The Chicago Bears depart from the shore of Lake Michigan and fly to another Great Lakes port, landing near Lake Erie to meet the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night in the final 2012 preseason game for both teams. Exhibition game 4 is scheduled to get started in Cleveland Browns Stadium at 7:30ET.
Chicago (2-1) appeared out of sync on offense even though they eventually beat the reigning Superbowl champ Giants 20-17 last Friday. New York led 17-7 at the half before the regulars gave way to the backups. Bears backup QB Jason Campbell did well in relief of Jay Cutler and expect him and Josh McCown to take all of the snaps against Cleveland. LB Brian Urlacher hopes to be ready for the regular season but will miss this one with a sore knee. Check the NFL Preseason Lines for Bears vs. Browns Game.
