Here are our 670 game predictions.

David Haugh (1-0): Bears 30, Giants 21
The Giants not only exposed their flaws on Monday Night Football, but their shortened week gives the Bears another advantage over a team they should dominate up front. Matt Nagy needs another commitment to balance, and Mitchell Trubisky must avoid the disastrous start. Defensively, expect the Bears to rattle Daniel Jones, a turnover machine.

Mike Mulligan (1-0): Bears 22, Giants 16
All we hear about is the quarterback and the offense, but what happened to the Bears defense? Can the pass rush get healthy? Can the run defense stop Giants running back Saquon Barkley as well as the Steelers did? The NFL schedule-makers have done their part, so it’s time to see it from the Bears.

Danny Parkins (0-1): Bears 27, Giants 10
The Giants offensive line was putrid in Week 1, and they have to travel on a short week. The Bears defense gets four-plus sacks and a score of their own.
Allen Robinson also gets in the end zone and does some sort of “pay me” gesture.

Herb Lawrence (1-0): Bears 24, Giants 17
The Giants will have an emphasis on the running game after Barkley carried 15 times for just six yards in a loss to the Steelers in their opener. This is bad news for the Bears because they gave up 93 yards on 14 carries to the 104-year-old Adrian Peterson in Detroit last week. The good news for the Bears is the Giants’ secondary is just as bad as the Lions’ and they're also going up against a Bill Belichick disciple again.

Chris Emma (1-0): Bears 24, Giants 7
After an inconsistent performance in their opener, the Bears get a gift with the Giants coming to town. Look for all three phases to be better for the Bears come Sunday.

Rick Camp (0-1): Bears 21, Giants 20
Which version of these teams from Week 1 will we see? I’m not sure and they probably aren’t either, but this game will be closer than Bears fans would like.

Jay Zawaski (1-0): Bears 24, Giants 13
The Giants offensive line is … offensive. See what I did there? The Bears get multiple sacks, force a couple turnovers and cruise to victory.

Nick Shepkowski (1-0): Bears 52, Giants 10
Bears are back, baby. The Giants secondary sucks, and Robinson is going to play like his hair is on fire and have a massive day.

Shane Riordan (1-0): Bears 28, Giants 24
Bears win big, and I'm using the same justification I used last season -- AIR CAN'T BE HEALTHY IF YOU STORE ALL OF YOUR GARBAGE ON THE SIDEWALK. The city of New York is a disgrace.
