The Bears on Monday launched their third annual Schedule Prediction Challenge brought to you by United Airlines.
The challenge, where fans attempt to correctly guess the appropriate Bears opponent and bye week for each of the 17 weeks of the 2017 regular season, includes the largest sweepstakes prize in club history. Fans who correctly guess all 17 weeks of the Bears 2017 schedule will have a chance to win two tickets to every Bears home and away contest during the season.
The prize includes two round-trip United Airlines flights and hotel accommodations to each away game city and $500 spending cash allowance per regular-season road game ($4,000 total).
Fans can enter the Schedule Prediction Challenge brought to you by United Airlines at ChicagoBears.com/prediction or through the Chicago Bears mobile app. There's a maximum of five entries per person. The contest runs through March 31 at 3 p.m. (CT).
In addition, 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 and two tickets to one Bears regular-season road game along with two round-trip United Airlines flights and hotel accommodations to that road host city plus $500 spending cash.
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.
