Default First loss, or first win?

Rather than talking about the Bears going undefeated, or the Raiders not winning a single game, maybe we spin the topic by asking which streak ends first.

Me, I think the Raiders win first.

The Raiders will win first, only because I think they'll beat Arizona at home. Chicago has Arizona, San Fransisco, a bye and Miami at home the next four weeks.

I voted for a Bears loss, simply because the Raiders have a legitimate shot at going 0-16.

I looked at the skeds, and I think the Bears lose first. I think they lose to the Pats on Nov 26, and then the Raiders win the next week vs. Houston.

Umm, not really, no. I know they are best team in the league right now, but there is a reason no one has ever gone 16-0 in the regular season, its kinda hard. Looking at their schedule, they play @ Giants, @ Jets, @ Patriots all in a row, three straight road games will be tough to get through. Then they play the Vikings at home and go to St.Louis immediately after those three games. Both those teams will be fighting to make the playoffs. They also play @Lions and Packers at home to end the year. Those teams will be playing for nothing but pride, against, if they're are still undefeated, a team that is naturally not going to be as "up" for the game because homefield will already be locked up. The Lions and Packers would love nothing more than to ruin an undefeated season for a division rival. Talk to me about them going undefeated once they get past that Giants, Jets, Patriots, Vikings, and Rams stretch.

I know they will try to get jacked up for it, but it just natural to have sense of relaxation once homefield is locked up. If they get through that Giants, Jets, Patriots, Vikings, and Rams stretch and are still undefeated, knowing what I know now, I'd say they will go undefeated because the Bucs, Lions, and Packers look pretty bad, but a lot can change by week 15.

Personally, I don't think we'll go undefeated, that just doesn't happen. Although 15-1 is likely with this schedule.

No it's not. 15-1 is never likely. It's never likely to finish 10-1. We should win 12 games. Anything more than that is icing on the cake.

Yea, I would say that 14-2 or 15-1 is the range the Bears will finish. They should get 6 wins from their division.

It is much easier to go 0-16 than it is 16-0.

They've already have, and won in the toughest dome to play in the NFL. Yeah, I said it. The EJD isn't nearly as loud as The HHH Metrodome.

As much as I'd like it to happen, I really don't think we're going undefeated.

1) It's virtually impossible
2) No one's ever done it
3) If we keep playing like we are, we could wrap up the division by about week 11 or 12, maybe earlier

It's easier to go winless than undefeated? How many teams have lost 16 games then?

I think the Bears can go undefeated. I'll explain later.
