The NFL has made the release of their schedule into a real event. No one cares about the release of the MLB, NHL or NBA schedule like they do about the NFL schedule.
Once the schedule gets released people start planning road trips. They start looking ahead to see which highly drafted players they might get to see.
While the Bears schedule was interesting before the draft, it got even more interesting afterwards.
They are already scheduled to play in prime time five times, appearing on Monday Night Football three times. They will also make one appearance each on Sunday and Thursday Night Football.
This season the Bears will take on the AFC South and the NFC West besides their usual six games against their division rivals. They of course will play one team from the other two NFC divisions as well.
So which game have you circled as your road trip? Which games may have playoff ramifications?
