Bears Beat Browns in Final Presason Game
CHICAGO (AP) -- Eric Mangini apparently didn't need another look at Brady Quinn or Derek Anderson. Cleveland's coach gave his quarterbacks a night off rather than one more audition.

Brett Ratliff started for the Browns and led a touchdown drive after a rough start against Chicago. Robbie Gould kicked two of his four field goals in the fourth quarter, though, leading the Bears past Cleveland 26-23 Thursday in the preseason-finale.

When Mangini said he wasn't sure who would start, many assumed it would be Quinn or Anderson. Well, not quite.

Ratliff got intercepted by Zackary Bowman on the game's first play from scrimmage, leading to a 43-yard field goal by Gould, but recovered to throw a touchdown on the next possession and was 8 of 20 overall.
