The Chicago Bears barely escaped Ohio with a victory Sunday afternoon against the Cleveland Browns. The game was a close 38-31 offensive point fest and the Bears overcame two early Jay Cutler interceptions to get the win. Cutler was reinstated as the starting quarterback even though Josh McCown’s performance in Cutler’s absence has reignited the fan base.
“I can only imagine the commentators and the fans back at home after the first and second pick, what they were saying,” Running Back Brandon Marshall said of Cutler’s early performance. “I’m sure they were ready to hang him.”
This week against the Eagles, the Bears hope to take away the one thing that makes them tick like a clock, running back LeSean McCoy, the NFL’s leading rusher with 1,343 yards thus far this season. In order to do that, the Bears are relying on OLB Lance Briggs to return from injury after being away seven weeks.
