Preseason Week 1:
Friday, August 9 - Chicago Bears at Carolina Panthers 7:00p (CT)
It should be interesting to see how the new look Bears offensive line is starting to shape up. Last year the Panthers defense recorded 39 sacks, which was good for 9th best in the NFL.
Preseason Week 2:
Thursday, August 15 - San Diego Chargers at Chicago Bears ESPN 7:00p (CT)
The Bears will get to show off the Marc Trestman offense to a nationally televised audience. Bears fans will get to see how new Charger middle linebacker Manti Te'o is settling in.
Preseason Week 3:
Friday, August 23 - Chicago Bears at Oakland Raiders 9:00p (CT)
The all important third preseason game will be a late one for the fans in Central time zone. It's a Friday night in Chicago, so what else is there to do? The new coaching regime in Oakland will be breaking in a new quarterback.
Preseason Week 4:
Thursday, August 29 - Cleveland Browns at Chicago Bears 7:00p (CT)
Yes, the Browns again to cap of the preseason. If your wondering why it always seems to be these two to finish up preseason, that's because it's an inter-conference match-up of close proximity.
