The Bears are having a good season. The Chargers are having a bad season. Most experts think those trends will continue when the teams meet in Week 11.
The Bears have won four straight games. The Chargers have lost four straight games. Not only is that tremendously convenient symmetry, but it should give us a clue about the expert picks for this NFL Week 11 matchup. My prediction: People will be choosing the Bears to win.
Indeed, Sports Illustrated's Peter King believes just that will happen. His pick: Bears 33, Chargers 13.
We interrupt this lovefest between Philip Rivers and Jay Cutler for a football game. And not a particularly pretty one. The Bears haven't lost since Week 5. The Chargers haven't won since Week 5. Patterns continue.
More of the same at ESPN.com, where only one expert -- Adam Schefter -- is giving San Diego a chance to win this game. At CBSSports.com, again there's one lone solider -- Pete Prisco -- who likes the Bolts over the Bears.
