Chicago Bears open season vs. Colts

The NFL released its schedule Tuesday, with the Chicago Bears opening Sept. 9 at Soldier Field against the Indianapolis Colts, and

presumably quarterback Andrew Luck, who is expected to be the first pick of the upcoming draft.

It will be the third consecutive year the Bears open at home.

In all, the Bears play the NFL’s maximum of five prime time games, with three outings on ESPN’s "Monday Night Football," including contests at the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 21, and the San Francisco 49ers on Nov. 19 in Weeks 4 and 11, and a home date against the Detroit Lions in Week 7.
