28. Chicago Bears

Unfortunately for the Chicago Bears, the team will be forced to play five preseason games this summer since they were chosen to participate in this year’s Pro Football Hall of Fame Game, which seems like an honor, but also can be annoying to deal with at the same time. Last year, it was unfair for some of the criticism Mitch Trubisky received under center since the Bears didn’t exactly do the best at building a reliable offense around him, but all of that is expected to change in 2018.

Thanks to a successful offseason in which Chicago brought in new weapons for Trubisky to work with like Allen Robinson and Trey Burton, Trubisky is expected to see a major difference playing in Chicago’s offense. And when seeing how the North Carolina product is coming off a decent performance against a top defense in the Denver Broncos, the Bears have even more reason to be excited about Trubisky’s sophomore campaign.

Matt Nagy’s presence during his first season as head coach in Chicago is expected to help this offense reach a new level in 2018, especially if he continues to help the development process with Trubisky. There are some that believe the Bears could be a surprise contender in the NFC, but first let’s see how September looks before making that assumption.
