The Bears and Broncos will hold two joint practices this August

It’s always a good idea to hold a couple joint practices during preseason and the Bears will face off against the Broncos this year.

Lost in the hoopla of 2018 NFL Schedule Release Day was the announcement by the Chicago Bears that they will hold two joint practices against the Denver Broncos this August.

The Bears will travel to Denver for their third preseason game, which is Denver’s second, and they’ll practice against each other on August 15th and 16th, with the game taking place on August 18th at 8pm Central.

Along with the regular season schedule coming out today, the Bears’ preseason schedule was finalized as well.

  • Thursday, August 2 vs Baltimore Ravens 7pm - NBC
  • Thursday, August 9 at Cincinnati Bengals 6pm - Fox32
  • Saturday, August 18 at Denver Broncos 8pm - Fox32
  • Saturday, August 25 vs Kansas City Chiefs Noon - Fox32
  • Thursday, August 30 vs Buffalo Bills 7pm - Fox32

(All times Central)

Traditionally the second preseason game has the starters play about a half, but with the Bears opening up with the Hall Of Fame Game, that may alter their playing time rotation.

Practicing against the Broncos will be a big plus for quarterback Mitchell Trubisky and the new offense. It’ll also be a good opportunity for head coach Matt Nagy to get some more film to digest before the season starts.
