Their road games will be against the Rams, Seahawks, Browns, Steelers, Buccaneers and Raiders. The Raiders game was added earlier this offseason when the NFL officially agreed to add a 17th game.
The Bears will play eight home games this season and nine road games, though they’ll host two of the three preseason games.
