The Schedule in 2013
After narrowly missing the postseason in 2012, despite a solid 10-6 record, the Chicago Bears
are back in 2013 and ready to take on all comers. The Bears schedule this season features some of the best teams in the National
Football League, offering fans a multitude of matchups to choose from throughout the year.
Bears fans should surely
mark their calendars on November 17th as well when the reigning world champion Baltimore Ravens come to town to see if they
can outdo "Da Bears." The Ravens made an incredible run in the postseason to take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy last season,
and this Chicago-Baltimore matchup could prove to be a good litmus test to see how good the Bears really are in 2013.
December rolls around and the playoff picture starts to become clearer and clearer in the NFC, a lot could be on the line
when the Bears and Dallas Cowboys take to the field December 9th for a conference battle for the ages. Toward the end of the
month, on December 29th, Bears fans will flock to Soldier Field to see the Bears host the rival Green Bay Packers, a game
that could have significant implications in the NFC North.
The Chicago Bears are one of the proudest
franchises in the National Football League and have a rich history of pounding the football on the ground and playing stellar
defense that simply suffocates opposing offensive units. The 2013 Chicago Bears, though, figure to be a bit different in their
style of play. The franchise currently has one of the best quarterbacks to don a Chicago uniform in signal caller Jay Cutler,
but Cutler is slated to miss some time with a groin injury after playing well to start the season.
With an elite wide
receiver in Brandon Marshall and a number of other weapons at Chicago's disposal, as well as the offseason hiring of offensive
guru Marc Trestman as the team's head coach, the sky is the limit for the Chicago aerial attack in 2013. If the Bears defense
can hold up throughout the season, with the same going for the offensive line, this could very well be the year that Chicago
returns to the Super Bowl.
After a quality regular season performance by Chicago resulted
in missing the postseason last year, Bears fans have to be as amped up as ever for 2013. The parking lots at Soldier Field
are sure to be filled with Chicago Bears diehards as they eagerly await the start of each game. There's definitely a contagious
atmosphere to an NFL game, where you'll find yourself surrounded by thousands of fans that love to root for the same team
that you do. Saturday Night Live may have had the Super Fans, but there are plenty of hardcore Bears fans to be found at the
stadium every time this squad takes the field in Chicago.
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. StubHub can get you to all the top matchups this and every season.
the Chicago Bears' 1985 Super Bowl-winning season, only one team was able to best the Monsters of the Midway that year. Which
team was it?
The only team that was able to defeat the Bears in 1985 was the Miami Dolphins, led by a young quarterback
by the name of Dan Marino. The loss was a major disappointment for Bears fans that thought an undefeated season was within
reach, and oddly enough the 1972 Miami Dolphins remain the sole team to go undefeated for an entire season and postseason
in the history of the National Football League.
The Chicago Bears franchise was formed in Decatur,
Illinois all the way back in 1919 before moving to Chi-Town two years later. The Bears found success early on, winning more
than a handful of NFL Championships in the pre-merger National Football League, including four in the 1940s alone. This team
won the Super Bowl in 1985 with one of the best defenses in the history of football, led by renowned head coach Mike Ditka.
Bears have won the NFC North division three times and always seem to be in the hunt for the division title. Chicago has called
Soldier Field home since 1971, making the venue a staple when it comes to the Bears organization. The Monsters of the Midway
have one of the best rivalries in the NFL in their annual matchups with the Green Bay Packers, games that any football fan
would want to be a part of.
