This will be the first time Mitchell Trubisky will face a team with a starting quarterback that was in his draft class. DeShone Kizer was selected by the Browns in the second round, and was the fourth quarterback taken in last year’s draft. Both Trubisky and Kizer have struggled as of late. Even though Trubisky did throw for 300-plus yards for the first time in his career in Week 15, he did throw three interceptions. As for Kizer, he’s thrown an interception in all but two of the 13 games that he has played in, and his 19 picks leads the league. The winner of this game may be determined by which rookie QB makes the fewer mistakes.
