Some thoughts:

  • Realistically, the start of the season is not difficult. Neither Houston nor Philadelphia strike me as being title contenders this season. The Bears are a young team on the rise and they need a few good things to happen to them early in the year so they can start to believe. This schedule makes that possible.
  • Four primetime games before the bye shows the NFL believes the NFL thinks the Bears might be pretty good.
  • Perfect bye week. Dead center of the season.
  •  Halloween night game…spooky.

Overall, nothing really stands out. It’s a fair, balanced schedule. And it sets up well for the Bears.
