The Seattle Seahawks were without cornerback Brandon Browner for the first two games of 2017 and will be without him once again, as head coach Pete Carroll revealed that the veteran will miss extended time after suffering a groin injury in a Week 10 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
The Bears are at home, but have lost four of their last six games after a 3-0 start. Josh McCown will once again start in place of an injured Jay Cutler (ankle), one week after Cutler came back from a groin injury that forced him to miss one start. Some Chicago fans think the Bears actually have a better shot with McCown.
Here at SBNation, four of six panelists believe Chicago will take care of business at home with McCown. The Bears are 1-0 with McCown as starter, so it’s not necessarily a downgrade in that respect. Conversely, five of eight experts at CBS Sports think Baltimore picks up the win on the road.
Everyone, including the fans, at Yahoo Sports thinks the Bears will win. Chicago is also the heavy favorite over at ESPN, where most are also going with the Bears.
