With the Chicago Bears 2020 regular season schedule officially out, what are the toughest games on the schedule?
All of Thursday, everyone was focused on one thing: When the Chicago Bears 2020 schedule would release. Since the end of the 2019 season, we’ve known who the Bears will play but now, we know when the Bears will play them, as well as what times.
Right off the bat, when looking at the Bears schedule, what’s very clear is that the first four weeks are all very winnable games. While it’s never easy to win games in the NFL, the Bears have improved in multiple ways this offseason and appear to be ready to get back to winning in 2020.
Every year, in the NFL, one of the biggest things to examine regarding any team’s schedule is what the hardest games are. For the Bears, things are no different due to the fact that they’re set to play teams like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New Orleans Saints, and Los Angeles Rams.
The reality for the Bears is that while the schedule in some ways looks like it’s easier than 2019’s, a key thing to keep in mind is that the Bears aren’t as bad as people think. Even with key starters such as Akiem Hicks, Danny Trevathan, and Roquan Smith injured, the defense continued to be one of the best in the NFL.
Then there’s the offense, which struggled but underwent a massive makeover this offseason in terms of new faces at quarterback, tight end, as well as on the coaching staff with new coaches at quarterback, tight end, and offensive line, and then a new offensive coordinator.
Now that the Bears 2020 schedule is out, what are the hardest games that the Bears will have to play in 2020? Let’s examine some games and breakdown why they’ll be tough for the Bears in 2020, as well as what the implications could be.
