The Sun-Times’ experts offer their picks for the Bears-Giants matchup in Week 11.
The Giants have won four games in a row, they have a good quarterback and they protect that quarterback well. In other words, they’re the polar opposite of the Bears. Speaking of polar, the season figures to remain frigid for John Fox’s team. Season: 5-4
I can’t win and neither can these losers, and together we revel in their ineptitude. This is a lost season with the only possible redemption being disaster so overwhelming it leads to new ownership. Right? Season: 2-7

Winners of four straight games, the Giants have a wildcard berth in their sights. They’ve prevailed even though Eli Manning has thrown six interceptions in those four wins. Things simply are working for the Giants. The Bears? Not so much. Season: 4-5
Forget the Blackhawks and Bulls — the Bears are on their own circus trip. As in, this could become one. After losing to the Buccaneers by 26, anything short of a blowout at Met Life Stadium would be a moral victory. Send in the clowns. Season: 5-4
Giants, 27-24 OT
Bears are not coming off a bye. They’re not healthy. They’re not rested. They’re not coming off a big victory. They’re not facing a team coming off back-to-back losses that has yet to win at home. And they’re on the road, where they are 0-5 SU/ATS. That’s a perfect recipe for an upset in this crazy league. Season: 4-5
