Week 1 brings the NFC champion Falcons to Soldier Field for the season opener. The Bears follow with what could be three potentially tough games, with a trip to Tampa for a game with the Buccaneers in Week 2, a home game against the Steelers in Week 3 and a short week before a Thursday contest against the Packers at Lambeau Field in Week 4. This will mark the seventh straight year with a primetime contest in Green Bay.
The Bears will play 13 of their 16 games on Sundays. The game Week 4 against Green Bay marks the first primetime game, and the following matchup against Minnesota in Week 5 is on a Monday night.
