It's been a long offseason for the Chicago Bears, and we're nearly at the finish line. Just one more preseason game to go tomorrow against the Buffalo Bills, and then, for all intents and purposes, it'll be Packers' week. Technically, there are two weeks between the preseason finale and week one, but the anticipation/angst has been building for the 2023 season kickoff when it was announced that Green Bay was the opponent.
But there's one more practice game to go.
The Bills have been one of the best teams in the AFC for the last few years, with a solid roster from top to bottom, so that means a big test for Chicago's ones vs. ones, twos vs. twos, and threes vs. threes. Each team will play their starters, but how long no one knows.
Here's everything you need to know to prepare for the Bears vs. Bills game.
The Bears are hosting the Bills at Noon (CT) at Soldier Field, and it should be beautiful football weather with temps in the mid-70s.
If you are looking for tickets for this game or any other event, hit up our partners at StubHub right here.
The game will be aired in the Chicago area on FOX 32 with Adam Amin (play-by-play), Jim Miller (analyst), and Lou Canellis (sideline) on the call. A full list of TV affiliates is available here.
This is just a preseason game, so we didn't do a traditional preview, but we did fire off a few preview-type things this week.

Mason & Danny previewed the game and ran through the entire injury list here.
Bill gave us five things to watch for the Bears vs Bills game. (Link)
Bill was also a guest on Football Night in Chicago this week and you can check that segment out here.
The Bears are 3-point home underdogs, with the over/under at 39.
This season, there is a new radio home for the Bears as ESPN 1000 (AM 1000, 100.3 FM HD2) is the new flagship! Jeff Joniak and Tom Thayer will still be in the booth, but Jason McKie will serve as the new sideline reporter.
Spanish language broadcast can be found on LATINO MIX 93.5 FM with Omar Ramos (play-by-play) and Miguel Esparza (analyst) on the call.
