Chicago Bears vs Cincinnati Bengals: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming and more

New, comments

Yeah yeah, technically speaking, the 2013 NFL season started on Thursday night as Peyton Manning passed his way towards history. For Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears, the season starts today, and expectations are high.

Hopefully some of the pressure will be off of Marshall in 2013.

Finally.

The last time we saw the Chicago Bears in regular season action was in a 26-24 week 17 victory over the Detroit Lions. Despite defeating that division rival and making it to the always solid double-digit record, it simply wasn't enough as the Minnesota Vikings snuck their way into the final wild card slot.

Missing the playoffs seemed to be the final straw, and it accelerated the exit of Head Coach Lovie Smith. Flipping the script fully, general manager Phil Emery brought in Marc Trestman, a former NFL coordinator and CFL head coach.

We know little about what we're going to see from the Chicago Bears on offense this year, but we absolutely know that it is going to be interesting, one way or another.
