Chicago Bears 2024 Preseason Schedule

Week 1 (8/1): vs. Texans, Thursday, 7:00 PM


Week 2 (8/10): @ Bills, Saturday, noon


Week 3 (8/17): vs. Bengals, Saturday, noon


Week 4 (8/22): @ Chiefs, Thursday, 7:00 PM


Here are my takeaways from the release of the 2024 Chicago Bears schedule.


Week One: September 8th Vs. Titans

Week 1: Bears vs Titans
Week 1: Bears vs Titans

The Bears start the 2024 season at home against the Titans, allowing Caleb Williams to start his rookie year with an easier matchup. This should be an easy game for the Bears as their defense should have its way with Will Levis. The Titans did sign cornerback L'Darius Sneed in free agency, so watching him go against the new-look Bears' wide receiver room will be a fascinating battle.


Prediction: Win, 1-0


Week Two: September 15th At Texans (SNF)

Week 2: Bears  @ Texans
Week 2: Bears @ Texans

After the lighter start in week one, things heat up quickly for the Bears when they travel to face Houston during Sunday Night Football. This game could start a fierce rivalry between two of the league's youngest and most talented quarterbacks. I think the Bears' defense will keep them in this game for the first three quarters but the Texans will begin to pull away behind the more experienced quarterback in C.J. Stroud.


Prediction: Loss, 1-1


Week Three: September 22nd At Colts

Week 3: Bears @ Colts
Week 3: Bears @ Colts

Matt Eberflus is headed back to the place where he spent three seasons as the defensive coordinator. This will be a tough matchup for the offense given that the Colts have a strong defensive line. The mismatch of the Bears' wide receiver core against the Colts secondary will be the difference here.


Prediction: Win, 2-1


Week Four: September 29th Vs. Rams

Week 4: Bears vs Rams
Week 4: Bears vs Rams

Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua are one of the leagues best 'one-two' punches at wide receiver along with Matt Stafford still playing at a high level. Add a strong running game led by Kyren Williams, and the Rams are too much for the Bears' to overcome with its questionable defensive line.


Prediction: Loss, 2-2


Week Five: October 6th Vs. Panthers

Week 5: Bears vs Panthers
Week 5: Bears vs Panthers

Following the most lopsided draft trade in history, the Bears and Panthers meet again. Last time Chicago and Carolina faced off, the Bears narrowly won. This season, it's going to much different. Bears win, and they win big.


Prediction: Win, 3-2


Week Six: October 13th Vs. Jaguars (London)

Week 6: Bears vs Jaguars (London)
Week 6: Bears vs Jaguars (London)

Jacksonville traveled to London last season, which will give the Jaguars the advantage here. The defense keeps this close, but the offense can't make the necessary plays. The Bears fall to an even 3-3.


Prediction: Loss, 3-3


Week Seven: October 20th BYE Week

Week Seven: BYE Week

The Bears get the chance to recoup after a trip to London and get extra time to prepare for the Washington Commanders.


Week Eight: October 27th At Commanders

Week 8: Bears @ Commanders
Week 8: Bears @ Commanders

The Bears travel to Washington after their BYE week and go against the new look Commanders led by second overall pick Jayden Daniels. As the old saying goes "defense travels" and I don't expect anything different here. The Commanders have major holes on the offensive line and Montez Sweat will wreck havoc upon the rookie quarterback.


Prediction: Win, 4-3


Week Nine: November 3rd At Cardinals

Week 9: Bears @ Cardinals
Week 9: Bears @ Cardinals

This is a Caleb Williams game. The Cardinals don't have a strong pass rush which will put a strain on the Cardinals secondary. That secondary will struggle to cover the combination of D.J. Moore, Keenan Allen, Rome Odunze, Cole Kmet, and D'Andre Swift out of the backfield. Caleb Williams goes for 400 yards in the air, with three passing touchdowns, and one score on the ground.


Prediction: Win, 5-3


Week 10: November 10th Vs Patriots

Week 10: Bears vs Patriots
Week 10: Bears vs Patriots

Another rookie quarterback matchup, this time it's third overall pick Drake Maye. While the Patriots are in a rebuilding year under new head coach Jerod Mayo, their defense is still legit. The Bears win a close one.


