Predict the Score: Chicago vs. Dallas

The Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys play this Monday night. Can you guess the score? Closest prediction to the outcome wins a Patch T-shirt!

The Chicago Bears rebounded last week to beat the St. Louis Rams, but now a bigger test awaits as they head to Dallas for Monday Night Football.

Patch is getting in on the action.

Predict the score prior to Monday's Bears game. The reader who correctly guesses the score, or comes closest to guessing the score, will get a Patch T-shirt. At the end of the season, we'll have a random drawing for a larger prize.

Congratulations to last week's winner, York, who predicted the Bears would beat the Rams 24-13 with an eight-point difference from the actual score of 23-6. 


• If you’re a Patch reader, simply comment on the bottom of this article with your name and what you think the final score of the next Bears game will be. (Example: Benny Bears Fan, Bears 102, Cowboys 0.)

• All entries need to be received by the start of the game. Since the Bears' game is at 7:30 p.m. Monday (CST), we'll need all entries by then.

• To determine the winner, we will take the difference between actual points scored and predicted score for each team, and add them up for everyone who posted in the comments section. The person whose combined total is closest to zero wins. And it doesn't matter if the points you give are higher or lower than actual points scored, we're just looking for the person who has the lowest differential.

• If two or more people tie for being the closest to the actual total of points scored, a random drawing will be held to determine the winner.

• Only one entry allowed per person. All participants must be 18 years or older. You can read our official giveaway guidelines here.

So, please, comment away. And tell your friends!

Cari... Flipping John's scores...that makes more sense. You just trying to prove you're human? :)

You caught me, I'm actually a robot. ;)

LOL you think I care? Check the time stamp on my previous comment. I offered her the shirt BEFORE any of you even mentioned the scoring. Its a joke. Get a sense of humor.

Wow, I have been scraping wallpaper all afternoon then had a volunteer meeting this evening until late. This certainly generated a lot of comments. John, thanks for offering to send me the shirt. It would be greatly appreciated but it looks as though I am getting my own. It was obviously wishful thinking about the Bears win on my part and I literally just made up 2 numbers. Call it beginner's luck?
