Most experts expect the Chicago Bears to bounce back from their Week 2 loss in Green Bay when they host St. Louis on Sunday. The Rams have split two tight games this season, losing out to the Lions in Week 1, but topping the Redskins last week. The Bears were impressive their opening week win over the Colts, but struggled to move the ball against the Packers last week. Most experts seem to think we'll see a Chicago team more like the one we saw in the opener on the field this week.

Seven of the eight experts at CBS picked the Bears to win. At Yahoo!, two of three experts went with Chicago. At ESPN nine of ten experts selected the Bears (two experts, Eric Allen and Mark Schlereth had yet to make picks at the time of this post). And all three experts at NFL.com who had made picks went with Chicago (no picks from Michael Irvin or Kurt Warner yet posted). In total that makes 21 of 24 experts for the Bears.

See if the experts are correct when Chicago hosts St. Louis at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.
