Bears will play 3 prime-time games in 2022, including Week 2 meeting against Packers in Green Bay

By Colleen Kane

CHICAGO — The Matt Eberflus era in Chicago officially will begin when the Bears open their season against the San Francisco 49ers on Sept. 11 at Soldier Field, according to the 2022 schedule the team released Thursday night.

The new Bears coach then will get his first taste of the rivalry with the Green Bay Packers when his team visits Lambeau Field for “Sunday Night Football” in Week 2.

The Bears are slated to play three prime-time games in the first seven weeks of the season — the Packers game, a “Thursday Night Football” contest against the Washington Commanders at Soldier Field in Week 6 and a “Monday Night Football” game the following week against the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass.

A game against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium follows in Week 8, closing out an October with four road contests.

The home schedule is stacked late in the season, when the Bears play only one road game over the final six weeks — a Jan. 1 game against the Lions in Detroit. That means the Bears won’t be playing in the Thanksgiving Day game at Ford Field, which was on their schedule three of the last four seasons.

December and January home games include Week 13 against the Packers, a Christmas Eve game against the Buffalo Bills in Week 16 and the season finale against the Minnesota Vikings.

The Bears have a Week 14 bye, which falls on Dec. 11.
