How many games should the Chicago Bears win in 2022?
Winnable Game No. 1: Houston Texans at Chicago Bears (Week 3)
In week 3, the Bears take on the Houston Texans at home against their former head coach Lovie Smith.
While the Texans aren’t likely at the bottom of the league, they’re much closer to the bottom than the top. Personally, I think John Metchie was a good pickup, but the Texans still have a lot to do to get out of the hole they’re in.
Week 3: Win for the Chicago Bears.
Winnable Game No. 2: Chicago Bears at New York Giants (Week 4)
Similar to the Texans, the New York Giants are still in a hole. Now, something in their back pocket is that their regime is new— similarly to the Chicago Bears.
That being said, their question marks are bolded, and they’re underlined.
Daniel Jones is questionable, Saquon Barkley is questionable, their offense is arguably worse than the Bears, and their defense is clearly worse than the Bears.
Week 4: Win for the Chicago Bears.
Winnable Game No. 3: Washington Commanders at Chicago Bears (Week 6)
This was something I actually tweeted, and I believe it with my entire heart.
Jaylon Johnson, Kyler Gordon, Eddie Jackson, and Jaquan Brisker are about to have five combined turnovers in Week 6. There are people that believe in Carson Wentz as a quarterback, however, I’m not one of them.
With all the hype that’s around this new defensive secondary, it’s likely that the winning factor of this game is the Chicago Bears’ defense smothering Carson Wentz.
While I’m not a time-traveler, this is something that I believe I’ve seen in a dream before. The Bears are going to make this Commanders’ offense sweat, and while the Bears’ offense might not be the top of the line, their defense should make up for it.
Week 6: Win for the Chicago Bears.
