The Chicago Bears head into Cleveland to take on the Browns as the preseason wraps up in Week 4.
Both teams haven’t had much success this preseason, as they are both winless at 0-3.
The Bears have announced that they will not play any starters in their final tuneup and it’s certainly the right choice for this team.
Health has been the biggest concern for them heading into this season, especially with QB Jay Cutler.
Cutler attempted 15 passes last game in the loss to Kansas City, as he has got all the reps he’s needed. He’ll get the rest and assurance that nothing will go wrong prior to the regular season opener.
The reps will go to Brian Hoyer, who will be the backup to Cutler this season. Based on the history of Jay Cutler, Hoyer may see some significant time due to an injury or struggles from the Bears starting QB.
RB Jeremy Langford got 6 carries in the Week 3 loss and will give way to Ka’Deem Carey here in the final tuneup. Carey has been announced as the backup, but the Bears will also use Jacquizz Rodgers some.
The Cleveland Browns have made some ominous moves this preseason with their cuts and just this past week decided to exchange punters with the Panthers.
P Andy Lee has been one of the most reliable pieces to this Browns team, which makes the move very questionable.
Here in the final tuneup after going 0-3, the Browns will use all their starters.
Head coach Hue Jackson has decided his team needs more playing time before the opener against the Eagles.
The Browns will focus with the defensive starters, who were picked apart by the Buccaneers last week. Cleveland allowed 285 yards through the air, which has always been an issue for them.
