With the conclusion of the 2021 regular season Sunday, the Bears’ 2022 opponents are now finalized. Here’s who they’ll play at home and on the road:
• The combined 2021 records of the Bears’ 2022 opponents is 135-152-2 (.471). The combined 2020 records of the Bears’ 2021 opponents was 149-122-1 (.550).
• The Bears and the rest of the NFC North will play all four teams in the NFC East and AFC East in 2022.
• Three opponents were determined based on the 2021 standings. Because the Bears finished third in the NFC North, they’ll face three teams that were third in their respective divisions: The Texans (AFC South), 49ers (NFC West) and Falcons (NFC South).
• The Bears have nine home games and eight road contests in 2022 because all NFC teams have an extra home contest in even-numbered years and an additional road game in odd-numbered years.
