The Detroit Lions are hoping to keep the good times flowing, as they come back home from their west coast trip at 7-2. They welcome the Chicago Bears to town. The Bears may only be 3-7 this season, but they’ve won two of their last four, and as the Lions coaching staff has said all week, they’re a much better team than they were last season and they’re as healthy as they’ve been all season.

So does that mean the Lions are due for an upset on their home field? Ehhh... we don’t really think so, but this is the NFL. There is no such thing as an easy win, in particular when you’re playing a divisional game.

With that in mind, here are our predictions of Week 11’s game between the Lions and Bears.

Brandon Knapp (8-1): 35-20 Lions
Ryan Mathews (8-1): 35-28 Lions
Meko Scott (7-2): 31-13 Lions
Alex Reno (7-2): 42-24 Lions
Jerry Mallory (7-2): 31-20 Lions
Kellie Rowe (7-2): 34-17 Lions
Morgan Cannon (6-3): 34-23 Lions
Jeremy Reisman (6-3): 31-27 Lions (On Paper preview)
Erik Schlitt (6-3): 35-17 Lions (Honolulu Blueprint)
Hamza Baccouche (6-3): 27-19 Lions
Kyle Yost (6-3): 31-17 Lions
John Whiticar (5-4): 31-20 Lions
Chris Perfett (0-0-9): 29-29 Tie

As you can see, we’re all taking the Lions, but the staff is a little more split when it comes to the betting line, which is set at Lions -8 as of Sunday morning. Most are still expecting a two-score win, but a few of us think this could end a bit closer than expected.
