The Sun-Times’ experts offer their picks for the Bears’ Week 15 game against the Packers at Soldier Field:
The Bears are loaded for Packer. They can win the division by winning Sunday, which is incentive enough. But the chance to do so against Green Bay, the franchise that has owned them for too many years, doubles the incentive. Now, if only that Aaron Rodgers fellow plays nice. Season: 8-5.
Bears, 24- 20
In this 20,000th meeting of archrivals, it seems the pendulum might be swinging the Bears’ way for a while. It’s fair to say the Packers are semi-rebuilding, except for ironman Rodgers. That’s a big “except for.” Season: 9-4.

It’s time for the Bears to slay the dragon. If not now, when? They’re the better team. But a win requires a better performance from quarterback Mitch Trubisky.
Bears, 24-21 (OT)
The Packers have beaten the Bears in 15 of the last 17 meetings and nine of the last 10. With their slim playoff hopes on the line, Sunday will be their Super Bowl. The Bears, though, have been stewing about their Week 1 loss in Green Bay for three months. Season: 9-4.
The Bears have plenty of motivation: avenging the Week 1 loss at Lambeau Field and clinching the NFC North title. But the letdown factor and Rodgers figure to keep it close. Season: 9-4.
