With the conclusion of the 2010 regular season, we can now look ahead to see who the Chicago Bears opponents will be in 2011. There are no dates or times associated with these games yet, that won’t happen until the NFL announces the official schedule in a few months. However, we can now determine the the home and away games for next season
Of course the Chicago Bears will have their tradition home and away games with their divisional opponents, the Minnesota Vikings, Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers. The teams of the NFC North will be playing teams of the NFC South and the AFC West this season.
Chicago will host home games featuring the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers, and the Seattle Seahawks. The Bears go on the road to play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New Orleans Saints, Oakland Raiders, Denver Broncos and the Philadelphia Eagles.
If the NFL takes on the expanded 18 game season, the additional two games will consist of a home game against an NFC East opponent and an away game against a NFC West opponent.
