Puppy Pick 'Em Week 15: Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers in Week 15

Puppy Pick 'Em Week 15: Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers in Week 15

When the Bears announced their 2019 schedule, we decided to have some puppies reveal the opponents. Now, we have taken it a step further. We have a puppy that will make weekly picks for the Bears games.

It is Week 15 and it's all dairy in the studios at NBC Sports Chicago. Greek Town is famous in Chicago and if you have not had flaming cheese you have not lived. Saganaki (saga-KNOCK-ee) vs Cheddar cheese….(yawn) it is shredded...which is what the Bears are hoping to do to The Pack in Week 15.

We love going on Walter’s journey and enjoy seeing him grow up. He was hand-selected by the scouts at NBC Sports Chicago and hails from One Tail at a Time rescue. He came from a shelter in Alabama and was transported to Chicago.  At just 7 weeks old and without his mom, he beat a deadly virus and spent some time in the doggie ER, where he healed and became strong again. Now, Walter has found a home of his own and is the king of the castle.

Walter will pick the games throughout the NFL season, including the playoffs and we hope that his nose follows the scent to the Bears every week, all the way to that magical game in Miami in February. Narrated by Jason Benetti, play-by-play announcer for the White Sox.  

It is time for Puppy Pick ‘Em presented by Nissan.

The Bears now have the dubious honor of motivating 49ers' RB Raheem Mostert's 4-TD day

Raheem Mostert's been cut by six different teams since 2015, so a chip on the shoulder isn't exactly surprising. 

After his 220-yard, four touchdown performance in the NFC Championship, the 27-year old explained what still gets him motivated before every game:

And who was the last team to cut Mostert before he signed with the 49ers? The Bears of course! In 2016, Mostert was signed to the their practice squad, and he ended up appearing in two games before getting cut in October. He made another brief appearance on the team's practice squad later in the year, but was off the roster for good by Thanksgiving. 

It's not some huge indictment of the team, but since the 2020 playoffs are apparently solely focused on hurting Bears' fans without even involving the Bears, this feels about right.
