The Bears on Wednesday 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 2021 regular season will have a chance to win $25,000.
A second-prize winner will be selected based on a scoring system. That individual will win two first-class, round-trip airline tickets to any domestic location in the 48 contiguous United States.
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.
Fans can enter the Schedule Prediction Challenge brought to you by United Airlines at ChicagoBears.com/prediction or through the Chicago Bears Official App. There's a maximum of five entries per person. The weeklong contest runs through Wednesday, April 28 at 3 p.m. (CT).
