“Matt Nagy does not want to commit publicly to starting Justin Fields for good, insisting that Andy Dalton is the team's starter when healthy. These are the press conferences of a team acting from a position of fear, which is a rough place to be in Week 3. Nagy knows his offensive line isn't ready. Moving the ball will be a challenge no matter who's at quarterback, and a prideful, professional defense isn't enough against an offense like Cleveland's. ”...

“Fields will rush for two touchdowns. He is still a work-in-progress in the passing game, but there is no denying his ability to run with the football. Don't be surprised if Fields also finishes with close to 100 rushing yards in his NFL regular-season starting debut.”...

“Seven and a half?? Don't get me wrong, it's totally possible, but the Bears are surprisingly deep at DL versus a CLE team that pushes their whole offense through the running game -- I think it could be surprisingly close.”...

“The Browns are playing teams close, taking the Chiefs down to the wire and going into halftime tied against the Texas. The Bears' defense showed they can still be elite in Week 2, and the Browns might be without their top two receiving options. Expect the Bears to keep it close, and maybe come up short of a comeback thanks to a dropped pass or long field goal miss.”...

“How will Bears rookie QB Justin Fields perform in his first career start? Chicago's future at quarterback has arrived, as the former Ohio State star returns to the Buckeye State. He is the Bears' 36th different starting quarterback since 1989 -- the second most in the NFL over that span behind the Browns (37)”...
