Strength of schedule for all 32 NFL teams: Easiest and toughest slates in 2023

The NFL will officially unveil its 2023 schedule on Thursday evening, where we’ll find out exactly when each of the 32 teams will face their opponents.

The Chicago Bears will face the AFC West and NFC South, which includes home games against the Carolina Panthers, Las Vegas Raiders and Atlanta Falcons, as well as away games against the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers and New Orleans Saints.

With Chicago finishing fourth in the NFC North, they’ll also face the same-place finisher in the NFC East and NFC West. With that additional 17th game, they’ll face the AFC North same-place finisher, Cleveland Browns, on the road. As always, they’ll face their NFC North rivals twice.

But where exactly does Chicago’s schedule rank in terms of difficulty when compared to the rest of the league?
