The Chicago Bears have another primetime game in 2023, bringing the number of leaked national contests to three. This one features a showdown between Justin Fields and Bryce Young, the two quarterbacks at the heart of the blockbuster 2023 NFL draft trade.
Chicago will host the Carolina Panthers in Week 10‘s Thursday night football game.
While the game itself may seem like an uninspiring matchup between two teams in transition, the storylines in the week leading up to it will be fun. Fields vs. Young is the biggest, but the Bears are, in a way, in a no-lose situation. They’re guaranteed to secure better 2024 NFL Draft position as a result of a ‘loss’ in Week 10.
Chicago has the Panthers’ 2024 first-round pick from the deal that sent the 2023 No. 1 overall to the Panthers for WR DJ Moore, the No. 9 overall and a second-round pick in 2023, a 2024 first-round selection, and a second-rounder in 2025.
There’s an NFL Draft silver lining for Bears fans no matter the outcome in Week 10.
Here is the complete Chicago Bears 2023 schedule that’s been leaked so far:
Week 1: vs. Packers
Week 5: at Commanders (Thursday night)
Week 6: vs. Vikings
Week 10: vs. Panthers (Thursday night)
