Chicago Bears Week 3 vs Browns: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
For fans of the Chicago Bears, the Week 4 matchup versus the Cleveland Browns couldn’t have ended any quicker. The clock mercifully winded down to all zeros for the Bears (1-2) as they fell in defeat to the Browns by the score of 26-6. This loss currently puts Chicago in second place in the NFC North, right behind the hated Green Bay Packers, who won this week.
The joy of having rookie quarterback Justin Fields in the starting lineup for the first time went away after seeing a lack of production by the offense for the entire game. The offensive line looked as if they were stuck in quicksand, and the overall play-calling was elementary, to say the least.
Even with the addition of Fields, there was absolutely no improvement from the offense from last week to this week. In fact, there was a major decline from this phase in Week 3.
From the looks of how this offense performed on Sunday, no one would have thought that this was the same unit that had a running back that tied for fifth in the NFL in rushing last season with 1,070 yards, or a wide receiver that caught over 100 balls for over 1,200 yards. It’s as if someone totally forgot that those players were even on the field.
After hearing all of this, it’s easy to predict where the offense may fall in this week’s edition of the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. But just for the fun of it, take a look and see just how the offense was looked upon, and find out what was actually good in this bitter defeat for the Chicago Bears.
