Sizing Up Chicago Bears Chances to Win NFC North
5 of 5
Detroit Lions (3-5)
The Lions are pretty inconsistent and hard to predict. They’re 3-5 so far this season, but in those three wins, they’ve beaten the Dolphins, Patriots and Packers, all three teams the Bears lost to while they’ve dropped games to the Jets and 49ers. Go figure.
I think the Lions will split with the Bears, getting the Thanksgiving game with a quick turnaround. I expect them to lose to the Panthers and Rams while picking up wins against the Cardinals and Bills. To cap off the season, I expect they drop the final two games against the Vikings and Packers.
