This is the toughest call I've made all season.
The Packers are better offensively, even though the Bears will stuff the run and make them one-dimensional in Sunday's NFC Championship game. They may even be slightly better defensively, but the Bears special teams have been a great equalizer all season and the Bears are playing at Soldier Field.
Back and forth I go. Bears. Packers. Packers. Bears.
Some have predicted a high-scoring game. I don't see it. I don't see an extremely low-scoring game similar to the Packers' 10-3 win in the regular-season finale, either. I'm thinking 23-20 ... Bears.
They're going to have to play well AND having something else happen in their favor, such as Aaron Rodgers throwing an interception, Julius Peppers coming up with a strip sack or Devin Hester having a big day in the return game, but the Bears have been quietly confident this week and it has convinced me they can come out on top.
Last week's winner was Manimal, who predicted the Bears would win 38-24, by the way. The real score was 35-24, of course. Nicely done.
