NFL.com projecting a dismal season for Bears in 2022

Another day, another brutal prediction for the Chicago Bears’ 2022 season. This time, it’s from NFL.com’s Cynthia Frelund, who simulated all 272 regular-season games 75,000 times to reach her projected win totals. The result isn’t pleasant for the Bears.

According to Frelund, the Bears will only win six games in 2022 (6.1, to be exact).

“While my models suggest the Bears won’t be overly punished for not adequately addressing their O-line issues this offseason, they have other questions marks (receiver, pass rusher) that could impact their ability to take full advantage of having a top-five schedule in terms of favorability,” Frelund wrote. “Fun fact: Two of their games — Week 6 (Thursday) vs. Washington and Week 7 at New England (Monday) — are tipping-point contests for their opponents‘ chances of making the playoffs.”

Fortunately, NFL games are decided on the field, not by computers.

Still, it’s become increasingly difficult to ignore the pessimism surrounding the Bears’ chances at a successful 2022 campaign.
