WEEK ONE – Sunday September 9th
Chicago Bears vs. Indianapolis Colts
Love the 1 PM Sunday start. Like getting to open my Christmas gifts first thing. It is an opening week must win. You can’t lose to the worst team in football at home and expect a big season. Especially when you’re headed to…
WEEK TWO – Thursday September 13th
Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers
…your division rival on three days rest. I find this scheduling to be lunacy by the league. Why would you compromise this rivalry? Let them play on a midseason Sunday, in midseason form, and don’t soak this rivalry for your network’s personal good.
WEEK THREE – Sunday September 23rd
Chicago Bears vs. St. Louis Rams
Juiceless. But I like two incredibly winnable games surrounding the Lambeau Thursday nighter.
WEEK FOUR – Monday October 1
MNF: Chicago Bears at Dallas Cowboys
A great Monday night game that will do a huge rating.
WEEK FIVE – Sunday October 7th
Chicago Bears at Jacksonville Jaguars
My brother lives in Jax and he was taking me to this game. But this was the only weekend the game could not fall on.
WEEK SIX – Sunday October 14th
WEEK SEVEN – Monday October 22nd
MNF: Chicago Bears vs. Detroit Lions
Payback, perhaps, for forcing the Bears into Detroit for one of the most hostile games of the 2011 season.
WEEK EIGHT – Sunday October 28th
Chicago Bears vs. Carolina Panthers
Greg Olsen Bowl II
WEEK NINE – Sunday November 4th
Chicago Bears at Tennessee Titans
A game I have absolutely nothing to say about.
WEEK TEN – Sunday November 11th
Sunday Night: Chicago Bears vs. Houston Texans
I hope some of these Bears remember the whupping Schaub and Johnson put on them a few years back, forcing them out of the playoffs on the final week of the regular season.
WEEK ELEVEN – Monday November 19th
MNF: Chicago Bears at San Francisco 49ers
Five primetime games for the Bears. I guess I’m not the only one in the football world who thinks they’re going to be fun to watch.
WEEK TWELVE – Sunday November 25th
Chicago Bears vs. Minnesota Vikings
Late time to see Minnesota for first time.
WEEK THIRTEEN – Sunday December 2nd
Chicago Bears vs. Seattle Seahawks
I hate playing the Seahawks. They just don’t seem to mind playing in Soldier Field.
WEEK FOURTEEN – Sunday December 9th
Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings
And then you have to see them twice in three weeks? Odd.
WEEK FIFTEEN – Sunday December 16th
Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers
Could this game decide a division title? I think so.
WEEK SIXTEEN – Sunday December 23rd
Chicago Bears at Arizona Cardinals
Weird time to be trekking out to the desert, huh?
WEEK SEVENTEEN – Sunday December 30th
Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions
Would rather this game be at Soldier Field but I don’t fear the Lions anywhere.
This will be followed by two home playoff victories and a Super Bowl title in New Orleans.
