I want the Bears to win this one so bad. And I know that I said I think the Bears win out in another thread...but that's not the prediction thread.

I think this is going to be similar to the Cowboys/Saints game. A weird low(ish) scoring affair.

UGH! So many people on this forum saying that we can win out. Go 12-4. The only way that happens is if we get past the Rams. Which is a TALL ask. I heard a stat today though that said that Goff's passer rating is 30 points lower on the road.

This game is going to come down to how badly the defense wants to make up for last week. My guess is it will be a lot. The Rams OL is mediocre at best. The goal will be same as it was with Barkley. DON'T LET GURLEY BEAT US. If they can do that, we have a really good chance. Ultimately I think we lose this game. We're just not ready to beat a team like the Rams yet.

Biscuits plays and has a good game, distributing the ball all over the field. Robinson and Miller have big days. But in the second half, as per usual, we abandon the run, and try and out pass the Rams. That will be our undoing.

Rams - 34

If this was on the road, I'd predict a Bears loss, but it's not. It's at home, and the Bears, for all their flaws, have shown they don't mess around at Soldier Field in 2018.

IF we can keep Gurley under check we can win. If not, we only win if Trubisky/Daniel can outplay Goff.

Yeah. No.

I don't trust our run defense to stop Gurley and the play action off that is going to kill us. Trubisky comes back from a 2 week hiatus and we've got Bryan Witzmann going up against Donald and/or Suh? HAH! We're already one dimensional with being unable to run the ball, what's going to happen when everyone and their mother knows Trubisky is going to throw? How many WR screens and quick hitters will it take before one is picked off and taken to the house?

Nah... I'm not buying it.

Rams - 34
Bears - 17


As always when I predict losses: I hope to God I'm wrong!

Bears are a good team. I think right now, the Rams are better.

Donald scares the shit out of me and I just don't think our interior guys are up to task at this time. For some fucking reason I think Suh will finally show up this game. I hope not because I hate the fucker.

I think the D gets got a couple of times in some blitzes and gets burned. I think Trubs tries to do too much and first game back in awhile, he has some minor struggles.

Rams win

Rams - 27

Bears - 17

Running game still suffers.

The bears have kept some very good running backs in check. A few over time games have padded some stats. I feel the rams will catch the bears dropping Lynch/Mack into coverage, which is a huge mismatch when we’re talking Gurly. Trubisky will either be rusty from his 2 week vacation or come out swinging to show this is his teams doing he wanted to be out there but the coach wouldn’t let him.

For the bears to win this game the defensive line has to step up big all game long. They have to get constant pressure on Goff. The will need to capitalize on mistake and turn those into points.

This should be a good one guys! This game should tell us all if the bears really have a shot at a deep playoff run.

It's reality, the bears are not as good as the rams. Maybe home field advantage, and the cold will help. Realistically they are in different tiers.

Their defense gives up 27 PPG. They’ve been in some close battles. They had close games against:
Vikings 31-38
Seahawks 31-33 / 31-36
Broncos 20-23
Pukers 27-29
Chiefs 51-54

The toughest defenses they’v beaten in points allowed were the hawks 21.6, Vikings 22.5. They lost to the saints who are averaging 22.4 points allowed per game. The saints have the ability to generate points on offense, much like the bears. The only difference I see is the bears only allow 20 points per game and can put serious pressure on opposing QB’s and generate points off of turnovers. But can they do it for 4 quarters? I do think the rams are an overall better team, but I feel the bears have the right tools to match up well with them. I don’t think their in a different tier. Mack will have to earn his money this game and step up big time. This also should be fun seeing two young innovative HC’s play chess.

Bears show they're for legit SB contenders this week with a victory at home. I believe the team's preparation will be excellent and focused. The Rams D makes big plays, but still allows a lot of point, and I think the Bears will exploit that.

Trubisky will play lights out at home. Howard bangs it up the middle early and often leaving the Rams defense exhausted. The Rams and Goff will play well, but too many fumbles from slippery conditions will be the difference.

