OUR PICK: With this being the dress rehearsal for both teams and the Chiefs likely to have the better regular season, they're the team to back today. The Bears have injury issues along their offensive line and don't appear to have developed chemistry yet in new offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains' system. With the Chiefs having already found cohesion long ago with Andy Reid, they should look sharper today than the Bears.
