The Bears announced their four-game 2017 preseason slate on Monday afternoon.
As we all know, the third game also known as the dress rehearsal is really the most crucial. It is where the starters earn the most extensive playing time of the summer in an organized game.
Here’s how the schedule looks for the month of August:
Week 1 – vs. Denver
Week 2 – at Arizona
Week 3 – at Tennessee
Week 4 – vs. Cleveland
The opening home game will fall between Aug. 10-14 while the second game, on the road in Arizona, will be somewhere in the Aug. 17-21 range. After that, the Bears head out to Tennessee for nationally televised Week 3 game in Tennessee that will air on Fox at 12 pm CT.
Cleveland comes to town for the preseason finale between Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. This is yet another year where the Bears will welcome the Browns to Soldier Field for the most meaningless game of the year. This is where all the players fighting for roster spots play the most.
