Predict the Score: Chicago vs. Detroit

The Chicago Bears are back after the bye week and take on the Detroit Lions. Can you guess the score? Closest prediction to the outcome wins a Patch T-shirt!

The last time we saw the Bears on Monday Night Football, they were pummeling the Cowboys. Now, coming off the bye week, Chicago looks to go 5-1 with a win over the "bad boy" Detroit Lions. 

Patch is getting in on the action.

Predict the score prior to Monday's Bears game. The reader who correctly guesses the score, or comes closest to guessing the score, will get a Patch T-shirt. At the end of the season, we'll have a random drawing among the weekly winners for a larger prize.

Congratulations to last game's champion, Martin, who guessed the exact score of the Bears beating the Jaguars 41-3.


• If you’re a Patch reader, simply comment on the bottom of this article with your name and what you think the final score of the next Bears game will be. (Example: Benny Bears Fan, Bears 102, Lions 0.)

• All entries need to be received by the start of the game. Because the Bears' game is at 7:30 p.m. Monday (CST), we'll need all entries by then.

• To determine the winner, we will take the difference between actual points scored and predicted score for each team, and add them up for everyone who posted in the comments section. The person whose combined total is closest to zero wins. And it doesn't matter if the points you give are higher or lower than actual points scored, we're just looking for the person who has the lowest differential.

• If two or more people tie for being the closest to the actual total of points scored, a random drawing will be held to determine the winner.

• Only one entry allowed per person. All participants must be 18 years or older. You can read our official giveaway guidelines here.

So, please, comment away. And tell your friends!
