Mike Praser (3-0)
The Bears are going on the road for the second week in a row to take on the division rival Detroit Lions. I know the Lions are a tough opponent, especially at home but Jay Cutler has owned the Lions in his career with the Bears. With Marc Trestman running the Bears offense, I think the Bears have the edge to win the game.
Bears 31 – Lions 17
Well, the Bears record is the same as mine so far. Alas, all things must come to an end and when we forecasted all of the Bears at the beginning of the season, this was where I picked the Bears to take their first stumble, so I will be true to that. Of course, I sincerely hope I am wrong, but the Lions offense is really clicking and the Bears had a little problem with a little Steelers WR in Antonio Brown, so they will be hard pressed to hold Megatron down, especially if Peanut’s groin isn’t quite up to snuff. The Bears record gets a blemish, but the DeCon remains perfect! That said, I am happy for the opposite to be true! Bear Down!
Lions 27 - Bears 17
Sure, the Lions are a talented team and they’ve been that way for the past couple season. Talent isn’t everything. Teamwork is and the Lions have too many loose cannons to ever be successful under Jim Schwartz. The Bears are as talented on both sides of the ball and are a well coached and disciplined team. Penalties will play a big factor in the game and the Lions are third in the league with 27 penalties, while the Bears have the third fewest (11).
