The 2023 NFL schedule has officially been released, and it appears the schedule makers have a lot of faith in Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears making huge strides this year. They play in four primetime games, along with some late-season matchups that have the potential to be flexed into primetime if there are playoff implications.
The season is still a long way away, so let’s go through the schedule week by week for an early record prediction. These predictions are based on the assumption that Justin Fields takes another step forward in Luke Getsy’s offense. I think he’ll play at a Pro Bowl level, and the defense will improve from last year, even if it ends up just an average group.
Without further ado, onto the predictions.
