2016 Chicago Bears schedule released
The full 2016 NFL schedule is finally here.
Fans waited all day on Thursday for the full release, but we now know the schedule and who will be playing when next season.
The Chicago Bears will open up the 2016 season on the road against the Houston Texans on September 11. Following that game, the Bears will play their first home game in week two when they host the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football.
They will play at Green Bay again on Thursday Night Football on October 20 when they travel to Lambeau Field. The game will be part of the NFL’s color rush jersey series. Their only home game against rival Green Bay will come December 18 in what could be a big game for division purposes.
This season the team has a total of 4 primetime games compared to just two last season. That includes a Halloween game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Check out the full schedule below:
For those of you keeping track at home… We have 2 MNF, 1 TNF, & 1 SNF at the @dallascowboys.
