Now that the preseason has ended and the final cuts have come, it’s a little bit easier to see how the Chicago Bears might do in 2017. The following is a look at the four games Chicago has in September and whether they can win any of them.
The 2017 Chicago Bears are ready to begin what they hope is a better campaign than the debacle they had in 2016. The Bears have the talent on defense, but do they have enough? What about their secondary? And will they remain healthy? On the other side of the ball, however, the offense is looking very rough. Can quarterback Mike Glennon succeed?
Chicago’s biggest question heading into the season is at wide receiver. After the loss of Cameron Meredith in the preseason, the Bears have no true number one go-to guy. There is no one to stretch the field and give the defense nightmares. This is a serious issue that will plague the Bears this entire season unless they can somehow fix it. But they should have fixed it in the preseason.

The Bears will be able to do some good as the year moves along, but it’s going to be a rough start to the season. In fact, the Bears may go winless in their first four games. They play three out of their first four games against teams that made the playoffs last season. That makes for a rough start especially considering the issues they have on offense. Still, this team is built to surprise and could end up surprising a couple of the teams they take on early.
How will the Bears do? Will there be a chance that the Bears can win a game? Who do they have the best shot of winning beating? Let’s look at each of the four games the Bears have in September.
