The schedule for the 2019 NFL season is officially out, and while many fans are poring over whom their favorite team will be playing, the Chicago Bears know they have a midseason opportunity.

The Bears have a quirk in their schedule, but it’s a good one. Not only does the team get to start at home to open the season, but it spends a large chunk of the middle of the schedule in its home stadium.

After September 23 — Week 3 — when the Bears travel to Washington, the Bears will then have no “true” road games until November, when the team travels to Philadelphia.

In between, the Bears will take on the Minnesota Vikings, Oakland Raiders, New Orleans Saints, and Los Angeles Chargers. Three of those games will be at Soldier Field, except for the Raiders game in London, not Oakland.

Thanks to a bye in Week 6 to rest up from the trip overseas, the Bears won’t have to get their first taste of a true road trip until later in the year, which could prove beneficial in allowing the team to build chemistry and run off several victories.

After playing two quick road games in the first three games of the season, the Bears won’t have a taste of an opposing crowd until November. Winning in the NFL is tough, but winning on the road is notoriously harder, and in the middle of the season, the Bears get a break from life on the road. They will have a chance to build a cushion in the standings before they play a more road-heavy schedule in November and December.
