It's A Good Thing The Bears' Defense Is Nice

13. Jacksonville Jaguars (Home)

Trevor Lawrence is always reason to be a little nervous, but otherwise, the Jaguars look pretty meh. At least we don't have to deal with a Nick Foles-Doug Pederson reunion storyline for the entire week.

12. Indianapolis Colts (Away)

This game may be a sneaky tough matchup, if only because it's Week 3. Frankly, the first month of the Bears' season feels like anyone's guess. If Caleb Williams immediately becomes The Guy, 3-1 isn't out of the question. But if it takes time for the Bears' staff to figure out, you know, an entirely new offense, a road game against the Colts that early in the year could be trouble.

11. Tennessee Titans (Home)

This certainly isn't the most interesting or important game on the Bears' schedule, but I'd argue it's the second-most exciting? Maybe the most exciting? That first moment when Caleb Williams, Rome Odunze, and the rest of the Bears' offense takes the field at Soldier is going to be electric. And maybe the Titans end up being good, but this feels a lot like the 49ers Week 1 win from 2022.

10. Minnesota Vikings (Home)

There are a lot of reasons to believe that the Vikings may be back and relevant way sooner than people expect, but it doesn't feel like that's happening in 2024. The bad news is that this game is late enough in the season to expect that Minnesota's QB1 probably won't be Sam Darnold anymore. The good news is that means it'll be JJ McCarthy!

9. Minnesota Vikings (Away)

You don't want to read any more about the Vikings. I get it.
