The Chicago Bears are gearing up for a Week 3 clash against the Cleveland Browns, where they will seek their 10th straight win over an AFC opponent.
While Cleveland presents itself as a tough opponent, there are areas of weakness to exploit. And if Chicago can live up to offense, defense and special teams, maybe they could score a win.
We have already tried a few bold predictions. Now we are going more daring.
Here are five bolder predictions ahead of the Bears’ Week 3 game.
Surprising everyone at First Energy Stadium with his precision and quick decision-making, Fields makes Cleveland high school look pedestrian and uncertain due to the dual threat it possesses.
Eddie Goldman’s hopeful comeback prompts the Bears to a dominant performance by controlling the line of scrimmage defensively. Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt will find it tough against the middle of the line with sufficient support from the linebacker squad.
With the Bears focused on newly activated Odell Beckham Jr. – even with Jarvis Landry in the injured reserve – People’s Jones sneaks up over 100 yards and a score as he works constantly without the slot position.
This game turns into a full air assault with Baker Mayfield and Justin Fields each throwing over 300 yards. The two-sided running game wears off as both quarterbacks look to the air to move the football and ultimately come out on the winning side.
The fireworks display ends with the two teams tied at 31 points. It took a Cairo Santos field goal with less than five minutes to go for the Bears to escape with a 34-31 victory that made Justin Fields the win in his first NFL start.
