These teams are the elite and the Chicago Bears need their best to have a chance.

4. Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks will always be in the elite mix as long as Russell Wilson is there. There were some whispers about him being traded, including to the Bears, during the offseason. That seems to have all been brushed under the table for another year and that makes them dangerous.

The Bears playing them in Seattle makes it extra tough as it is one of the hardest stadiums to play in as a visitor. Look for the Seahawks to be considered Super Bowl contenders yet again despite playing in that monster of a division.

3. Los Angeles Rams

Yep. The Bears play the Los Angeles Rams again. The cards keep stacking up where they meet in the regular season. You’d have to think that a decent rivalry is starting to build between the core players. Either way, that Rams roster is great. They have a Super Bowl-caliber defense and an offense that can be scary at times. Replacing Jared Goff with Matthew Stafford makes them even more of a threat.

They were in the Super Bowl just a few years ago with Goff so it is scary to imagine what they might do with Stafford. They have to be considered a favorite in the NFC. The Bears play them in Week One on Sunday Night Football which should be exciting but it is also really scary.
