    Soldier Field may be dormant now, but it will be rocking this September when the Chicago Bears open their 2017 season.

    The Chicago Bears went 3-13 during the 2016 season, and as they look to improve on that mark in 2017, they now know what their schedule will look like in the coming year. 

    The Bears will open the 2017 regular season with a home game against the defending NFC champions, as the Atlanta Falcons come to Soldier Field in Week 1. The Falcons also opened the 2011 season in Chicago, losing 30-12 to the Bears in a blowout Chicago victory. 

    The Bears will only have two primetime games this season, playing the Green Bay Packers in a Week 4 Thursday Night Football showdown and the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football in Week 5.
