Chicago Bears

At face value a Bengals-Browns matchup doesn’t look incredibly tantalizing, especially with the World Series as an alternative viewing option, but these AFC North primetime games often turn out to be interesting at the minimum.

Plus, whenever I watch Joe Burrow, I take advantage. It’s just a shame that we won’t see the Burrow-Chase deep connection tonight.
