The NFL schedule is still a month or more from being announced, but that doesn’t mean certain games won’t start to leak out.
Especially the International games, which always seem to get announced early.
The Bears are an intriguing team, being one of the bigger markets in the league, with a storied history, means they have a national following and tend to get primetime games even in their down years.
Now, with a young, budding quarterback and an offseason of big moves, giving them big games despite having the fewest wins a year ago, might make sense.
This brings us to today’s rumor.
The Bears typically don’t like giving up a home game to do the international series and haven’t, yet. They played the Bucs in London way back in 2011 and the Las Vegas Raiders in London in 2019, both as a road team though.
The Chiefs would also fall into that category because they’re set to play them in Kansas City if the game isn’t in Germany.
Trade your BBQ for wurst and schnitzel. I’m a fan!
The schedule will be announced in May.
What do you think about the Bears going overseas to face Patrick Mahomes? Would you make the trip?
