The Chicago Bears (5-8, 4th NFC North) take to the road on Sunday to face the Cleveland Browns (8-5, 2nd AFC North), at Cleveland Browns Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio. Chicago defeated the Detroit Lions 28-13 last Sunday for their second straight victory and third win in the last four but are 13th out of 16 in the race for a playoff berth in the NFC with only the top seven qualifying.

Cleveland defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 31-27 last Sunday snapping a two-game losing streak and the Browns are currently 5th in the AFC race for a playoff berth. If the season ended today Cleveland would qualify as an AFC wildcard. Chicago will play without DE Yannick Ngakoue, while four others are questionable.

Cleveland’s list of injuries list too long to list here but a few of the notables that out include RB Nick Chubb, S Grant Delpit, DE Ogbo Okoronkwo, DT Maurice Hurst II, WR Michael Woods II, QB Deshawn Watson, OT Jack Conklin and others that are out or questionable.

Rating:
Although Cleveland has had several injuries to keep players on both sides of the line of scrimmage and is playing it’s fourth quarterback of the season, the Browns have been able to win eight of 13 games and much of that is thanks to a very strong defense that is first in the NFL against the pass and is 14th against the run. With four games remaining in the regular season, Cleveland has far more incentive in this matchup as they are two games behind first place in the AFC North and our 5th overall in the conference, while Chicago is 13th out of 16 in the NFC and close to being eliminated from postseason contention. Chicago lost its best pass rusher Yannick Ngakoue with a broken ankle and that will affect the Bears defense as they will not be able to pressure 38-year old Joe Flacco as well as if Ngakoue was on the field. Cleveland has covered the spread in four of its last six games and the Browns at home are 6-1 ATS over the last seven at Cleveland Stadium.

Prediction: Cleveland Browns -3
