Which version of the Baltimore Ravens will show up in Week 11?
The Ravens lost to the Miami Dolphins in Week 10, 22-10. Baltimore struggled to move the ball downfield, entering the Red Zone just twice and turning the ball over twice in the loss.
In their last four games, the Ravens crushed the Los Angeles Chargers, 34-6, then got crushed by the Cincinnati Bengals, 41-17, edged out the Minnesota Vikings by three points in overtime, then lost to the Dolphins by double digits.
The Chicago Bears have been a little more consistent, consistently losing their last four games.
The Bears gave the Pittsburgh Steelers a run for their money last week, losing 29-27. Quarterback Justin Fields showed some progress as a passer, and running back David Montgomery looked strong, but it wasn’t meant to be.
Despite the solid play of Chicago’s young offense, referee Tony Corrente was the most popular name after the Bears loss on Monday Night Football. When the referee is the most mentioned person, that’s never a good takeaway from any game.

Ravens vs. Bears Prediction and Pick
The Bears rushing defense is 23rd in the NFL, allowing 122.8 rushing yards per game. They could have an issue with Lamar Jackson on Sunday.
But while Jackson may run all over Chicago’s defense, the progressing Justin Fields may throw all over the Ravens 31st-ranked passing defense. The combo of Tua Tagovailoa and Jacoby Brissett chucked the pigskin for 314 yards against Baltimore last week, so Fields could find Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney several times in Week 11.
The Ravens will have to deal with a now healthy David Montgomery and Justin Fields on the ground, so this matchup could be a trap for Baltimore backers. After the way the Ravens are playing, they have no sure wins remaining on their schedule.
Lamar Jackson is flashy, but I can't think of too many things that are dimmer than a 12-point loss to the Dolphins, which Baltimore just accomplished.
Pick: Bears +6.5
