Chicago Bears face the third easiest schedule

Things are changing quickly in the National Football League, so while the Chicago Bears currently face the third-easiest schedule based on their 2023 opponent’s winning percentage (.467), several of the teams they’ll play look much better .

While the AFC is the strongest conference from top to bottom, the NFC North is arguably one of the toughest divisions in the league. The Bears haven’t beaten the Packers since 2018 and over the last fifteen years they are 4-27. Chicago may have split with the Lions last season, but Detroit is the defending division champion and they narrowly lost in the NFC Conference championship game to the 49ers. The Vikings had a down 2023, but they have a solid defense and are hoping for better quarterback play.

Another way to look at Chicago’s schedule is how many playoff teams they face, and the Bears have seven games against ’23 postseason clubs. The Ravens, who play 10 teams that made the playoffs last year, face the brunt.

The strength of the NFL schedule reminds me of the points in a game Whose line is it anyway?
