On Sunday, Sept. 8, the Chicago Bears will return to the turf at historic Soldier Field for another great season. The Bears enter 2013 with a new head coach and high expectations. Quarterback Jay Cutler is embarking on what many believe to be a make or break season and longtime middle linebacker and future hall of famer, Brian Urlacher, is retired. Yes, 2013 promises to be very exciting.
Back in the fold to lead the defense will be All Pros defensive end Julius Peppers, linebacker Lance Briggs and cornerback Charles "Peanut" Tillman. With Brian Urlacher retired, the defense will get younger with 2013 draft picks linebackers Jon Bostic and Khaseem Greene battling for significant playing time.
On offense, the Bears will have one of the most high-powered groups in the NFL. Led by quarterback Jay Cutler, running back Matt Forte and receiver Brandon Marshall, the Bears are sure to put up some big points this season under the guidance of new head coach Marc Trestman and offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer.
This season, the Bears will host some of the most electrifying players in the game. The Cincinnati Bengals, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, Detroit Lions, the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys and the great rivalry with the Green Bay Packers will all face the Bears in Chicago this year.
The Giants will face the Bears in a nationally televised game on Thursday, Oct. 10, and the Cowboys will visit Soldier Field for a Monday Night game on Dec. 9.
