We've covered this game from every possible angle, and have anticipated the opening of the 2013 NFL season for months. New head coach, new offense, new offensive line, new linebackers... We've got us a new team, folks.
Now it's time to actually see what the Chicago Bears will being to the table. The Cincinnati Bengals won't be a walk in the park, and should provide a good litmus test for the opening game at Soldier Field.
Both teams have high expectations, and both hope to start the season with a win. Should be a good day on the lake in Chicago.
This is your 1st Quarter Open Thread... We will be here all day for live coverage and instant analysis.
