You pick 'em: Bears vs. Jaguars

It really seems like the Bears' season turned violently in a five-play span last Sunday night in the Metrodome.

While that epic failure has been well-documented, there is no getting around that basic fact that 7-5 would just feel so much better than 6-6. With four games remaining, the Bears might have to win out to assure they reach the postseason.

That quest begins Sunday at a frigid Soldier Field against the disappointing Jacksonville Jaguars. Even though the Jags are 4-8, they're a team that is scary because of the explosiveness of running back Maurice Jones-Drew.

If the weather is nasty, this could turn into a slugfest in the trenches. The way Kyle Orton has been playing lately, that might not be the worst thing in the world for the Bears.

I'll pull a George Constanza and listen to the little man inside of me and go with my gut.

Bears 20, Jaguars 13 in a sloppy game filled with Robbie Gould field goals and errant David Garrard passes.

Tell us how you see this one shaking out.
