Preseason Week 1 Pre-Gamin’: Chiefs at Bears (Noon CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Bears

The Bears are back.


It’s the preseason, ya know?

Our favorite players will be on a snap count. And while that takes some of the fun out of today, look at it this way: We’re about to watch a bunch of players vying for any number of job openings. Save for a handful of select few players, there aren’t a ton of guarantees to go around. In other words, the next three games will present opportunities for many to earn a roster spot.

This is where the fun begins.