Prediction: Win, 6-3


Week 11: November 17th Vs Packers

Week 11: Bears vs Packers
Week 11: Bears vs Packers

In what has been one of the most lopsided rivalries in the NFL, with the Packers winning the last 13 of 14 games, the Chicago Bears finally break through. Caleb Williams and Jordan Love go back and forth all game but Williams leads the Bears into field goal range where Cairo Santos drills a 38 yard field goal to give the Bears ever elusive win against Green Bay.


Prediction: Win, 7-3


Week 12: November 24th Vs Vikings

Week 12: Bears vs Vikings
Week 12: Bears vs Vikings

The Vikings have one of the most talented rosters in the league and a strong coaching staff led by Kevin O'Connell. On the other hand, I'm not completely sold on rookie quarterback J.J. McCarthy. McCarthy struggles to find his footing against the Bears defense and tosses an interception to Tyrique Stevenson.


Prediction: Win, 8-3


Week 13: November 28th At Lions (Thanksgiving)

Week 13: Bears @ Lions (Thanksgiving)
Week 13: Bears @ Lions (Thanksgiving)

The Bears are back on the road for a Thanksgiving Day meeting with the Lions. The Bears defense has had Jared Goff's number in the last two games, forcing five interceptions. But the Lions have a good roster. The Bears' win streak will end at five games but this one will come down to the last minute.


Prediction: Loss, 8-4


Week 14: December 8th At 49ers

Week 14: Bears @ 49ers
Week 14: Bears @ 49ers

The Bears travel to Santa Clara to face the defending NFC Championship San Francisco 49ers. The Niners have one of the leagues most complete rosters having stars on both the offense and the defense. The Bears roster has vastly improved this off-season but they aren't ready to win these sort of games.


Prediction: Loss, 8-5


Week 15: December 16th At Vikings (MNF)

Week 15: Bears @ Vikings (MNF)
Week 15: Bears @ Vikings (MNF)

The Bears finish a three-game road trip in Minnesota with a Monday Night Football matchup. These teams are so evenly matched that it'll come down to the two rookie quarterbacks, which Caleb Williams holds the edge over J.J. McCarthy.


Prediction: Win, 9-5


Week 16: December 22nd Vs. Lions

Week 16: Bears vs Lions
Week 16: Bears vs Lions

After the Thanksgiving day game, the Bears and Lions meet again. Except this time it's in Soldier Field. The Bears avenge their Week 13 loss with Keenan Allen going off for 150 yards and a score.


Prediction: Win, 10-5


Week 17: December 26th Vs. Seahawks (TNF)

Week 17: Bears vs Seahawks
Week 17: Bears vs Seahawks

The Bears host the Seahawks for a Thursday Night Football game between two defensive-minded head coaches in Matt Eberflus and Mike McDonald. This one will have the feel of an old schooled game where teams will emphasize the run game and encourage strong defense.


Prediction: Win, 11-5


Week 18: January 5th At Packers

Week 18: Bears @ Packers
Week 18: Bears @ Packers

The Bears end their regular season with a trip to Lambeau Field, where Chicago has lost eight consecutive games. Fortunately for the Bears, even with a loss they would still make the playoffs.


Prediction: Loss, 11-6


Final regular season record: 11-6, seventh seed in the NFC.


Other Takeaways From Bears' Schedule


Learning Curve

Caleb Williams is a highly regarded rookie quarterback, but he still has a learning curve to navigate. Luckily for the Bears and their new quarterback, they will face the Tennessee Titans, who will be led by a new head coach, Brian Callahan, in what is likely to be a rebuilding year.


Ideal Bye Week

The Chicago Bears are scheduled to travel to London in week six to face off against the Jacksonville Jaguars and have chosen to take their bye week in week seven.


The NFL gives the teams traveling the option to have the bye week then or not. After that, the Bears will turn their attention to a week eight matchup, traveling to play the Washington Commanders.


Late Divisional Start

The Bears will face their first divisional opponent in week 11 when they take on the Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field.


Additionally, six of the Bears' final eight opponents are divisional rivals. The Bears will host the Minnesota Vikings in week 12 and then travel to Minnesota in week 15. They will also travel to face the Lions in week 13 on Thanksgiving, and the Lions will come to Chicago in week 16. The Bears will conclude their season and divisional schedule in week 18 by traveling to Lambeau Field to face the Packers.