Now that I've gotten that out of my system... I do think we have a puncher's chance if a lot of things break our way. We HAVE to stop their run, everything is predicated off that and my God do they love throwing fucking corner routes (based on the limited "film" I watched of them). You shut that part of them down and get a lead on them, I do think we can have our pass rushers tee off on them. Also, Fuller and Amukamara have to ball out, and Eddie Jackson is going to have to make Goff pay for any errant throws that he commits.

Can Roquan shut down Gurley in the passing game? So many questions and at minimum the chess match I hope is going to be fun.

Offensively... draw a huge red circle around Aaron Donald. Move the pocket, quick hitters, screens, slants, get the ball out fast. We HAVE to find a fucking way to get the run game going. Donald punctures the pocket so quickly that if you can off-set that with a missed tackle you can gash them in the run game. Will Nagy stick to it, though?

The Rams have some quality corners so we are going to have to win our matchups... is this the game where we see more Trey Burton and Adam Shaheen? I wouldn't hate coming out in 12 personnel to establish the run and then build off the play action game (haven't seen that yet this year).

Should be a blast, I hope.

I am going to go with the Bears in the upset. I think the Rams are the better team atm , however the better team doesnt alway win. I look for a low scoring affair, and hopefully come out of it healthy.

Bears 20
Rams 17

Funny that in this day and age 20 to 17 is a low scoring affair lmao

Biscuit returns and officially enters Chicago Sports Lore with an outstanding performance. Donald can be managed. Hiestand can gameplan for him. Marcus Peters can't cover everyone. The Rams gave up a shit load of points to the Chiefs who run a similar offense. Our defense is better than the Chiefs and I think we get another Khalil Mack Game.

I'm torn between us losing a shootout something like 31-38 or the defence balling out and us winning a squeaker 24-23.

Gotta stick with 12-4 so the squeaker it is.

Bears 24, Rams 23.

~Bears @ home vs the LA Rams!~

This is going to be an early Christmas gift/Playoff game!!!

In my last (Challenge riddled prediction game) the defense played VERY well but somehow did NOT have the pressure/Sacks that they should have against that suspect Giants Oline.

Everything works when this defense works the way its supposed to AND the offense scores a few points early.

Both of these things didn't happen & thus the result was the only possibke result.

This week I see these 2 problems being corrected due to Mitch being back & the Bears Defense treating this game
like a playoff game!

There's a GREAT chance that this game winds up being a blow out.

But for who?
.. Whom??

But..for which team???

The Rams have a "K. Mack" of their own in A. Donald & the Bears have a Whitman.. Who's been extremely streaky.

If the Bears do NOT have an answer for Donald the Rams are going to win this game by 14+ points in 2nd half points.


* * *

Mitch is back though... & he's extremely slippery in the pocket & very hard to catch.

If Donald has a bunch of pressures there's an equal chance that Mitch makes big throws downfield or picks up 1st downs on the run.

My Pagan Prediction:
Bears Defense=
This is going to be a WAY over hyped Donald/Mack game that settles the DPOY award argument.

An argument that Mack settles.
Mack: 3 Sacks, 1 (strip sack) FF, & tons of QB pressures
Jackson: Pick 6
Hicks: 2 Sacks 3 TFL & 1 play as a FB on a Goaline play :)
Callahan: 1 Sack, 1INT

This is a game (remarkably) that the refs ACTUALLY call holding calls against the opponents Oline!


Bears Offense=

Mich is Back!
3 Passing TD & 1 Rush TD
300/50

J.Howard: 22 carries 100+ yards
1 TD *(With Hicks (FB) leading the way!)*

Miller: 80 yards 1 TD
T. Cohen : 200 yards of total offense 1 TD
Shaheen: 1TD

Bears: 37

Rams: 20

Several Bears player's stay on the field for the fans (& media interviews)

City spend the next week going absolutely NUTS!

I might be the only one that think Mitch is going to come out flat. Big struggles the 1st half, defense, and better QB play in the second half makes it closer.

Bears - 24
