Here are our game predictions from our on-air personalities, producers, writers and more. Tony Gill sits alone in first place at 7-2, with three others trailing him at 6-3.

Chris Emma (5-4): Rams 24, Bears 17

The Bears and Rams entered the season as favorites in the NFC. It has since been a challenging year for both, and Sunday night should determine their legitimacy. The Rams’ inconsistencies will be lesser than those of the Bears in a fun contest at the Coliseum.

Chris Tannehill (4-5): Rams 36, Bears 10

NBC is wondering why we're spending this night together. In a game that should've been flexed, the Bears need to decide whether they will live or die in L.A. The Rams played their worst game of the season against the Bears last year, and they barely lost. Bryan Witzmann won't be walking through that door.

Connor McKnight (4-5): Rams 21, Bears 10

I want for this to be a game in which the Bears defense shines and takes charge against such a bad and battered offensive line. It still could be ... but my faith in the offense is nonexistent. 

Dan McNeil (3-6): Rams 27, Bears 12

I’m enjoying all the Kool-Aid being sipped because the Rams are broken. So was Detroit.

Danny Parkins (6-3): Rams 21, Bears 20

**** it.

David Haugh (6-3): Bears 23, Rams 20
Based on instinct more than evidence, this just feels like a good chance for the Bears to put everything that has been missing together and show up ready for this primetime opportunity.
Herb Lawrence (3-6): Rams 24, Bears 23

I will be in Los Angeles this weekend to celebrate a friend’s bachelor party with a Bears loss, but we won’t care because of the great weather and adult beverages.

Jay Zawaski (4-5): Bears 20, Rams 13

The Rams offensive line is struggling, so I feel like this could be a game for the Bears pass rush to get right. If that happens, Jared Goff will turn the ball over multiple times. I’m predicting a defensive touchdown by the Bears.

Joe Ostrowski (2-7): Rams 16, Bears 9
If we get late word that another quarterback who’s opposing the Bears is out to set up a Mitchell Trubisky-Blake Bortles matchup, NBC executives will need a good shower cry. The Bears +7 isn’t a bad look, because they keep games close and the Rams’ injury report looks worse. However, the Los Angeles defense is allowing 10.7 points since the addition of Jalen Ramsey. Take all the unders.
Julie DiCaro (6-3): Rams 21, Bears 13

I’d love to pick the Bears because Sean McVay is incredibly annoying. But I’m going to need to see something much more impressive than overcoming a beat-up Lions team before I start believing in the Bears again. 

Nick Shepkowski (3-6): Bears 12, Rams 10

A matchup between two overhyped offensive frauds as head coaches goes the way of a defensive battle. Again.

Rick Camp (4-5): Rams 20, Bears 9

The Rams defense isn’t the Lions defense. It’s better. So the Bears offense is going to struggle yet again. The Rams have been hampered by offensive line injuries, but I can’t get the thought of Nick Kwiatkoski getting burned in coverage out of my head. The Rams will get in the end zone. The Bears won’t. 

Shane Riordan (4-5): Bears 6, Rams 3

“I don’t like L.A. There’s a reason I couldn’t wait to leave. But the best/worst/best again part of Hollywood is the nonstop parade of delusion you get to see … Right now there are a million people in Hollywood who are all going to make it.” — David Cross

Sounds like this kind of delusion is perfect for Trubisky. Just like the kid from your high school musical who played the understudy to “tree #2,” Trubisky is the theatrical reject not talented enough to play an inanimate object.


Tony Gill (7-2): Bears 20, Rams 17

Goff is a Trubisky who got paid, and I can’t stand for that.
