Bears Bruise Browns In The Snow

The Bears grind out a 20-3 win over the lowly Cleveland Browns.

CHICAGO - Snow came down on Soldier Field, and the Chicago Bears (5-10) helped the Cleveland Browns (0-15) move one step closer to becoming the only the second team in NFL history to finish 0-16.

The Bears grounded out a 20-3 win on Christmas Eve.

"The last home game of the 2017 season, our fans have been great," says Bears head coach John Fox. "We've had some great battles here at Soldier Field. Only on the winning side a couple times, a third time today, but it meant a lot to those guys in that locker room."

There was nothing fancy about the Bears fifth win of the season. Chicago only finished with 258 total of yards offense. Jordan Howard ran for a pair of touchdowns, but only gained 44 yards on 22 carries.

Howard now has nine rushing touchdowns on the year. Mitchell Trubisky ran for a touchdown of his own and threw for 193 yards against his hometown team. He was also sacked five times.

"To play in the snow on Christmas Eve against your hometown team it'd kind of a dream come true," says Trubisky. "It was a lot of fun. I enjoyed every moment and I soaked it in with all my teammates. It's just great to get a team win today."

The Bears defense shined against one of the worst offenses in the NFL. Browns rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer threw two interceptions on Sunday. Kizer leads the NFL with 21 interceptions. Browns wide receiver Rashard Higgins lost a fumble near the goal line that was recovered in the end zone by Danny Trevathan.

The Bears have won twice in the last three weeks. Chicago will cap-off their 2017 campaign in Minnesota against the NFC North champion Vikings.
