BROWNS vs. BEARS: overview, point spread, how to watch

Although the Browns won their first game last week, the defense left a lot to be desired, the outcome perhaps would have been very different if Houston Texans quarterback Tyrod Taylor hadn’t been injured. Speaking of injuries, Cleveland will be without Jarvis Landry for at least a few weeks after the Pro Bowl receiver sprains the MCL, and it also remains to be seen how Baker Mayfield will deal with a diseased left shoulder.

The good news? For the first time in nearly a year, Odell Beckham Jr. will take the field for the Browns. The double All-Pro only appeared in seven games last season after tearing the ACL and is expected to see plenty of action today with Landry absent.
