The Chicago Bears host the Cleveland Browns in a rather meaningless game. Why should you tune in?

Admit it, you will be watching the Chicago Bears host the winless Cleveland Browns on Christmas Eve. We all will, it’s ok. At the end of the day, the Bears are what they are and you have to deal with them. However, there are still things to watch in this game. It is not like the players are going to take away absolutely nothing. So what should we be watching for from the Bears in this game that appears so meaningless from the outside perspective?

Mitchell Trubisky vs. DeShone Kizer

There have not really been any games this season where you walked away thinking that the Bears definitely had the better quarterback. Sunday is the day in which the Bears have to say that. The Bears passed on Kizer, who went later into the second round and instead traded up to pick number two for Trubisky.

In no way has Kizer has played well for the Browns this season. In fact, he has been benched multiple times, and Duke Johnson admitted that he believes that Kizer has already lost his confidence. It is a shame what Hue Jackson is doing to the rookie.

On the other side, it is not like Trubisky is lighting it up. Still, you can say with confidence that his future with Chicago feels brighter than the future of Kizer in Cleveland. On Sunday Trubisky needs to show us that and give us that confidence by burying a zero win team against a quarterback classmate.
