Predict the Score: Chicago vs. St. Louis

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

The Chicago Bears have scored 41 points and 10 points in their first two games, respectively, so good luck predicting what they'll do this weekend against the St. Louis Rams, a surprisingly sneaky team so far. 

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 T-shirt. At the end of the season, we'll have a random drawing for a larger prize.


• 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, Rams 0.)

• All entries need to be received by the start of the game. Since 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!

I would have thought Lois Lane would have won - that person's difference was 5

Hi Lisa, we get the score by combining the difference between actual points scored and predicted score for each team. It doesn't matter if the guess is higher or lower than the score, but the person with the lowest overall difference wins. So York's difference was 1 over the Bears score and 7 over the Rams score, for a total 8-point difference, as compared to Lois Lane's 11-point difference. Hope that makes sense!
