The Chicago Bears have announced their 2018 preseason opponents and weekends. The Bears will play their first three games on the road before concluding the preseason with consecutive games at Soldier Field.
As previously announced, the Bears will kick off the NFL’s 99th season when they meet the Baltimore Ravens in the Pro Football Hall of Fame game at 7 p.m. CT Thursday, Aug. 2 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio.
From there the Bears will head back to Ohio to face the Cincinnati Bengals (Aug. 9-12) before traveling to Denver to face the Broncos (Aug. 16-19) in what will be the third consecutive preseason meeting between the two clubs.
After spending the first three weeks on the road, the Bears will finish out the preseason at home when they host the Kansas City Chiefs (Aug. 23-26) and Buffalo Bills (Aug. 30) at Soldier Field.
Chicago’s 2018 preseason games will be produced and broadcast by the Chicago Bears Network with the exception of the national broadcast vs. the Ravens (NBC). Exact dates and times for those contests will be announced at a later date. Each game broadcast by the Chicago Bears Network will be shown live on Fox32 Chicago and stations throughout the Midwest.
