3 of 4

Keith: Upset Alert.. Chris Johnson with ease and Bears play flat in Dixie  Titans 28 Bears 14

Boomer: The Texans rumble into Soldier Field with a chance to clinch the AFC South in front of a national audience on Sunder Night Football.  Soldier Field is rocking as the Bears bottle up Arian Foster while Andre Johnson nurses another pulled hammy.  Or was it a groin?  Who cares? Bears 30-27

Tooch: Arian Foster will run all over the injured Bears defense en route to a big Texans’ victory. Texans 30-Bears 20

Deez: Arian Foster dominates Bears D, but Cutler has enough weapons to find a way to win.  Bears 29-28

Decon: By this point, this game will be hyped as a possible preview of the Super Bowl and the Bears fall short.  Texans 23 Bears 16

Jimmy: Another NFC South opponent. But this time, the Bear show up in this tightly contested contest. Cutler and Matt Schaub trade touchdown passes, combining for six total (three apiece). Under two minutes to play, Cutler’s third strike through the air finds Devin Hester for a 55-yard bomb. Bears 28, Texans 24

Bart: despite being home, the Bears struggle with containing the running/passing attack of the Texans.  The 4th Phase goes home disappointed anticipating a win as the Bears were favored. L

Keith: 2nd week in a row a running back delivers against the Bears, but Cutler to Alshon Jeffery late in the 4th seals the deal Bears 28 Texans 27

Week 11 @ San Francisco 49ers (Wins in BOLD)

Boomer: Heading west is a tall task and going to visit the NFC’s runner up from 2011 is that much tougher.  Vernon Davis blows up in the nationally televised affair while Lovie Smith refuses to acknowledge a slap-handshake from Niners head coach, former Bear Jim Harbaugh. Niners 19-17

Tooch: The losing ways continue for the Bears as the Niners’ defense suffocates them. 49ers 13-Bears 6

Deez: Harbaugh’s pre-game “strong kind of a slap, grab handshake” doesn’t phase Lovie, who throws a red flag in protest.  He loses and so do the Bears.  The offensive line takes a step back and Cutler pays for it.  49ers 13-9

Decon: After 2 straight losses, the doubters begin to whisper that the Bears might not have it, but the Bears rise to the challenge and drag the 49ers up and down Lombard Street.  Bears 34 49ers 16

Jimmy: The Bears are rolling of their thrilling victory of the Texans. Heading back to NFC play, they venture out west to face the Niners. Defense, defense and defense. Patrick Willis and Justin Smith hound upon Cutler and Forte, but Urlacher and Briggs have a feast of their own on Alex Smith and the Niners offense. Three turnovers on offense is too much to handle for Chicago: 49ers 10, Bears 3

Bart: Talk radio lights up with frustration as the Bears drop 2 in a row.  All the armchair quarterbacks start “fixing” the Bears by replacing certain people who had an off game.  Lovie’s job is back on the line and fans start to question whether or not the Bears can beat a playoff team. L

Keith: The Bears never play well in San Fransisco and this prime time game is another example.  Harbaugh gets the win versus his old team 49ers 24 Bears 20

Week 12 vs  Minnesota Vikings (Wins in BOLD)

Boomer: The Vikings?  Really?  The Bears almost forgot they were still in their division.  Left tackle Matt Kalill gives the Vikings something to build around, but there’s little else for the Vikes to look forward to as AP suffers a setback from his ACL tear and Christian Ponder proves to be a draft bust.  Bears 26-13

Tooch: The Bears rebound in convincing fashion against an Adrian Peterson-less Vikings team. Bears 31-Vikings 13

Deez: Cutler stays home and puts cold, leftover turkey on his wounds after his Beating on the Bay.  Campbell fills in seamlessly and Bears sink the lowly Vikings.  Bears 20-17

Decon: The league will still be waiting for Adrian Peterson to round into form and the Bears take full advantage.  Bears 26 Vikings 7

Jimmy: Another pick me up game is in store for the Bears, as they return home to face the Vikings. With Adrian Peterson sidelined with another injury, the Bears have no problem against a bleak Vikings offense. It’s another episode of the Cutler-to-Marshall show, connecting for two scores: Bears 24, Vikings 7

Bart: as talks swirl in Minnesota about moving to Los Angeles or London and whether or not their number 1, 2, or 3rd draft pick will want to play in London, the Bears re-establish themselves with a thorough beat-down of the Viqueens.  W

Keith: Nothing like the Vikings to roll in to town to make you feel better. Peterson runs for 125 but not near enough Bears 42 Vikings 14

Week 13 vs Seattle Seahawks (Wins in BOLD)

Boomer: There’s always that game that the Bears have no business losing, but they go ahead to lose anyway.  It seems like the Seahawks have the Bears’ number and in a tight NFC race, this one hurt.  Seahawks 17-14

Tooch: Russell Wilson’s strong performance won’t be enough as Michael Bush and Matt Forte combine for 220 rushing yards. Bears 23-Seahawks 16

Deez: Cutler is back and so is the offense.  Hester catches a TD and returns a punt for a TD, while Marshall passes 1,000 yards receiving for the season.  Bears 35-13

Decon: The height challenged QB for the Seahawks, Russell Wilson, can’t believe Julius Peppers is that tall, craps down his leg and bumbles and stumbles the game away.  Bears 30 Seahawks 9

Jimmy: The quarterback carousel continues to spin for the Seahawks, with Matt Flynn getting the nod. Another favorable matchup for Chicago’s defense. This week’s star is rookie Shea McClellin, who continues to provide a spark opposite of Peppers: Bears 20, Seahawks 10

Bart: Seattle struggles travelling across country and playing in the cold.  The Bears defense has back to back solid games as the murmurs quiet down for a couple of weeks.  W
