Raider should take apart the Bears O without Cutler. Cant see how the Bears score. Dropped their WRs from my fanatsy line up.

Nation 27 Bears 10

The Chiefs put 28 past the Raiders. They are weak against the run and Seymour is banged up. The Bears run game has been poor the last two weeks but this week the Bears will be working on a run heavy package and I can see Forte having a good game.

The Bears D will play two deep safeties to help stop the speed Oakland have at WR and I think it will be very close.

Bears 16 19 Raiders

This game all comes down to the Run Defenses of both teams.

If the Bears can force Palmer to throw then I believe they will force turnovers and be in prime position to win the game. However, if Bush can gain more than 100 yards the Bears will lose this game.
On the flip side if the Bears can get the run game moving again and play possession football they will win the game. If Forte and Barber get stuffed repeatedly and Hanie is forced to throw, it could be a long day for the Bears Offense.

I think the Bears run over the Raiders and force Palmer to throw resulting in a Bears win 20-13.

If the Bears run game turns up, they win. If Forte disappears then Barber isn't enough on his own and the Raiders win it by a TD. The Raiders might make it hard on themselves with penalties and Palmer needs to have a problem-free, precise game to stamp out the wobbles. The Raiders need to stay ahead of Denver and San Diego.

Raiders at home. Forte is the key to flip the scoreline.

Chicago 20 - 27 Raiders

^^ I know you mentioned that you think Forte isn't playing so well because of his contract situation but I'm not sure I agree. I think it simply rests on the Oline, the past two games it has been getting abused and the injuries/constant personnel changes have really weakened it. There just aren't that many holes.

I have no idea how this game will go but I do know this.

After the Raiders, the Bears games vs KC and Denver will have potential to be some of the worst games ever played.

The No-QB bowls.

Bears D better than Raiders D, Raiders O better than Bears O (even WITH Cutler).

I think Bears would have snuck a win with Cutler, I think we sneak the win without him. The scorelines in our last 2 games don't reflect the dominance of the teams performance.
