Storylines to Watch

  • Joe Flacco as the new starting quarterback for the Browns — Following the Browns' 31-27 win over the Jaguars in Week 14, HC Kevin Stefanski named Joe Flacco as their new starting quarterback. Now, as the Browns face the Bears in Week 15, he will earn his third consecutive start at quarterback. Flacco's 16 years of experience in the NFL has allowed him to handle the last few weeks since signing with the Browns practice squad, to then being named the starting quarterback for the remainder of the season.
  • How the Browns use the passing game — The Bears have a stout run defense, as they have allowed just 1,088 total rushing yards this season, which is second in the league. They've also only given up seven rushing touchdowns this season, which is fourth in the league. However, the Bears have struggled to defend the passing game, as they have given up 3,001 passing yards this season — ranked 23rd in the league — and 24 passing touchdowns — 30th in the league. Flacco has showcased in his first two starts how he can throw the ball, especially against the Jaguars when he threw for 311 yards and three touchdowns. The Browns may need to turn to their passing game more frequently against the Bears.
  • How the Browns handle dual-threat QB Justin Fields — Sunday's matchup presents a unique challenge for the Browns defense, as they face another dual-threat quarterback in Justin Fields. He has the capability to affect each play either in the run game or the pass game. Through his nine games this season, Fields has completed 162 of 255 passes for 1,810 yards, 13 touchdowns and six interceptions. He has the ability to make a number of throws that the Browns pass defense has to be prepared for and cover well. Fields has also rushed for 458 yards on 89 carries and two rushing touchdowns, and can use his legs well to advance drives.
