Bears finish preseason undefeated
The Bears beat the Browns, 21-20, Saturday night in Cleveland.
- It's the Bears' first undefeated preseason since 1994.
Why it matters: Players, including Justin Fields, were auditioning for the new coaching staff for regular season roster spots.
- The second-year quarterback played deep into the first half, throwing for three touchdowns.
What's more: The Bears defense kept the Browns' starters out of the end zone.
- There were great efforts from rookie cornerback Kyler Gordon and new defensive tackle Justin Jones.
- And that was with over 20 players on the injury report, including several projected starters, such as Roquan Smith and Eddie Jackson.
Yes, but: The backups, including QB Trevor Siemian, struggled.
What's next: The Bears' roster must be cut to 53 players by 3pm tomorrow.
