Christmas Eve will see the lowly Cleveland Browns, currently, the worst team in the NFL, come to Chicago. One thing the Bears cannot do is underestimate the Browns. There have been some games the Browns have been in and nearly won but the just haven’t been able to finish. The Browns do make a lot of mistakes however and the Bears cannot play down to them.

If the Browns come into this game not having won yet, the Bears will have some extra motivation not to be the team that Cleveland wins their first game against. The Bears can win this game if they play good mistake free football. Mistake free means curbing the penalties and not turning the ball over. If Chicago can keep this game tight, especially on offense, they will beat the Browns.

Cleveland has a lot of talent but just hasn’t been able to put everything together and get that talent to translate into victories. Look for this to be a close game especially after seeing how the Browns have handled some teams as of late. Chicago can’t allow them to finally find that “magic” that helps them win. The Bears must be tough.

I predict that Chicago will win this game, but it will be closer than some would expect. I think that they will do just enough on offense to win and that their defense will rise to the challenge and hold Cleveland back.
