Wake up, Bears fans! The preseason schedule has been released! I know you’ve been dying to know which meaningless practice games the Bears will be trudging through on the way to the 2014 regular season kickoff. Let’s take a look at the schedule and preview the games.
Philadelphia Eagles at Chicago Bears (August 7-10*)
Chip Kelly and the Eagles will test the Bears’ conditioning right out of the gates to kick off the preseason schedule. It’s only the first meaningless preseason game, so the Bears ought to see plenty of Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley battling it out to back up Nick Foles. Will the Bears avenge their 54-11 blowout prime time loss last season?
Jacksonville Jaguars at Chicago, Thursday August 14th, ESPN
The Bears get a nationally televised preseason game as the Jacksonville Jaguars head to Soldier Field. Could Jadeveon Clowney or Johnny Football be making their national TV debut?
