The National Football League will announce their 2016 schedule on Thursday night in a primetime television special, and the Chicago Bears will be one of the teams looking forward to finding out how their season will look.
Of course, the Bears do already know who their opponents will be, as the league uses specific formulas and patterns to determine that list. The Bears’ home slate will be interesting enough this season, with the Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans among those clubs making the trip to Soldier Field, and the Bears will have to hit the road to play the Dallas Cowboys and Indianapolis Colts, among others.
Here is the full list of opponents that the Bears will face in 2016:
Home – Detroit, Green Bay, Jacksonville, Minnesota, Philadelphia, San Diego, Tennessee, Washington
Away – Dallas, Detroit, Green Bay, Houston, Indianapolis, Minnesota, NY Giants, Tampa Bay
The full NFL schedule will be released at 7 p.m. Central time on Thursday night, with primetime showcases airing on NFL Network and ESPN.
