Bears projected to have second-easiest strength of schedule in 2022

The Chicago Bears are coming off a disappointing 6-11 season, which resulted in the firings of both general manager and head coach. With a new regime in place with Ryan Poles and Matt Eberflus, the hope is there’s a brighter future in store.

While it’s only April, it’s never too soon to look ahead to the 2022 season. Considering some of the roster turnover this offseason, there’s not a lot of confidence that the Bears can make a splash. But an easy strength of schedule should make things more bearable.

According to Warren Sharp of Sharp Football Analysis, the Bears will play the second-easiest strength of schedule in 2022.

The Bears will face the AFC East and NFC East next season, which includes home games against the Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins, as well as away games against the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots and New York Jets.

With the Bears projected to finish third in the NFC North, they’ll also face the same-place finisher in the NFC South (Atlanta Falcons) and NFC West (San Francisco 49ers). With that additional 17th game, they’ll host the AFC South same-place finisher (Houston Texans).
