Chicago and Detroit will battle it out for second place in the NFC North this week.

The last time these two NFC North rivals squared off they combined for a grand total of 26 penalties totaling 198 yards. Chicago lost that game, and fissures opened up for the public to see. It was little wonder that the press started writing their obituary after that game. Since then, Chicago has righted the ship, winning their next three games. 

Detroit lost two of three games over that same span. If the Lions can win, it will give them a two game lead over the Bears for second place in the division. Chicago can tie it up in the standings with a win, setting up one of the more intriguing wild card battles as they watch the Packers run away with the NFC North crown. 

So who are the experts picking this week? Peter King's week 10 picks give this one to the resurgent Bears, in a low scoring affair. 

ESPN's panel picks the Bears across the board, while CBS splits the vote.
