The 1943 Chicago Bears season was their 24th regular season and 8th postseason completed in the National Football League. The club posted a 8-1-1 record under temporary co-coaches Hunk Anderson and Luke Johnsos. Angry off their denied chance at pro football immortality, the Bears won the Western Division yet again and defeated the defending champion Washington Redskins title game to claim their sixth league title, and third in four years establishing themselves as the NFL Dynasty of the 1940s.
