Here are our 670 game predictions, with each individual’s Bears prognostication record this season in parentheses.
David Haugh (5-5): Packers 30, Bears 20
Tweaks to the offensive line and the return of Mitchell Trubisky might help the Bears move the chains but not enough to overcome the presence of Aaron Rodgers. Truth is, who plays quarterback for the Bears doesn’t matter with so many other deficiencies. A banged-up defense only increases the challenge. The Bears will close out a November nobody wants to remember with their fifth straight loss.
Mike Mulligan (6-4): Packers 27, Bears 17
Changes on offense, be it reinforcements on the line or Trubisky back under center or David Montgomery healthy, will undoubtedly help the Bears. But the defense takes a step back without Akiem Hicks.
Danny Parkins (6-4): Packers 31, Bears 14
The Packers are going to win, probably by a lot. There’s no reason to believe the bye week and a change back to Trubisky is going to be enough to fix the Bears’ broken offense. Apologize to your friends outside Chicago in advance that they’re going to be subjected to this team yet again on national television. They’ll appreciate it.
Herb Lawrence (3-7): Bears 20, Packers 13
Heads again, MVP Mitch! Fade me.
Chris Emma (7-3): Packers 27, Bears 20
Trubisky’s return will bring the Bears a spark offensively, but it won’t be enough to beat Rodgers and the Packers.
Rick Camp (7-3): Packers 27, Bears 13
The Bears offense could look a lot better and still not be close to enough, so here comes a familiar result.
Jay Zawaski (5-5): Bears 31, Packers 28
Yeah, I said it. I’m not sure I believe it, but what do I have to lose? Maybe the Bears rally behind Trubisky. Maybe the defense has had enough and wills the team to victory with a pick-six at some point. Maybe the ghost of Walter Payton hoists Bilal Nichols to block a game-tying field goal. I don’t know. I’m just trying to speak it into existence. BEARSSSSS.
Nick Shepkowski (8-2): Packers 24, Bears 9
Does the Bears offense go another week without finding the end zone? I’m not liking their chances of finding it. The scoreboard might be semi-close, but the game won’t feel that way.
