NFL Picks Analysis: Having Brandon Marshall in a Bears uniform will be a huge for his old teammate Jay Cutler and the passing game. Matt Forte is one of the best running backs in the biz and the combination of Cutler, Forte and Brandon Marshall at the skill positions makes the offense a match-up nightmare. The O-line should get a boost with the return of tackle Gabe Carmini back from injury but the line is still a major question mark. The top-5 defense is solid as usual with a swarming pass-rush although stars Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs and Julius Peppers are aging . Special teams are a major weapon for Chicago with a dynamic return man in Devin Hester and a field flipping punter in Adamde Podlesh. The 2012 NFC North Odds have Chicago at +250.

Expect a somewhat dissapointing 9-7 finish despite the big free agency splash made with the signing of Brandon Marshall.
