The Chicago Bears are hanging by a thread in the 2013 NFL playoff race, and need a win this afternoon to stay in the hunt. Their opponent: a 4-9 Cleveland Browns team who has lost four straight games, and who will be without their starting running back, Willis McGahee, due to a concussion.
Seems simple enough, right?
Jay Cutler is back for Chicago, after spending the last few weeks on the sideline with a high ankle sprain, and will rejoin three play-makers who each have already gone over 1,000 yards for the season: Matt Forte (1,073), Alshon Jeffery (1,193), and Brandon Marshall (1,090).
