It's game day, and the 0-2 Chicago Bears face their toughest challenge yet, the 1-1 Super Bowl champions Kansas City Chiefs. K.C. hasn't dominated like many thought to start their 2023 season, but we're still talking about Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, Chris Jones, and Andy Reid. They'll shake it off and find their groove eventually, and hopefully, it's not this week against the Bears.
Here's everything you need to know to prepare for the Bears vs. Chiefs game!
The Bears play in Kansas City, Missouri, at 3:25 p.m. (CT) at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. The weather is expected to have "intervals of clouds and sunshine. High 81F. Winds NW at 5 to 10 mph."
If you want tickets for Bears games or any other event, hit up our partners at StubHub right here.
The game will be aired on FOX with their number one broadcast team of Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen on the call, and if you live in the red of this 506 Sports map, then you get the Bears game.
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.
This week's Bears game can be heard on SiriusXM channels 135, 385 & 805.

The Bears are a 12.5-point underdog, according to our partners at DraftKings Sportsbook, with an over/under for the game at 48. For the record, I took the Chiefs and the over.
