The Most Anticipated Bears' Games For 2019.

We're just a couple of hours away from the official 2019 Chicago Bears schedule being released. We already know that the Bears will open the season on September 5th against the Green Bay Packers while Chicago will head over to London and play the Oakland Raiders on October 6th and likely play the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day.
Aside from those, which are the Bears most anticipated games?According to Elliot Harrison of NFL.com, the three matchups that should get Bears' fans most excited are the ones against the Dallas Cowboys, Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs. Here's Elliot's reasoning for each:16) Dallas Cowboys at Chicago Bears: Styles make fights, except these two franchises mimic each other. Every drive will count.
10) Chicago Bears at Los Angeles Rams: A clash of divergent styles. Though Matt Nagy probably wishes his Bears could throw the ball all over the park like Sean McVay's Rams. If Mitch Trubisky is to evolve into that kind of passer, he must prove he can stay with the likes of Jared Goff, who has tossed 60 touchdown strikes over the last two seasons. Still, what makes this matchup so intriguing is not the quarterbacks — but rather, how Chicago and Los Angeles win games, their respective recipes for success. The Bears have proven they can shut down high-octane offenses, like when they held these Rams to six points last season. Then again, that was in the frigid night air of Soldier Field last December. How will it go between two obvious contenders out in the warm environs of L.A.? Will epic defense win the day again? How will McVay adjust? Side note: This is a fantastic old-style NFL uni matchup.8) Kansas City Chiefs at Chicago Bears: Matt Nagy owns unique insight into Patrick Mahomes' career, considering he was the reigning MVP's first offensive coordinator in the league and probably had much to do with Andy Reid feeling like he could move forward with the young quarterback. Nagy's last year in Kansas City was not only Mahomes' first, but also Alex Smith's last — you know, when Smith led the NFL in passer rating. Now Nagy is trying to do the same quality work with Mitch Trubisky, but his new team's strength is actually its top-flight defense. That Bears' unit will be charged with stopping Mahomes and the most explosive offense going right now. Ex-Raider Khalil Mack is more than familiar with this group, having routinely wreaked havoc on the Chiefs back when he played in the AFC West. This game is made better in that it is a rare occurrence, and sports a sweet — if underappreciated — uni matchup.Which of these three games are you most excited to see?
