Check out Chris' predictions for the upcoming national and local sporting events this week.


Bears 27, Vikings 24

The Bears come off a big win over Cincinnati and will be on home turf. It will be a close game but Cutler and his WR’s will do well against the inexperienced Viking’s secondary.

Packers 38, Redskins 24

Coming off a hard fought loss over the 49ers, the Pack will roll over Griffin and the Redskins at the Packers home opener. Expect Rodgers, Matthews, and new RB Eddie Lacy to go off.
