Here are our game predictions from our on-air personalities, producers, writers and more. One week in, it's Tony Gill leading the rest of the pack at 1-0, as he was the only one to pick the Packers to upset the Bears.

Chris Emma (0-1): Bears 17, Broncos 6

At mile-high altitude, I’m expecting a low-scoring game. The Bears will break through with a pair of touchdowns on offense and take this one over Vic Fangio and the Broncos.

Chris Tannehill (0-1): Broncos 13, Bears 7

After the most trying week of the Matt Nagy era, it will actually get worse for the Bears when they fall to 0-2. All we will have to look forward to is Theo Epstein's end-of-the-season press conference .

Connor McKnight (0-1): Bears 17, Broncos 10

The Broncos offense showed absolutely nothing good in their opener. The Bears defense must be better than the Raiders'. As long as Mitchell Trubisky doesn’t turn the ball over, the Bears avoid an utter disaster.

Dan McNeil (0-1): Broncos 19, Bears 17

And then I won’t talk about it again after Tuesday. #MitchIsFragile

Danny Parkins (0-1): Bears 20, Broncos 10

I’m not ready to pick the Bears to lose against a team they’re clearly more talented than ... yet.

David Haugh (0-1): Bears 24, Broncos 13
As sophisticated as Vic Fangio’s defensive schemes will be, the Bears will show better balance and mix in the run to set up an effective play-action passing game. Defensively, expect the Bears to dominate.
Herb Lawrence (0-1): Bears 17, Broncos 3

After an embarrassing showing by Matt Nagy the Bears offense in the opener, I’m hesitant to pick the Beloved up in the thin air of Colorado. (BTW, gorgeous, Denver, the Sunshine State.) But the Broncos offense doesn’t scare me this week, so I’m taking the Bears.

Jay Zawaski (0-1): Bears 16, Broncos 10

Even though the Broncos at home scare me a little, I believe the entire Bears team — from the general manager down to the backup long snapper — took the loss to the Packers as a wakeup call. The Bears will get a pair of rushing touchdowns and a field goal, but Eddy Pineiro will miss an extra point just to keep our nerves on edge for another week ... or month ... or year ... or lifetime.

Joe Ostrowski (0-1): Broncos 17, Bears 16
Why can’t I just pick the under? Hey, did you know the Broncos are really good at home? And that the head coaches know each other really, really well? Play this already so we can all move on with our lives.
Julie DiCaro (0-1): Bears 24, Broncos 17

The optimism of last week that surrounded the Bears is bruised — but not broken. Vic Fangio couldn’t figure out how to beat Jon Gruden in Week 1, and Matt Nagy’s play-calling can’t be any worse than last week.

Nick Shepkowski (0-1): Bears 8, Broncos 7

No, Matt Nagy doesn’t go for a two-point conversion in this one. It’s a pair of field goals and a safety that’s just enough for a Bears victory as the defense again allows just one touchdown. 

Rick Camp (0-1): Bears 20, Broncos 13

The Bears are the better team, but the Broncos' early season success at home historically and the Fangio factor are hard to ignore. The Bears' pass rush will benefit from a stationary Joe Flacco and right tackle Ja'Wuan James being sidelined for the Broncos, which will set the offense up to do just enough to get a win in the altitude.

Shane Riordan (0-1): Bears 24, Broncos 9

I’m going to be in Denver on Monday, the day after the Bears face the Broncos in Week 2. And for no football-related reasoning whatsoever, the Bears win solely because I don’t think they’re rude enough to not let me enjoy my vacation.

Tony Gill (1-0): Bears 17, Broncos 13

Joe Flacco sucks.
