How are opponents determined?

The scheduling formula guarantees that all teams play each other on a regular, rotating basis.

Under the formula, the Bears' 16 opponents will be as follows:

  • Home and away against three NFC North opponents (6 games).
  • The four teams from another division within the NFC on a rotating three-year cycle (4 games).
  • The four teams from a division in the AFC on a rotating four-year cycle (4 games).
  • Two intraconference games based on the prior year’s standings (2 games). These games match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place, and fourth-place teams in a conference are matched in the same way each year.
