TOP STORYLINE

Saturday's game against the Chiefs will be the closest look fans will get at the Bears' regular-season offense. Coach Matt Nagy treated this week as if the team was preparing for a regular-season game. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky and the offense spent the week game-planning for the Kansas City defense.

"It's been fun just learning how coach 'Nags' game-plans throughout the week," Trubisky said. "We have a better idea of what our game plans is and what plays we like in certain situations and what we're going to start with, so I've got a lot better idea about the offense."

TEACHER VERSUS STUDENT

Nagy will face his former boss, Chiefs coach Andy Reid, for the first time. Nagy spent 10 seasons on Reid's staff as an assistant with the Eagles and the Chiefs. Nagy was the Chiefs offensive coordinator under Reid the past two seasons.

"It just kind of puts a little added fun to it," Nagy said. "The respect that I have for that organization and obviously for Coach Reid and (Chiefs general manager) Brett Veach — that's where I started. … They know I know them inside out, and they know us inside out, so there's a little bit of reverse psychology going on right now. So you've just to figure out are you playing chess or are you playing checkers?"

HISTORY LESSON

The Bears are 2-8 all-time against the Chiefs in the preseason. The Bears won their last preseason contest in Kansas City in 2009, edging the Chiefs 27-17.
