Under the NFL scheduling formula below, every team plays 17 regular-season games with one bye week. The Bears' schedule will consist of the following:

  • 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).
  • The four teams from a division in the AFC on a rotating four-year cycle (4 games).
  • Two intraconference (NFC) 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 NFC divisions the Bears are not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place and fourth-place teams within each division are matched in the same way each year.
  • One interconference (AFC) game based on the prior year's standings on a rotating four-year cycle (1 game). These games match a first-place NFC team against a first-place AFC team in a division that the team is not otherwise scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place and fourth-place teams in each division are matched in the same way each year. The home conference for this game will rotate each season.

Beginning in 2022, all 32 clubs will play internationally at least once every eight years.
