Just a few more days football fans.
The Chicago Bears are getting set to host the Green Bay Packers to kickoff the NFL season on Sunday as they open up the John Fox era. The Bears went through a little bit of a front office switch up this offseason, firing Phil Emery and Marc Trestman, then hiring Ryan Pace and John Fox.
On Sunday we will get our first taste of what to expect this season and it will come against the Bears hated rival from up North. The Packers have had the Bears number the last few years and even have won three straight. Now the Bears are looking to get off on the right foot in what will be a difficult opening three games this season.
