Bears vs. Browns: Full Roster Report Card Grades for Chicago
Matt Sullivan/Getty Images

While it came with its fair share of adversity, the Chicago Bears' 38-31 win over the Cleveland Browns improved the team's record to 8-6.

No one was perfect, especially not on offense, as the Bears surrendered two returns—one interception and one fumble—for touchdowns. They looked out of sync for most of the game, but once they started clicking, they were unstoppable.

The Bears offense finished with 440 yards and scored 31 points. 

Outside of a couple big gaffes, the Bears defense had one of its best games of the season. It gave up 366 yards, but only 17 points. It wasn't playing a great offense—Cleveland came into the game averaging just 19.8 points per game, 27th in the league—but it got stops when it needed to.

The Bears held Cleveland to 93 rushing yards, the lowest total an opponent has had against Chicago since New Orleans in Week 5.

Special teams also played a big role for the Bears. Devin Hester had a few good returns, Robbie Gould was perfect on all of his kicks, and the coverage units pinned the Browns back a number of times.

In the following slides, you'll find grades for each position. In doing these grades, I took the mistakes and the big plays into consideration. I also considered the opponent, as the Browns defense—especially its front seven—can be difficult to play against. 

Chicago had a lot of mistakes, well more than a team should be able to get away with. Despite that, it was able to come away with one of its most well-rounded wins of the season.
