It’s time for one final tune-up before the start of the regular season for the Cleveland Browns, and that will come on Saturday when they face the Chicago Bears at FirstEnergy Stadium.
The Browns are 1-1 in preseason, and while preseason records don’t matter when it comes to anything official, a win on Saturday would be a note. positive, especially since head coach Kevin Stefanski said his first stringers would play.
#Brunettes Kevin Stefanski said Jacoby Brissett and the starters will play Saturday. To be determined for how long they stay.

With quarterback Deshaun Watson’s suspension now set in stone at 11 games, QB2 Jacoby Brissett will have another chance to show what he can do under center while Watson is not cleared to play.
It will also be an opportunity for Brissett to develop greater chemistry with his new teammates, especially his receivers and offensive linemen.
For both teams, there will be a number of players battling it out for one of the last available spots.
There are three players in particular who could use a great game against Chicago to secure a spot on the final roster.
All teams in the league must reduce their rosters to their latest iteration of 53 players by Tuesday.
Saturday’s game will also be a reunion between Browns defensive end Myles Garrett and Chicago QB Justin Fields.
Last year, Cleveland hosted the Bears in Week 3 and outscored them, 26-6, as Garrett had 4.5 sacks, all on Fields.

After this game, the Browns will have 14 full days to rest, recover and prepare for Week 1 of the regular season, which takes place in North Carolina against the Carolina Panthers on September 11.
This contest will pit Cleveland against their former QB1 for the past four seasons, Baker Mayfield, who has now been named the starter in Carolina.
After someone in the Browns organization was quoted as saying the team would prefer an “adult” under center, Mayfield demanded a trade, and after months of speculation, he was eventually sent to the Panthers.
