Pro Football Network: Bears 23, Lions 21
Ben Rolfe writes: "You may look at the results from this weekend and ask yourself how the Bears are favorites. Well, had Marquise Brown been able to catch for the Ravens, we would not have needed to witness the magic from Justin Tucker that we saw against Detroit. The Lions were not all that good in Week 3; then again, the Bears were dreadful. This game could be an ugly matchup where Chicago’s defense needs to be the difference until the Bears can get Justin Fields comfortable."
Sportsnaut: Bears 27, Lions 23
Vincent Frank writes: "Yet another road game the Lions should at least be competitive in, their issues at the skill positions could very well hamper them against a good Bears defense. I am also not too sure how well D’Andre Swift will do going up against a solid Chicago defensive front. He must have a huge season against defenses playing out against the run. I just don’t see it in this one."
Sportsnaut: Bears 24, Lions 20
Matt Johnson writes: "There will come a time, maybe three years from now, when the Detroit Lions are a legitimate NFC North threat. But this roster is being rebuilt from the ground up and that’s something Chicago can take advantage of. Granted, by Matt Nagy’s standards, that means an ugly game."
Bears Wire: Bears will get win over Lions in Week 4
Alyssa Barbieri writes: "The Bears have owned the Lions during the Matt Nagy era, but no win is guaranteed, as evidenced by last season’s home loss to Detroit. Chicago should avoid getting their kneecaps bitten off as Jared Goff now gets to face his favorite player in Khalil Mack twice a year."
CBS Sports: Bears 30, Lions 13
Jordan Dajani writes: "The Lions are going to be one of the worst teams in the NFL this season. Chicago's defense will stifle Goff and the Bears' running backs will carry them to victory."
Draft Kings: Take the Lions with the points against the Bears in Week 4
Teddy Ricketson writes: "I know that I am probably shocking the world by taking the Lions, but they have been playing really well so far this season. Their problem is that they can’t sustain their level of play the entire game, but they came super close against the Ravens. The offense is getting down the field and the defense stepped up and held the Ravens nearly the whole game. This Bears offense is worrisome with Fields under center as they couldn’t do anything against the Browns. Fields was sacked nine times but only completed six passes on the day."
