It’s June, and there are still a few weeks until Training Camp begins, but hey, why not go through an early record prediction?

Expectations are high given the transformational off-season, but there needs to be a touch of realism. Rookie quarterback, new offensive coaches and scheme, and significant roster changes.

The Bears are going to be good, but growing pains should be expected.

Week 1: Titans @ Bears

The Titans are a bad football team that just moved on from a great coach in Mike Vrabel and lost the only pulse they had offensively in Derrick Henry. Week 1 flukes are very much a thing, and we’ve seen some wild results in the past couple of years – but this is as good of a matchup as you can ask for to get things going if you’re Matt Eberflus, Shane Waldron, and Caleb Williams.

Give me the Bears, comfortably.

  • Record: 1-0

Week 2: Bears @ Texans

A significantly more exciting matchup than the past week, taking on a popular AFC dark horse choice – CJ Stroud and the Houston Texans. DeMeco Ryans and Bobby Slowik have really turned things around in Houston, and CJ Stroud had a stunning rookie year. Perhaps I am in the minority here, but a slow start / second-year regression wouldn’t be shocking with the Texans.

It’s a dogfight, but the Bears have the better defense, and that’s the difference in this one.

  • Record: 2-0

Week 3: Bears @ Colts

If Anthony Richardson is healthy, the Colts can be a dangerous squad. While I doubt Richardson can play through an entire season, unfortunately, the Bears find them in Week 3.

  • Record: 2-1

Week 4: Rams @ Bears

I might be higher on the Rams than most, and it’s mainly because of Matthew Stafford. Sean McVay, with an improved younger roster and a healthy Stafford – they’re a playoff team. I’ll take the Rams in a tough loss for the Bears at home.

  • Record: 2-2

Week 5: Panthers @ Bears

The Carolina Panthers and Bryce Young? Lol.

  • Record: 3-2

Week 6: Jaguars @ Bears (London)

Bears will take on Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars in London heading into the bye week. I like the Jaguars to have a bounce-back season, but the Bears take this one.

  • Record: 4-2

Week 8: Bears @ Commanders

The Washington Commanders and Jayden Daniels. Lol x2.

  • Record: 5-2

Week 9: Bears @ Cardinals

The Cardinals may have added Marvin Harrison Jr, but their problem is Kyler Murray, and he isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Bears win easily.

  • Record: 6-2

Week 10: Patriots @ Bears

The Patriots are rebuilding and heading into their post-Belichick era. While I think Drake Maye individually will be exciting to watch, the team as a whole…will not be. Bears.

  • Record: 7-2

Week 11: Packers @ Bears

No one is going to like this prediction, but when it comes to beating the Packers…I’ll believe it when I see it. There are going to be a few gut punches along the way, and this will be one of them.

  • Record: 7-3

Week 12: Vikings @ Bears

The Vikings are going to regress, and anyone who believes otherwise is delusional. Kirk Cousins had a LOT on his shoulders and made this team look better than they are. Bears.

  • Record: 8-3

Week 13: Bears @ Lions

The Lions are the favorite to win the NFC North, obviously for good reason. They are only getting better, and it will be TOUGH to steal one in Detroit. I’ll take the Lions.

  • Record: 8-4

Week 14: Bears @ 49ers

The 49ers are the best team in the NFC and co-favorites with the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl. This game will be competitive, but the Bears aren’t on that level yet.

  • Record: 8-5

Week 15: Bears @ Vikings

Again, the Vikings are not going to be a great football team. I think the Bears will easily sweep the season series.

  • Record: 9-5

Week 16: Lions @ Bears

This game is going to be a monstrous factor in the division standings. While the result may not be what Bears fans want – the positive direction the franchise is heading towards will be made clear.

  • Record: 9-6

Week 17: Seahawks @ Bears

The Seahawks are heading into their post-Pete Carroll era, and while they have a sneakily good roster, the Bears will have the better quarterback in Caleb Williams.

Geno Smith’s career resurgence has been fun, but I’d be surprised if he was still the starting quarterback at this point of the season. Bears.

  • Record: 10-6

Week 18: Bears @ Packers

Week 18 matchups can be hard to predict without knowing playoff stakes, etc., but I believe the NFC North will send three teams into the playoffs this season

The Packers will have already clinched a playoff spot, and the Bears will find themselves in a “win and you’re in” situation. They’ll get it done in Lambeau.

Final Record: 11-6
