While there's only one week left in the 2023 season there are reasons to be excited about next year's Chicago Bears team.

Maybe it's because I'm a diehard Chicago Cubs fan but next year might be the year for the Bears.

They seemed to have turned the corner, and I'm fairly optimistic the arrow is pointing up for next year's iteration of Chicago Bears football. Justin Fields might just be the guy, they've got a good D and the Bears have the #1 pick in the draft so there are plenty of positives.

Even more exciting, we already know plenty of the teams the Bears will be playing in 2024. Besides the obvious twice-a-year head-to-head with Minnesota, Green Bay, and Detroit, fbschedules.com has the Bears hosting the Seattle Seahawks, Los Angeles Rams, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Tennessee Titans.

They will also be heading to Houston to play the Texans, Indianapolis for the Colts, and Arizona to challenge the Cardinals. However, the most intriguing road game will be the 49ers in Santa Clara.

They are my current favorite in the NFC to head to the Super Bowl and considering the Bears have finishing this season with such a flourish there's a good chance we see 49ers-Bears in prime time on either a Sunday or Monday night.

There are three undermined games, as the NFL needs to announce who the Bears will play from the NFC East, South, and AFC East. After the season wraps, we'll have a better idea.
