2014 Chicago Bears Road Schedule
At the end of an exciting but injury-plagued 2013 season, the Bears missed out
in winning the division title by a single game, ultimately finishing just below heated rival Green Bay. Considering they nearly
won the division without their starting quarterback for much of the season, the Bears and their fans are extremely optimistic
as they look to take the next step forward in 2014. Though we all know that Soldier Field is sure to be absolutely hopping
with great fans that know how to show their support, away games are always loaded with great Bears' fans as well, as this
is a fan base that shows up when and wherever the Bears take to the gridiron.
Of course, one of the biggest road games
of the season – as with every year – will be when they take on the Green Bay Packers. Led by quarterback Aaron
Rodgers, the Packers offense is always tough to stop, and the Bears are going to have to score a lot of points in their own
right to keep up. But this is a promising offensive Bears unit that looks like one of the most explosive in the league, making
the Nov. 9 matchup at Lambeau one of the most anticipated NFC North games of the season. Chicago will also travel to Detroit
this season to face the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 27), another matchup that is sure to have more than enough
fanfare to go around.
It's not only about the biggest division rivals, however, as the Bears also have a Sept. 14 game
in San Fran against the Niners, an Oct. 5 grudge match with the Panthers in Charlotte and an Oct. 26 game in New England with
the Patriots – all of which will bring plenty of hype heading into the opening kickoff. As the Bears look to make a
statement on the road this season, there has never been a better time to keep an eye on the road game calendar to make sure
that you don't miss a game that you know fans will be talking about all over the Windy City.
Chicago Bears Team
In a league that has becoming more and more of a passing one, the Bears have all kinds of playmaking weapons that
has been known to keep defensive coordinators up at night. The Bears already knew they had a special wide receiver in Brandon
Marshall, but the emergence of Alshon Jeffery opposite Marshall was quite the story last season. Jeffery posted two 200-yard
games last year and looks to be a star on the rise in the National Football League, and with Cutler back under center, this
is a team that has the potential to be one of the very best passing units in the game. Put it together with a strong defensive
unit that has plenty of upside and this is a team that is sure to be right in the thick of the playoff hunt in the NFC North
once again this season.
NFL Road Experience
When the Bears take to the gridiron this season, you'll feel
the excitement in the air, as the atmosphere around the National Football League is consistently palpable. Watching the game
from home doesn't seem to compare to being there for all the biggest games, and Bears fans that have been to Soldier Field
know that to be the case. However, games away from home can be even more fun, as you'll get to see the Bears silence the opposing
crowd with every touchdown, and it won't take long to realize that being a part of a huge road win is something that every
fan needs to experience sooner or later. When the clock is ticking down and the crowd is getting quieter and quieter as the
Bears take control of the game, there isn't another feeling like it.
Chicago Bears History
Bears franchise originated in Decatur, Illinois back in 1919 before the team moved to the Windy City two years later. The
Bears won several NFL Championships in the pre-merger National Football League, including four in the 1940s. In the modern
era, this team won the Super Bowl in 1985 with one of the best defenses in the history of football, led by legendary head
coach Mike Ditka and guys like Mike Singletary, William Perry and others. The Bears have won the NFC North division three
times and always seem to be in the hunt for the division title, giving fans plenty of optimism as they look to keep up the
winning tradition in 2014.
Chicago Bears Trivia
Where did Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler attend
The answer is Vanderbilt University, where he starred despite minimal talent around him. Cutler was the third
quarterback selected in the NFL Draft the year he went pro, behind both Vince Young and Matt Leinart. But while Young and
Leinart weren't long for starting gigs in the NFL, Cutler has consistently proved to be one of the most dangerous quarterbacks
in the league.
