Looks like a tough start for Andrew Luck. Oh well, that's why it sucks to be a rookie. Looking at 4-5 primetime match-ups, it's safe to say the NFL thinks the Bears are going to be contenders...or at least thinks their opponents will be.
We'll go in-depth with plenty of previews of these games over the summer, so as always, make sure to check back at WCG. But what's your first take on this schedule?
