The 2013 NFL schedule will not be announced until April, but the League has announced who each team’s opponents will be. In addition to their own division, the Bears will play the NFC East and the AFC North. Their other two in-conference opponents, based on 2012 division placement, will be the New Orleans Saints and the St. Louis Rams. Here’s the full home/away list:
- 2013 home opponents: Lions, Packers, Vikings, Cowboys, Giants, Ravens, Bengals, Saints
- 2013 road opponents: Lions, Packers, Vikings, Eagles, Redskins, Browns, Steelers, Rams
My initial thought is that the road schedule doesn’t look all that intimidating. But, as is often evidenced, it’s hard to predict who will be playing their best ball from week to week, let alone from season to season.
