The Bears (7-6) are tied for the division lead with the Lions (7-6), who host the Ravens Monday night. The Packers (6-6-1), who are a half-game back, visit the Cowboys Sunday. The Browns (4-9) have lost four straight and seven of eight and are in last place in the AFC North.

McCown was named NFC offensive player of the week for his performance in last Monday night's 45-28 win over the Cowboys. He became the first Bears player to account for five touchdowns in a game since 1972, passing for a career-high four scores and running for another. He also threw for 348 yards and posted a personal-best 141.9 passer rating.
The Bears offense features two 1,000-yard receivers and one 1,000-yard rusher for only the second time in franchise history.
They will face a Browns defense that ranks seventh in the NFL in total yards, fourth against the run and tied for eighth versus the pass. Cleveland is led by inside linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, cornerback Joe Haden and safety T.J. Ward.
On the other side of the ball, Browns receiver Josh Gordon leads the NFL with 1,400 yards even though he was suspended for the first two games of the season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Gordon has compiled 774 yards in his last four games, an NFL record.
Browns quarterback Jason Campbell, who spent last season with the Bears backing up Jay Cutler, will make his sixth start of the year Sunday against his former team. In last weekend's 27-26 loss in New England, Campbell completed 29 of 44 passes for a career-high 391 yards with three touchdowns, no interceptions and a 116.6 passer rating.
The Bears defense, which ranks last in the NFL against the run, will again play without linebacker
