Coach Boss (2-1)

The Lions are playing very well right now and they have this guy nicknamed Megatron (Calvin Johnson) who is pretty decent at the receiver position (he is crazy good); however, the Lions are coached by Jim Schwartz and have been consistently undisciplined throughout his tenure there. Jay Cutler has owned the Lions the past few years and I don’t see that changing now.

Bears 34 – Lions 23

Keith Schultz (2-1)

The Bears defense although scoring points is giving up huge chunks of yards which the Lions will exploit on Sunday afternoon.  The Trestman offense needs to open the playbook up more on Sunday in Detroit if they expect to leave the Motor City with a victory.  I think Trestman will chalk this loss up and learn from it down the road.

Lions 34 – Bears 21

Elijah Zelonky (2-1)

These two teams know each other very well by now, but the beloved Bears come into Detroit a different team. I think Jay Cutler will have a great game and the Lion’s offense will not be on the field as much as they would like to be. The defense will also have a fair share of takeaways

Bears 30 – Lions 17

GM Mouser (2-1)

This one is a tough one for me.  Playing on the road in a hostile environment typically leads to mistakes and turnovers and that will be a key in this game for the Bears.  The defense has been opportunistic, but has not applied pressure consistently with the D-Line.  If the Bears are who we think they are, the O-Line will contain the Lions pass rush and Cutler will open the offense up a little in the passing game.

Bears 31 – Lions 27

Bob Zalabak (1-0)

Charles Tillman will be just healthy enough to contain Calvin Johnson while the Bears offense will exploit an average at best Detroit secondary.  Look for Jay Cutler to continue to target Alshon Jeffery and for Alshon to break a big play against the aforementioned weak corners. The offensive line, particularly Kyle Long will put together their best game of the young season. Bears roll on in Motor City.

Bears 28 – Lions 21

Cameron Curtis (1-2)

Megatron gets his obligatory 100-200 yards, depending on how injured Charles Tillman actually is.  Both teams rack up a ton of yardage, but turnovers are the difference for the Bears in this one.

Bears 34 – Lions 24

Justin Mark (0-0)

The Bears have one the last 9 of 10 games against the Lions and that is before their offense was moving the ball like they do now. Charles Tillman has also done very well against Calvin Johnson. Look for the Bears to move the ball quickly and build a lead while forcing turnovers.

Bears 27 – Lions 17
