The Chicago Bears will open up their 2020 season on the road against the Detroit Lions, and both teams will be looking to bounce back after disappointing 2019 campaigns.

The Bears were a popular postseason pick coming off their first playoff appearance since 2010, but they stumbled to an 8-8 record, while the Lions were looking to build off head coach Matt Patricia’s 6 win debut in 2010, but injuries aided their fall to 3-12-1 last season.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Bears vs Lions game.

When is the game?

Sunday, September 13, at 12:00 p.m. Central

Where is the game?

Ford Field, Detroit, Michigan


Ford Field is a dome, so weather will not be a factor.

How to watch!

This game is on FOX and if you live in the blue area in the 506 Sports map below, you’ll get you see the game and hear Kenny Albert Dick Stockton and Jonathan Vilma call the action.

EDIT: Albert was replaced due to COVID-19 protocol as he recently returned from Canada, where he was calling an NHL game.

FOX will also be giving their viewing audience a slice of familiarity by having a virtual crowd in the stands. For more on that you can click here.
