Predict the Score: Chicago vs. Jacksonville

The Chicago Bears and Jacksonville Jaguars play this Sunday. Can you guess the score? Closest prediction to the outcome wins a Patch baseball cap!

If the Bears can blow out the Cowboys in Dallas, on Monday Night Football, they can certainly beat down the lowly Jaguars in Jacksonville this week, right?

Patch is getting in on the action.

Predict the score prior to Sunday's Bears game. The reader who correctly guesses the score, or comes closest to guessing the score, will get a Patch baseball cap. At the end of the season, we'll have a random drawing for a larger prize.

Congratulations to last week's winner, Dottie, who predicted the Bears would beat the Cowboys 31-12 (the actual score was 34-18).


• 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, Jaguars 0.)

• All entries need to be received by the start of the game. Since the Bears' game is at 3:05 p.m. Sunday (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!

Holy moly, Martin for the win! Right on the money with zero-point disparity to the actual Bears winning score of 41-3. I'll email you to coordinate delivery of your shirt! Keep up the great guesses, guys. This coming week is a bye for the Bears, but we'll be back with another predict-the-score post next week. That will look forward to our second Monday Night Football game of the season, this time against Detroit.

Wow... Thanks. The 41 was basically for the Defense to score 3 TDs and squeak by the Offense.
