Predict the Score: Chicago vs. Minnesota

The Bears travel to Minnesota this weekend. Can you guess the score? Closest prediction to the outcome wins a Patch T-shirt!

The Bears and Vikings met just two weeks ago, and it wasn't a contest. Chicago won 28-10 at home, but can they duplicate that effort in Minnesota?

Predict the score prior to Sunday's Bears game. The reader who correctly guesses the score, or comes closest to guessing the score, will get a Patch T-shirt. At the end of the season, we'll have a random drawing among the weekly winners for a larger prize.

Congratulations to Mitotero, who predicted the Seahawks would beat the Bears 21-10 last week (the actual score was 23-17).


• If you’re a Patch reader, simply comment on the bottom of this article with your name and what you think the final score of the next Bears game will be. (Example: Benny Bears Fan, Bears 102, Vikings 0.)

• All entries need to be received by the start of the game. Because the Bears' game is at noon Sunday (CST), we'll need all entries by then.

• To determine the winner, we will take the difference between actual points scored and predicted score for each team, and add them up for everyone who posted in the comments section. The person whose combined total is closest to zero wins. And it doesn't matter if the points you give are higher or lower than actual points scored, we're just looking for the person who has the lowest differential.

• If two or more people tie for being the closest to the actual total of points scored, a random drawing will be held to determine the winner.

• Only one entry allowed per person. All participants must be 18 years or older. You can read our official giveaway guidelines here.

So, please, comment away. And tell your friends!

Antony, I actually make a very valid point even if it is not shared by all. Different priorities perhaps. Can we drink to that?

Go find a different venue for your comments, Jim.

Me thinks you won, Anthony. Good job!

This was a close one between Anthony and Annette, but Anthony emerged victorious with three-point difference to the Vikings winning score of 21-14. Anthony, I'll email you shortly to coordinate delivery of your prize. Thanks everyone for participating!

Johner Probably should not get so introspective in a column devoted to sports.
