That’s a lot of channels and while FOX has about half of the games, it has to alternate and at random times with the other media companies that have the rights.

The Chicago Bears have an off week on Week 13 to take a rest.

2022 Bears Schedule

The Chicago Bears played 20 games for the 2022 season.

Their season ended during the regular season because they didn’t make it to the playoffs.

They won all their preseason games but did not do as well in the regular season where they won 3 games but lost 15 games.

That’s pretty bad news. In this disappointing season, their key player was Justin Fields.
