The Chicago Bears 2010 schedule begins against the Detroit Lions at home. This The Chicago Bears 2010 schedule appears also has a really tough stretch from weeks two through four, so it might be tough for the Bears to start 2010 with an impressive record. It all gets started on Sunday, September 12 when they host the rebuilding Detroit Lions though, and it gives the Bears a chance to jump out to a quick 1-0 record in the 2010 NFC North standings. That might be very important in a division that also includes the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers.
Among the notable games that the Bears will have to play in 2010 are two games against Minnesota and Green Bay, and one against the Dallas Cowboys, the New England Patriots, and the New York Giants. Then they play against the New York Jets in week 16 of the schedule, so nobody is going to call this schedule an easy one for the 2010 Chicago Bears. Those seven games will all be tough, so almost every other game becomes a must-win for the Bears. That includes the home opener against the Lions, so a lot will be put on starting quarterback Jay Cutler right out of the gate.
The Bears finished a disappointing 2009 season with a 7-9 record, and were only able to score 327 points during the year. They will have to play much better on offense this time around, and they get their first shot against what was one of the weakest defenses a year ago. Ndamukong Suh is roaming the defensive line for Detroit though, so the Bears will have to watch out for him and give Cutler a lot of protection early. Week 1 of the NFL schedule is ready to roll, and even though it’s early, the Bears could be dependent on starting out 1-0 if they want any chance at the postseason.
