Chicago Bears Schedule
The Chicago Bears are ready to hit the field this season in search of victory as they face
off with some of the best teams in the National Football League. The Bears had an up-and-down season in 2013, and nothing
played a bigger role in that trend than the injury sustained by starting quarterback Jay Cutler. Cutler played well when healthy
in 2013, but was been unable to stay on the field. Backup Josh McCown held down the fort surprisingly well, but it's the Chicago
defense that struggled throughout the season. The Bears allowed a lot of points last season, and that's something that the
team is looking to improve upon in 2014. The Bears missed out in winning the division title by a single game last season even
though Cutler missed several games, so fans are optimistic about the team's chance in the NFC North this season. It's going
to take some big wins at home, but this is a squad that is capable of making it happen.
The Bears, as they do on an
annual basis, will host the Green Bay Packers for one of the biggest matchups of the year on September 28th. The Green Bay
Packers are the Bears' biggest rival, and every time these two teams match up there are fireworks. The Packers are the club
that edged out the Bears for the division crown last season, and the Monsters of the Midway are certainly out for revenge.
Getting a win early in the season would be a good start. However, a victory against this Green Bay squad is not going to come
easily, as they have one of the top offensive units in the league. 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.
will face the Detroit Lions on December 21st in their final home game of the season. The Lions are another team with an explosive
offense, one that features one of the top wide receivers in the National Football League in Calvin Johnson. Megatron, as he's
been dubbed, is a matchup nightmare for any defense, and the Bears are going to have to pay a lot of attention to the former
Yellow Jacket if they're going to have a chance at slowing him down.
Chicago Bears Team Info
In just his
second season in the NFL, Alshon Jeffery showed that he was definitely not still learning the ropes, as he tore up defenses
all season long to the tune of 1,421 yards and seven touchdowns. Not only did he become a hero to fantasy football owners
all over the world, but he showed that the Bears are no longer a team that has to rely solely on defense. Toss in Brandon
Marshall and suddenly the Bears have arguably the best one-two receiving punch in the league, as Marshall is still playing
at a superstar-level. On defense, the Bears also have some big-time playmakers as well, giving them the type of balance that
makes them one of the toughest teams to beat in the NFC from season to season, and we haven't even gotten to Matt Forget yet,
one of the most consistently dominant backs in the league in recent seasons. The Bears may have missed the playoffs by the
thinnest of margins last season, but anyone can see that they are definitely on the rise and close to title contention after
a successful debut by coach Mark Trestman.

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 and playmakers like Mike Singletary and William "The Fridge Perry."
The Bears have
also 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.
Where did Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler play in college?
answer is Vanderbilt, where he played well against some tough SEC opponents despite not having a great supporting cast.
