Robert Napier (3-0)

The Bears are doing just about everything right these days and Jay Cutler has owned the Lions since coming here, and that was without the best coaching and protection. Forte and Hester are both due for big ones soon, what better time than now? This will be a real showdown and I really wish Urlacher could be here for this one so he could make Reggie Bush pay for taunting him in that NFC Championship game while Bush was with the Saints. Memories…

Bears 31 – Lions 20

Mike Flannery (3-0)

I think the Bears open up the offense in Detroit this week and let Cutler air it out for three passing touchdowns. The defense takes advantage of the Lions usual undisciplined play and forces 3 turnovers, one of which is returned for a score. Added up, the Bears coast to a surprisingly easy win in Detroit.

Bears 38 – Lions 17

Tooch (2-0)

The magic continues for Jay Cutler and the Bears as they take to the road and head to Detroit.  It won’t be pretty, but Matt Forte should put up big numbers against the Lions defense and it will be the Bears offense that wins the game.  Calvin Johnson will get his yards and touchdown(s), but it won’t be enough to keep Detroit in the ball game.  It’s a win for the Bears and a bigger cushion atop the NFC North.

Bears 24 – Lions 14

Heather Pink (2-0)

Any NFC North matchup is tough, but this year this rivalry is different. Two words: Reggie Bush. The Bears have never been good against the short dink-and-dumps or “Darren Sproles” type of guys, so Reggie poses a huge challenge. With that being said, I think he is their only problem. Tillman shutdown Megatron before, I don’t see that stopping him again. Cutler’s offense just keeps coming together, now it’s time for a solid offensive win.

Bears 24 – Lions 23

Boomer (2-1)

The Bears might be 3-0 but there are some concerns with the defense.  Henry Melton is on IR and Peanut Tillman is hobbled.  That’s not how you want to go into a matchup with Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson.  On the other side of the ball, Jay Cutler and the offense have been able to put up points and protect Marc Trestman’s precious ball.  This could set up to be a shootout.
