With 2017 over, and plenty of changes coming in the offseason for the Chicago Bears, there is hope the franchise can quickly turn things around in 2018 not unlike what the Los Angeles Rams did under Sean McVay this year.
And what is the best way to forecast how the Bears will fare in 2018? By seeing who they will play. Take a look at the opponents making up the Bears' 2018 schedule:
Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Los Angeles Rams, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, New York Jets, Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Arizona Cardinals, Buffalo Bills, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants, San Francisco 49ers.

Sure the schedule looks tough, but there is reason for some optimism. As someone pointed out on the Bears' Instagram post revealing their opponents, these are the exact teams the Bears faced during the 2006 season while on their way to the Super Bowl.
