The Bears will open the preseason this summer just as they did last year—by hosting the Denver Broncos the weekend of Aug. 10-14 at Soldier Field.
After facing the Broncos, the Bears will play back-to-back road games. They'll visit the Cardinals in Arizona the weekend of Aug. 17-21 and the Titans in Tennessee at noon on Sunday, Aug. 27 in a nationally-televised game on Fox.
ChicagoBears.com takes a look at some photos of previous games between the Bears and their 2017 preseason opponents.
The Bears will then close the preseason by hosting the Browns at Soldier Field Aug. 31 or Sept. 1. The two teams have met in the preseason finale every year since 2004, with the Bears holding a 7-6 advantage.
The exact dates and times for the games against the Broncos, Cardinals and Browns will be released at a later date. All three of those contests will be produced and broadcast by the Chicago Bears Network and shown live on Fox32 Chicago and stations throughout the Midwest.
All four contests also will be broadcast on WBBM radio (780 AM and 105.9 FM) featuring Jeff Joniak on play-by-play and Tom Thayer as color analyst.
The NFL regular-season schedule is expected to be announced later this month. In addition to home and away games against the Lions, Packers and Vikings, the Bears are slated to host the Falcons, Panthers, Browns, Steelers and 49ers and visit the Ravens, Bengals, Saints, Buccaneers and Eagles.
Last season the Bears lost their first three preseason games to the Broncos 22-0, Patriots 23-22 and Chiefs 23-7 before beating the Browns 21-7.
