How to watch Bears vs. Chiefs: Live stream, TV channel, start time originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
The Chicago Bears will take the field for the first time in the post-Matt Nagy era this weekend, and they’ll do it with their former coach on the opposing side.
Nagy, now an assistant with the Kansas City Chiefs, coached the Bears from 2018 through 2021. Matt Eberflus will make his head coaching debut for the Bears, who hired the former Colts defensive coordinator after firing Nagy in January.
It’s still early, but the preseason is a huge opportunity for some Bears to step up. This team has a lot of questions around second-year quarterback Justin Fields, so making the most of these exhibition games is crucial for regular-season success.
