Predict the Score: Chicago vs. Minnesota

The Bears try to stop their losing streak against the Vikings. Can you guess the score? Closest prediction to the outcome wins a Patch T-shirt.

Well that was ugly. The Bears' Monday Night Football shellacking at the hands of the 49ers could make Chicago fans worry about the rest of the season.

Predicting what could happen is useless, because from week to week, anything can happen. Having said that, Patch is getting in on the action.

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

Congratulations to Avg. Guy, who predicted the 49ers would beat the Bears 31-9 last week (the actual score was 32-7).

 HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

• 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, Vikings 0.)

• All entries need to be received by the start of the game. Because the Bears' game is at noon 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!
