Bears Release 2018 Regular Season Schedule

The Chicago Bears will kick off the start of the Matt Nagy era against their oldest rivals on a national stage when they take on the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football on Sept. 9. Bears second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky will get his first Lambeau Field start in Week One of the 2018 season.

The NFL released the 2018 regular season schedules for all 32 teams, which for the Bears includes back-to-back prime time games. The Bears will also travel to Detroit to take on the Lions on Thanksgiving. Two of the Bears’ three prime time games will feature division match-ups.

“Yeah, division games are always important, for a lot of reasons,” Nagy told reporters on Thursday. “People can say the tie-breakers and things of that nature. For us, this is … we need to just understand that the importance that it has. There’s so many different things that go into it and we’ll get into the details behind those four walls within us and how that works.”

Other notable games for the Bears in 2018 include hosting Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, an after-Thanksgiving match-up against the New York Giants, as well as quarterback-worthy games against the Los Angeles Rams (Trubisky vs. offseason training pal Jared Goff) and the San Francisco 49ers (Trubisky vs. Garoppolo).
