4. A lot of Bears fans aren’t as familiar with the Ravens as other opponents since we don’t get to play you nearly as often.  Give me an under-the-radar player on each side of the ball that Bears fans may not know yet, but will make a big contribution on Sunday.

Matt Judon is going to be the next Terrell Suggs. I’m a Ravens guy, you know we’re starting with defense. Judon is a second year player out of Grand Valley State. Judon consistently wins battles off the edge. He doesn’t have a sack this season, but he’s been close and he’s created a lot of good plays for the Ravens.

Offensively, watch out for Alex Collins. I don’t know how familiar the NFL is with him yet. He got a shot with the Seahawks and then ended up on the Ravens practice squad. Since bringing him on board, the Ravens rushing game has been more explosive. I’ll give you one more to. Center, Ryan Jensen is playing really well. The Ravens offensive line has a lot that isn’t going for it. Jensen is taking care of business in the middle of the Ravens offensive line. He is a big reason why the Ravens run game is working too.

5. It’s prediction time!  Give me a brief synopsis of the game and include a final score.

The Ravens offense runs for over 100 yards and Flacco does enough to win the game. The defense rattles Trubisky and creates a couple turnovers. The Ravens win 17-0 in a game that won’t go down as an instant classic. That’s kind of how the Ravens win. It may not be pretty but it should be dominant this Sunday.
