It's NFL schedule release day, which means there will be leaks of reports. Chicago's most prolific schedule leaker won't be partaking this year, but the Bears' scheduled games will still hit Twitter ahead of the release.
We won't know if any of this is true until the schedule is officially released at 6:30 p.m. CT, but we'll still keep track. Remember that this isn't official, and don't go booking any flights or hotels for road games just yet.
We do know who the Bears will play, and whether it's home or away.
Here is the schedule based on leaks, so far.
Week 1: at Detroit Lions
Week 2: New York Giants
Week 3: at Atlanta Falcons
Week 4: Indianapolis Colts
Week 5: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (TNF)
Week 6: at Carolina Panthers
Week 7: Los Angeles Rams (MNF)
Week 8: New Orleans Saints
Week 9: at Tennessee Titans
Week 10: Minnesota Vikings (MNF)
Week 11: BYE
Week 12: at Green Bay Packers (SNF)
Week 13: Detroit Lions
Week 14: Houston Texans
Week 15: at Minnesota Vikings
Week 16: at Jacksonville Jaguars
Week 17: Green Bay Packers
6:30 p.m.: Schedule is confirmed by Bears.
4:19 p.m.: We have the entire schedule from a unverified, anonymous Twitter account. We're including simply because it lines up with every other leak we've gotten so far.

2:07 p.m.: One Twitter account is reporting the Jaguars will host the Bears in Week 16, which at first we dismissed but CBS Sports' John Breech says he has been "pretty spot on in the past."

9:07 a.m.: Danny Parkins leaked six games. Most notably, the Bears will open the season against the divisional rival Detroit Lions, which contradicts reports that the season will be structured with NFC and AFC matchups taking place first.
Of these six games, four of them are in prime time: one on "Thursday Night Football" against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, one on "Sunday Night Football" against the rival Green Bay Packers, and two "Monday Night Football" clashes.
