Anticipating the Chicago Bears schedule in 2014

Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive...and Dodge - Allison Joyce

The league has announced that they'll drop the 2014 schedule at 7pm CT tonight. Naturally we need to spend all day guessing what that schedule might look like.

We know who the Bears will be playing, but we don't know yet exactly when those games will happen. The teams they'll face next season:

Home: New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings

Away: Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New England Patriots, New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings

Now that we live in a world with Twitter, of course, these things have a tendency to leak out a bit early.  We'll spend our day in this thread tracking rumors and reports, and we'll have an official schedule post for you when it comes from the mouth of the league itself.

Make sure to check back to Windy City Gridiron all day long, as we can't wait to get a taste of who we'll see when. and rest assured, we'll have some analysis of this schedule for you shortly.

EDIT - The schedule is starting to leak via Twitter
