Chicago Bears Announced Their 2018 Schedule
It's an exciting time of year for Chicago Bears fans with the release of their 2018 schedule.
As a longtime Chicago Bear season ticket holder, I always look forward to seeing the new schedule. Of course, there's lots of hope for a great season.
Here's how 2018 stacks up for the "Monsters of the Midway."
- Sun 9/9 7:20pm at Green Bay Packers
- Season opener in Green Bay during primetime, not to be negative but I'm going to call that a loss.
- Mon 9/17 7:15pm vs Seattle Seahawks
- Home opener on Monday night football, a new coach with lots of pressure. There's loss number two.
- Sun 9/23 3:25pm at Arizona Cardinals
- The Cards are rebuilding, so after going 0-2 here's the first win.
- Sun 9/30 noon vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- The first home win for the rookie head coach, the Bucs are just bad.
- Bye Week
- Sun 10/14 noon at Miami Dolphins
- Another bad team, I'm thinking a win coming off the bye week.
- Sun 10/21 noon vs New England Patriots
- Not just a loss, but I'm calling a blowout.
- Sun 10/28 noon vs New York
- They will bounce back after getting crushed.
- Sun 11/4 noon at Buffalo Bills
- It will be a struggle in a hostile environment, a loss for the team.
- Sun 11/11 noon vs Detroit Lions
- Division rival games are always tough but the Bears win this one with the home field advantage.
- Sun 11/18 noon vs Minnesota Vikings
- Vikings are too good so it's a loss for the good guys.
- Thu 11/22 11:30am at Detroit Lions
- Thanksgiving Day in the Motor City, not a chance.
- Sun 12/2 noon at New York Giants
- This team from NY is far away from competing, I'll take the win here.
- Sun 12/9 noon vs Los Angeles Rams
- The Rams are really good, not going to be fun for Chicago.
- Sun 12/16 noon vs Green Bay Packers
- The Bears will steal this one from Aaron Rodgers
- Sun 12/23 3:05pm at San Francisco 49'ers
- Much improved 49'er team, Bears lose on the road.
- Sun 12/30 noon at Minnesota Vikings
- Wrapping up 2018 with a loss.
My prediction for the 2018 Bears is 7-9. Not great but much better than the last couple of seasons.
