Here are our 670 game predictions, with each individual’s Bears prognostication record this season in parentheses.

David Haugh (3-3): Bears 23, Rams 20
I believe the Bears defense has regained its swagger, with an overpowering pass rush, swarming linebackers and a suffocating secondary. I believe quarterback Nick Foles provides a presence that's hard to quantify, one every offense needs and especially appreciates on the road on Monday Night Football. I believe the Bears have developed resolve and resilience through every comeback and question about their legitimacy. I don’t believe Jared Goff and Sean McVay can find a way to beat this defense, so the Rams are in trouble.

Mike Mulligan (3-3): Rams 21, Bears 16
There are a couple matchup problems that could waylay the Bears’ momentum, specifically the Rams’ three-headed monster at running back and Aaron Donald’s status as a game-wrecker.

Danny Parkins (3-3): Bears 23, Rams 21
I don’t know why I’m feeling a Bears upset. A weird season gets weirder, as the Bears win on a Cairo Santos game-winning field goal.

Herb Lawrence (2-4): Rams 27, Bears 20
Whatever I put in this space, you should do the opposite. After flipping last week and coming up wrong again, I’m just flustered. I’m going to flip again and hope that the Bears continue to make my predictions wrong. Tails again, hence the final score above.

Chris Emma (4-2): Rams 24, Bears 23
The Bears face a real test against these Rams. This time, a close game doesn’t go their way.

Rick Camp (3-3): Rams 20, Bears 16
In a defensive-minded game, the Rams run the ball slightly better and get in the end zone one more time than the Bears.

Jay Zawaski (3-3): Bears 28, Rams 23
I never liked McVay. He’s too handsome, and the whole “Oh, he can remember every play he has ever called” parlor trick is dumb and useless. Go Bears.

Nick Shepkowski (5-1): Rams 14, Bears 13
This is a toss-up. I love the Bears getting five or six points in most places, but walking away with a win on the West Coast is rare for them, especially in prime time.
