The Bears on Monday launched their annual Schedule Prediction Challenge brought to you by United Airlines.
Fans who correctly guess the opponents the Bears will face and the team's bye week for all 18 weeks of the 2023 regular season will have a chance to win two tickets to every Bears regular-season home and away game, two round-trip United Airlines flights and hotel accommodations to each road game, and $500 spending cash for each regular-season road game ($4,000 total).
If no one correctly predicts the schedule, a second-prize winner will be selected based on a scoring system. That individual will win two tickets to one Bears regular-season home game, two tickets to one Bears regular-season away game, and two round-trip United Airlines flights, hotel accommodations and $500 spending cash to the road game they attend.
The scoring system will award 10 points for a correct division game pick (must correctly pick the week, opponent and location); seven points for a correct non-division game pick (must correctly pick the week and the opponent); five points for correctly picking the bye week; three points for a partially correct division game pick (must correctly pick the opponent and week but not the location) and one point for an incorrect game pick that is only one week away from the correct date, either one week before or one week after.
Upon entry, users will receive an email confirmation with a link that will tally their score after the schedule is officially announced by the NFL. The schedule is expected to be released in early-to-mid May.
Fans can enter the Schedule Prediction Challenge brought to you by United Airlines at ChicagoBears.com/prediction or through the Chicago Bears Official App brought to you by Verizon through Friday, April 28 at 3 p.m. (CT). There is a maximum of five entries permitted per person.
