The information contained on this page has not been made official by the National Football League. The opponents listed for the 2021 season follow the current 16-game, 8 division formula that the NFL has had in place since 2002. This information can change at any time if that formula is altered for any reason, including the addition of a 17th game to club schedules.
Under the NFL scheduling formula, the Bears' annual schedule will be made up of 16 games as follows:
Home and away against each of the other three NFC North opponents (6 games).
All four teams from another NFC division on a rotating three-year cycle (4 games).
All 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 will match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two NFC divisions the Bears are not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place, and fourth-place teams within each conference will be matched in the same way each year.
