How to watch Packers vs. Bears NFL 2019 season opener without cable Info:
The NFL kicks off its 100th season with its oldest rivalry, one that dates back to 1921. No two cities have played each other more times than Chicago and Green Bay. When the Bears and Packers meet on Thursday to open the NFL season, it'll be the 199th time the teams have met.
In this year's edition of the rivalry, Aaron Rodgers will attempt to lead the Packers back to the playoffs after two straight losing seasons. He'll need to avoid Khalil Mack and the rest of the Bears' pass rush. On offense, the Bears will need to rely on youth to repeat as NFC North champs, with second-year pro Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback and rookie David Montgomery at running back.
The rest of the week 1 will be played on Sunday and conclude with a double-header on Monday Night Football.
Highlights of the early games on Sunday include current league MVP Pat Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in Jacksonville to play the Jaguars and their new QB and former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles. Baker Mayfield and his new receiving target Odell Beckham Jr. will open the season at home as the Cleveland Browns host the Tennessee Titans.
The late-afternoon games will give us our first glimpse of Kyler Murray in Arizona as the Cardinals host the Detroit Lions. The big question for the Cowboys-Giants matchup is whether Zeke Elliott will be suited up for Dallas or still in Cabo holding out for a new contract.
On Monday night, we get treated to not one game but two. First, the Houston Texans play the New Orleans Saints followed by the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders.
