Here are our game predictions from our on-air personalities, producers, writers and more. Danny Parkins and Tony Gill are tied for the lead at 9-3, with David Haugh trailing one game back at 8-4. (After deliberation that lasted perhaps two seconds, we ruled to allow Gill to continue making picks despite him recently leaving 670 for a new job. Parkins will have to earn his bragging rights.)
The Bears have been viewed as "in the hunt" as of late. They’re "in the hunt" in the same way that I’m "in the hunt" for a new Bugatti. Or how I’m "in the hunt" to have dinner with Julissa Bermudez. If a few things fall my way, I could wind up with a T206 Honus Wagner card. With Akiem Hicks on the shelf for one more week, the Bears will have no answer for Zeke Elliott and the Cowboys’ balanced attack.
This is the Cowboys’ get-right game. Everything is going wrong for Dallas, and it won’t matter.
Some of the Cowboys’ biggest strengths are the Bears’ biggest weaknesses. I think Elliott has a huge game.
Believe it or not, there’s more dysfunction with the Cowboys than the Bears.
As I have said in this space previously, when teams are evenly matchup, I look to the quarterback to break the tie. Dak Presecott >>> Mitchell Trubisky.
I have a sinking feeling all the goodwill that the Bears and Trubisky built up recently will be erased Thursday night.
Here’s the deal: I keep picking the Bears to lose and the beloved keep winning to put off the pain. If you’re into the point spread, the Bears own the NFL’s worst against-the-spread record.
The Chicago offense looked better last week — but probably isn’t good enough to beat a reeling Dallas team.
This is based more on the Cowboys’ self-destruction than anything positive about the Bears, but hey, they’ll take it however they can get it at this point. The playoff dream lives on! (Until next week, anyway.)
The Bears will have issues with an opponent that’s a step up in class in the trenches. Trubisky won’t have the time to diagnose plays that he has enjoyed the last couple weeks, and the silly talk of a Bears playoff run will end at home.
Jerry Jones literally looks like a dead man. Not, like figuratively in the sense that he’s got "nothing left" but more so like an actual deceased person. No longer living. Sans breath. And frankly, a dead man leading a football team doesn’t sound particularly ideal. For lots of reason. I don’t know. What do you want from me? I’ve committed to the bit of not using a piece of football reasoning to make these picks all year. I’m out of options, and I’m really not that funny in the first place.
All false hope must die at some point. Thursday is that day for the Bears.
