The Bears released their 2024 schedule in style last night with an ode to Mean Girls, Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Home Alone in their video. While seeing those movie references in the schedule release video is cool, the most important piece of the video is seeing when the Bears play certain opponents.

The Bears' schedule this season is definitely interesting, as they open the season with three straight AFC South opponents, which is strange because out-of-conference games are typically more spread out. Furthermore, they don't play any division opponents until Week 11, giving each division opponent time to jell before their first matchups.

Although the structuring of the schedule may not be what many fans had hoped for, the Bears still have the fourth easiest schedule in the NFL. That will lead to some easy wins with a much-improved Bears roster from a season ago.

Here are three guaranteed wins on the Bears 2024 schedule.

Week 1: Sept. 8 vs. Titans

While this may not be the most exciting Week 1 matchup for Caleb Williams and the Chicago Bears it's definitely one of the more winnable ones. The Titans are coming off a 6-11 campaign with Will Levis quarterbacking the team. Levis was a rookie last season and performed decently, completing 58.4% of his passes for 1808 yards, 8 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions in nine starts last season.

Levis' struggles in the air last season had lots to do with the lack of talent the team had at receiver. The Titans paid Calvin Ridley lots of money this offseason to try and help with that issue. However, Ridley is coming off a season where he only caught 55.8% of his targets, so the addition may not be the help the team thought they were looking for.

The Titans also let superstar running back Derrick Henry go this offseason. Henry has been the backbone of the Titans for the past eight seasons, so who knows what the team's offense will look like with him gone. All of these factors should lead to a Bears' victory to open the season.
