Chicago Bears - 2022 NFL Season Preview & Win Total Prediction

The Chicago Bears come into the 2022 season led by a rookie head coach and a young quarterback looking for guidance. Chicago has plenty of tools in their repertoire but will need solid production from Justin Fields and new head coach Matt Eberflus to have a productive season.

Justin fields will still be under quarterback for the Chicago Bears this season looking to improve on a mediocre season a year ago. Offensive coordinator Luke Getsy is implementing a system for his young talented quarterback to thrive in. Fields will have the ball in his hand often as he will be the key for Chicago.

Offensively Chicago has several different weapons that will be in use all season as second year receiver Cole Kmet is he expected to step into a bigger role. Kmet and Darnell Mooney will lead Chicago in receiving this season, while Khalil Herbert and David Montgomery will chew up yards out of the backfield.

With Chicago under new management the defense will be switching to a 4-3 as opposed to the 3-4 from years past to get more pressure on the quarterback. Khalil Mack and Robert Quinn will be the motors of the Chicago defense as the team's top pass rushers.
