When the NFL schedule comes out, it’s fun to see which teams will play each other. Sometimes, though, it reminds us of when teams made big mistakes. Take the Carolina Panthers and Chicago Bears game in Week 5, for example.

It’s a showdown between two top draft picks.

The Panthers and Bears aren’t the best teams right now. They’re kind of in the middle and not many people think they’ll win a lot. But in Week 5, something big is happening. Bryce Young and Caleb Williams, two amazing football players picked first in 2023 and 2024, are going to play against each other for the first time.

Carolina fans can’t forget March 10, 2023. That’s when their team traded a lot to get Young. They gave the Bears so much, including the chance to pick Williams next year. It’s a day that stings for the Panthers’ supporters.

In the trade, the Panthers sent D.J. Moore, a really good player, and some important draft picks to the Bears just to get Young. Now, the upcoming game might make Panthers fans face some tough truths.

The NFL has set the stage for a bit of drama with this matchup.

These two quarterbacks, Young and Williams, will be linked forever. Their careers will always be compared, especially if Young doesn’t get better after a tough first year.

It’s hard to believe Young didn’t do well, and now the Panthers have the first pick again. Fans must be thinking, “What if we waited for Williams instead?” But, no matter what, they’ll be watching when the teams play on October 6 at Soldier Field.

The game is set for 1 p.m. ET, and it’s sure to be a memorable one.
