The Bears won’t be leaving Chicago in December.
The Bears’ 2022 schedule includes only home games in December, something the team hasn’t seen since 1964.
The Packers visit Chicago on Dec. 4 in Week 13, and in Week 14 the Bears have their bye week. Then it’s two more home games, against the Eagles on Dec. 18 and against the Bills on Christmas Eve. The Bears won’t play outside of Chicago until their New Year’s game in Detroit.
The Bears’ season finale is also at home, against the Vikings, which means Chicago gets four of its last five games at home, plus a late bye week. The Bears are long shots in the playoffs, but if the Bears manage to stay in the NFC North through December, the schedule is very favorable for a surprising end to the season.
