Week 9: Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers (MNF)

The Bears have to wait until Monday Night Football coming off their BYE week to square off with their hated rival to the North.  Aaron Rodgers carved up Lovie Smith’s defense like no other but I think Mel Tucker will have a few wrinkles in store for the Cheeseheads and Cutler and the Bears offense find a way to surprise Clay Matthews and the Packers D.  Bears start the Marc Trestman era of the Bears Packers rivalry in fine fashion.

Bears 26  - Packers 24

Week 10: Detroit Lions vs Chicago Bears

The Bears will bounce back after a tough road loss to the Lions in Week 4.  Besides, the Bears always win at home in this series.

Bears 34 – Lions 24

Week 11: Baltimore Ravens vs Chicago Bears

The reigning Super Bowl Champions bring the Lombardi Trophy tour through Soldier Field. Like the Bears, they’ll be taking the field without their team leader, although Ray Lewis’ departure went a heck of a lot differently than Urlacher’s parting with the Bears.  The Ravens defense has a harder time adjusting to life without Lewis than the Bears do without Urlacher and stun the world champs.

Bears 24 – Ravens 20

Week 12: Chicago Bears @ St. Louis Rams

The Rams have a solid defense and quarterback to build around but they’ll have a tough time competing in the challenging NFC West.  Expect a TON of Bears fans to invade St Louis for this one and the Bears do not disappoint their road-weary fans.

Bears 26 – Rams 16

Week 13: Chicago Bears @ Minnesota Vikings

In a Week 2 rematch, the Bears will have a tough time in their last trip to the Metrodome.

Vikings 21 – Bears 17

Week 14: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears (MNF)

Tony Romo got PAID in the offseason, opening the door for other middling, underachieving quarterbacks to seek $100+ million dollar deals.  The Bears will face the Cowboys for the third time in the last four seasons, with the last two being wins on the road in Big D on Monday Night Football.  Will the Cowboys exact their revenge at Soldier Field?  Look for  Joe DeCamillis special teams play against his former team to be the difference.

Bears 24 – Cowboys 20

Week 15: Chicago Bears @ Cleveland Browns

This Browns team has some young pieces and could be a surprise team in 2013.  But then again, the Bears catch a break, since by this time in the season, the Browns will have faded back to fourth in the AFC North.  Trent Richardson will be sidelined and Cutler and the Bears will abuse the Browns secondary.

Bears 28 – Browns 13

Week 16: Chicago Bears @ Philadelphia Eagles

The Bears head to Philadelphia just in time to watch Eagles fans throw snowballs at Santa Claus.  Chip Kelly and the Eagles make strides, but they’re still a team in rebuilding mode but the Bears struggle in the hostile Lincoln Financial Field.

Eagles 27 – Bears 20

Week 17: Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears

The Bears need to do something to bounce back in this series.  It’s not much of a rivalry when one team dominates the win column.  When Lovie Smith was hired, he made beating the Packers a priority and early on in his tenure, it worked, but the Bears’ record vs the Packers is just 31-16 since 1990.  Could this one be for the NFC North or will the Packers be resting their starters?  The Bears shock the Packers at home.

Bears 29 – Packer 28

By my count, that gets the Bears t0 10 wins yet again but will that be enough to get them to the playoffs?  Am I being overly optimistic?  Do you really think they can sweep the Packers?  What is the toughest stretch of games?  Am I drunk on Bears Kool Aide and which prediction is the most absurd?  These absurdly early predictions need your comments.

    Lions and Bears have been about as back and forth as Bears and Packers… it may seem competitive, but the truth is that there Bears were not a throat crushing team under Lovie. He’d let you crush your own throat, but he wouldn’t do it for you and this allowed sidearm Matt to get back in the game last year, but they really were never in it.

  • Daniel Lawson

    I keep on questioning your reasoning… just doesn’t seem sane… lose to crappy Eagles, but beat GB twice? Lose to RG3? This defense is mostly in tact so I don’t see how you have all these high scoring game especially against passing only teams and A Rog has had his worst games vs Chicago as well as a couple of good ones.

      It’s always tough to win on the road which is why I have them losing a couple of road games to NFC East opponents in tough venues. In 2010 the Bears lost back-to-back home games to the crappy Redskins and Seahawks, so don’t discount them losing games they’re not supposed to lose. Even last season, they needed late game heroics from Tim Jennings and Robbie Gould to get past the struggling Carolina Panthers. Not sure how I got them past the Packers except that subconsciously I can’t pick GB. This is all admittedly absurd, as noted in the title of the post.

    I’d like to see all these points added up and compared to recent years point totals. Seems high, only 2 games under 20 that I noticed scrolling through. Offense won’t be that improved that quickly?

    • BearGogglesOn

      I always overshoot on points when I do my predictions, for both the Bears and their opponents. Call me an optimist.

    I think you are on the right track with the Bears scoring…the OL improvements and the addition of M Bennett have an immediate and positive effect on the offensive point production. I seriously look for the Bears to avg 28.5 to 34.5 ppg on offense. And if Hester can revert to his former style of PKR’s and Tillman and Jennings play as they did last year…the D/ST could easily add from 7 to 9 ppg to the overall scoring per game by this team…so for me it would be very feasible to see the Bears avg 35 to 37 points per game.
