The National Football League announced on Monday that their entire 2023 NFL Schedule will officially be released on Thursday, May 11, at 7:00 PM CT on the NFL Network,, NFL+, and on the NFL app.

As usual, there will be several rumored leaks throughout the day on Thursday, and if things go how they have in past years, we should be able to piece the entire Chicago Bears’ schedule together before the schedule release.

The League also announced that they will release a handful of games today and tomorrow morning prior to Thursday’s prime-time special including:

  • The International Games – May 10 on NFL Network and ESPN - The Bears will not be playing in Germany this year.
  • Black Friday Game – May 10 via Amazon - This is Dolphins vs Jets
  • Select individual games – May 10 on Fox & Friends and CBS Mornings
  • Select individual games – May 11 on Today Show and Good Morning America

It looks like our usual Bears schedule leak suspects didn’t have much luck this year, so hit this link once the full schedule is revealed.

This year marks a few new rules for network coverage, the biggest of which is all Sunday afternoon games are up for grabs among FOX and CBS. We’ll still have most of the NFC games airing on FOX with CBS getting most of the AFC, but there will be much more crossover. Also, teams can appear on Thursday Night Football more than once, and not all teams are guaranteed to play on primetime.

All times listed are Central.


Week 1 - vs. Tennessee Titans

Week 2 - at Indianapolis Colts

Week 3 - vs. Buffalo Bills
