The Chicago Bears will need to beat teams like this to have a shot at the playoffs.

13. Cincinnati Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals could be trash or could be awesome. They are hoping to see a healthy Joe Burrow lead them to the promised land over the next few years but it is hard to see them doing it in 2021. That is because the three other teams in the division are looking like they could be pretty good. The Bears need to take care of business when they play the Bengals.

12.  New York Giants

The Chicago Bears handled the New York Giants in 2020 but it wasn’t easy. They almost blew the game and this time they will likely have to face Saquon Barkley for the entire game. Daniel Jones is a question at quarterback but with all of the weapons, they have on offense they should be able to make some noise this season. Some people might have them as a sleeper this year but they are going to need to prove it first. However,  the fact that a team this good is one of the weakest the Bears will play is tough news.

11. Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings are nothing to write home about anymore. It seems like their Super Bowl window is closed for now and they have some work to do to prove it is open again. Kirk Cousins is not their answer at quarterback long term so it will be interesting to see how things work out for them. Sort of like the Vikings, Bengals, and Giants, they could surprise a lot of people and climb the list but this is where they find themselves right now.
