throwing to him. That was less than two years ago, folks.

  • We will have a game day thread up here at 6:30 PM ET, along with plenty of in-game and post-game analysis.
