The Sun-Times’ experts offer their picks for the Bears’ home game Sunday against the Ravens:

Rick Morrissey

Ravens 27-17

Miami figured out a way to stop Lamar Jackson last week, which means the Bears are going to be facing a very motivated quarterback Sunday. The Ravens’ defense is exceptional against the run but awful against the pass. I can’t decide if that’s good news or bad for Justin Fields. Season: 7-2.

Rick Telander

Ravens 24-21

The Bears are driven by hope and dreams. The hope is Fields keeps improving. The dreams are the team, coaches and GM improve with him. Jackson is whom Fields dreams to be. It could all be a hallucination. Season: 6-3.

Patrick Finley

Ravens 27-21

With the fourth-best rush defense in the NFL, the Ravens figure to take away David Montgomery and make the Bears throw. Three weeks ago, that would have been a terrible recipe for the Bears — but now? More importantly, though: do I get half-credit for picking the Bears over the Steelers? Season: 7-2. 

Jason Lieser

Ravens 24-20

The Ravens are out to prove they’re a legitimate AFC contender. The Bears are out to prove they’re a legitimate NFL team. Fields will continue his rise, but there are too many questions about the Bears’ defense. Season: 7-2.

Mark Potash

Ravens, 26-17

The Bears are coming off their bye week and are energized by Fields’ performance against the Steelers. But the Ravens are on long rest, as well, and figure to respond after losing to the Dolphins last Thursday night. Season: 7-2.

The Latest
Chase Audige scored 24 points as the Wildcats won their third straight. Their 15th win matched last season’s total.
It wasn’t pretty in the fourth quarter — the Bulls watched a 25-point lead slip to five — but they took some baby steps to pull off the victory. It’s still a “little disturbing,” point guard Goran Dragic said.
Juniors Cam Cerese, Dennasio LaGioia and Tommy Rochford led the Lancers to the win against one of the best teams in Fenton school history.
Tyler Kolek had 24 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds for the Golden Eagles, who moved into a tie with No. 13 Xavier atop the Big East.
Mayer tied his career high with five three-pointers and Jayden Epps added 13 points for the Fighting Illini, who have won six of their last seven.
