Chicago Bears schedule 2024: Takeaways, predictions

Bears' 2024 schedule released, featuring matchups with top rookie QBs, international game in London, and revenge game against Seahawks.

The Chicago Bears' 2024 schedule has been officially released, marking the beginning of the Caleb Williams era in the Windy City. The season kicks off on September 8th as the Bears face off against the Tennessee Titans at Soldier Field, coinciding with the historic stadium's 100-year anniversary.

The highly anticipated season will see Williams, the No. 1 pick in the 2024 draft, go head-to-head with some of the NFL's youngest quarterbacks in the first 10 weeks. A standout matchup includes facing off against Jayden Daniels, this year's No. 2 pick, when the Bears take on the Washington Commanders in Week 8. Two weeks later, Chicago will host Drake Maye, the third pick in the draft, and the New England Patriots.

In a notable move, the Bears will play their first international game in five years when they host the Jacksonville Jaguars in London at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on October 13th.

With a strength of schedule tied for the league's third-easiest, the Bears will face opponents who had a .467 win percentage last season. Notably, the team will begin division play in Week 11, a departure from previous seasons. The final stretch of the season will see six of the last eight games against division rivals, including matchups against Green Bay and Minnesota at home, followed by a Thanksgiving Day game in Detroit.

A revenge game to watch out for is when new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron faces his former team, the Seattle Seahawks, in Week 17. Waldron, who was Seattle's OC from 2021-23, will bring his expertise and former Seahawks coaches to the Bears. This includes Kerry Joseph as quarterbacks coach, Chad Morton as running backs coach, and Robbie Picazo as offensive assistant. The matchup will also see Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith, who had a standout season under Waldron in 2022.

In a bold prediction, the Bears aim to break their losing streak against the Packers and capitalize on their favorable schedule. With potential wins on the road in Indianapolis, Washington, Detroit, and Minnesota, Chicago is eyeing a 10-7 record and a trip to the playoffs.
