The Bears kick off the season in primetime with a matchup against the new-look Los Angeles Rams. This will be the fourth time the Bears play the Rams since 2018, with Los Angeles winning two of the previous three games. But none of those games came with Matthew Stafford under center for the Rams, who is a much more familiar opponent for the Bears. Stafford has gone 11-9 against the Bears over his 12-year career.

The Bears will also travel to Detroit to play the Lions on Thanksgiving for the third time in four seasons. The Bears have won the last two matchups.

The Packers come to town Week 6 and the Bears travel to Lambeau in Week 14.

The Bears' bye week comes in Week 10, after playing the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football and before hosting the Baltimore Ravens and Lamar Jackson.

Finally, the Bears wrap up the regular season with the Vikings in Minnesota. It will be the sixth time the Bears finish the season against the Vikes in the last eight years. In the previous five games against Minnesota to finish the season, the Bears went 2-3.

In all the Bears are slated for four primetime games, two on Sunday Night Football and two on Monday Night Football.

This is the first time in NFL history that the NFL will play a 17-game regular season. For the Bears, they have a ninth road game.

Single game tickets go on sale Wednesday night at 8:30 p.m.
