Bears hot pick nationally, not locally

Apparently, the Chicago Bears received a little more love nationally than locally when it comes to predictions for Sunday’s NFC North showdown against the Detroit Lions. In this Countdown Daily clip, all three panelists take the Bears and explain their reasoning for doing so.

Of the 13 pundits polled on ESPN.com, nine picked the Bears, with Adam Schefter, Chris Mortensen, Ron Jaworski and Mike Golic taking the Lions.

Interestingly, locally at ESPNChicago.com, six of the 11 panelists picked the Lions. Disclaimer: I was one of those panelists.

What do you think?
