The Chicago Bears are rumored to be kicking off the NFL season and on Thanksgiving Day.

I knew after having a great season, the Bears would get much more exposure on "Prime Time."

The official NFL Schedule will not be released for several weeks, but there are rumors circulating about a couple of possible match ups.

According to,

"Get ready for another Thanksgiving Day with the Bears because the team is likely to face the Lions in a holiday rematch. The Nov. 28 matchup would pit the same two NFC North rivals against each other for the second straight year."

"The NFL is “leaning” toward having the Bears host the Packers on Sept. 5 in order to kick off the league’s 100th season. The decision would mean leaving the reigning Super Bowl champion out of the opener for the first time in over a decade."

If that happens, Chicago is going to have an exciting 2019 season.

It was announced earlier that the Bears would take on the Raiders in England.

Here are their 2019 opponents.
