The Cleveland Browns will host the Chicago Bears on Saturday night in this NFC north vs AFC North preseason matchup. This will take place at the FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland. This will be the last pre season game for both clubs. 

Matt Eberflus takes over for a team looking to get back to the playoffs for the first time since 2020 in the Bears.

This is year 2 of the Justin Fields era as the team's #1 quarterback. Fields has only seen limited action thus far this preseason. Last game, Fields was on the field for one drive and led the Bears offense to a field goal. He went 5-for-7 for 39 yards

Chicago has a solid backup quarterback this season in the well-traveled Trevor Siemian. Siemian threw a touchdown in the week two blowout win over Seattle, helping the Bears improve to 2-0 on the preseason.

Last season the Chicago Bears averaged 307.4 yards on offense and 316.7 yards given up on defense. 

The Browns come into this game with a record of 1-1 in the preseason. The team won its opener, 24-20, against the Eagles.

DeShawn Watson has since been suspended for the first 11 games of the season, leaving the Browns to rely on veteran quarterback Jacoby Brissett for more than half the season. The Browns will spend a portion of Saturday's game preparing Jacoby Brissett for his role as the Browns' starting quarterback.

Last season the Cleveland Browns averaged 340.6 yards on offense and 311.5 yards given up on defense. 

The under is 30-13 in Bears last 43 games on grass and is 5-1 in Browns last 6 home games. The Favorite is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings and Home team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. 

The Bears are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games and are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Browns are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games. The Browns should get the win here as they are playing their regular season starter and are motivated to get him reps.
