Hub Arkush (season record: 9-4):

Honestly, I'm just going with my gut, not my heart or my head here, guys. I hate having to make this pick without knowing the injury status of Montgomery, Gabriel, Massie, Hicks, Trevathan or Amukamara, but I'm assuming all but Trevathan can go, and, honestly, the difference between Massie and Cornelius Lucas doesn't feel that great right now. The Packers haven't played their best football the past few weeks, and the Bears have. Plus, there is revenge in play and at the end of the day, the Bears just need this one a lot more than the Packers do. Rodgers is more likely to be the difference, but I'm guessing Hicks, Khalil Mack and Trubisky will be this time. Bears 27, Packers 23

Arthur Arkush (season record: 9-4):

The Bears remain likely to be at home in January, but they’re going out with a bang — including an upset of the rival Packers at Lambeau. This is not a typo: Mitch Trubisky is the hotter of the two quarterbacks, leading the hotter offense entering Sunday, and beating Rodgers’ Packers with another big performance would be a decent consolation to returning to the playoffs. If the Bears don’t let Za’Darius Smith and Kenny Clark wreck the game, their offense will stay on track and produce enough to supplement what I expect to be another terrific performance by a shorthanded defense, now buoyed by the return of Akiem Hicks. Bears 24, Packers 21

Sean Hammond (season record: 9-4):

The Bears are playing as well as they have all year. The Week 1 matchup with Green Bay was one of their more abysmal offensive efforts, and I wouldn't expect a repeat of that. Green Bay's defense has proven it will surrender yards, but it is one of the league's best in the red zone. Mitchell Trubisky and the Bears offense should have an opportunity to move the ball. This game will come down to whether the Bears can punch the ball in once in the red zone. The offense has converted on six of its past nine red zone attempts over the past two games. Bears 21, Packers 20

Barry Rozner, Daily Herald (season record: 6-7):

Mitch Trubisky’s march to the Hall of Fame continues this week as the Bears face a Green Bay team that hasn’t looked good since a win at Kansas City in October. The Packers have gone 3-2 after beating the Chiefs, winning against three awful teams, and have been pushed around physically in every game. The Bears keep their Super Bowl dreams alive with a victory on the road. Bears 30, Packers 22

Joe Aguilar, Daily Herald (season record: 8-5):

Believe. In Mitch. In Matt Nagy. The Bears may have provided some holiday cheer for their fans the past coupe of weeks, but this is still Aaron Rodgers' team (or is it Aaron Jones' team now?), Lambeau Field and the Packers in Packer weather. A Bears defense that continues to get depleted by injury more and more every week can't continue to perform at a high level with Kevin Toliver, Kevin Pierre-Louis and Brent Urban. Aaron (pick one) will prevail. Packers 27, Bears 24
