It was the last time a Chicago Bears team will play a regular-season game in the team’s new home stadium until January.
The Bears played their final game in Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, ending a two-year run at home and a five-year streak at Soldier Field.
The last time the team played in Lincoln was in 2011.
The team had a brief stint in the old stadium when they played in the National Football League’s Chicago Stadium.
In its new home, the Bears play against the Indianapolis Colts in the final regular-game home game of the season on Jan. 7.
“I’m really excited to come here, and we are thrilled to be here,” Bears defensive end Brandon Marshall said.
We’re just going to do everything we can to make it a success.” “
It’s not going to be easy.
We’re just going to do everything we can to make it a success.”
The Bears’ last home game was in Lincoln in 2011, when they defeated the Green Bay Packers 27-14.
It was a historic day in Chicago, the first time the Bears played in Soldier Field since the Bears were relocated to the city in 2004.
“When we were here, it was always a great venue, a beautiful stadium,” Marshall said of the Bears’ historic win over Green Bay.
It is the start of a great season. “
Today, it’s not just the end, it is the beginning.
It is the start of a great season.
It’s the beginning.”
The new stadium will be one of the largest stadiums in the NFL.
It will feature 18,000 seats and is home to the Bears, Chicago Fire and Chicago Blackhawks.
Bears wide receiver Chris Conley said the new stadium is the perfect place for the team to host home games, especially in light of the upcoming season.
“The stadium is beautiful, the field is beautiful,” Conley told ESPNChicago.com.
Conley, who has played in two games in the stadium, said he has not played the first two games but he has no doubt he will be back to play in 2018. “
And then the fans are going to get that great energy, too, when you have two of them on the sidelines.”
Conley, who has played in two games in the stadium, said he has not played the first two games but he has no doubt he will be back to play in 2018.
He also is excited about the team building and new fans.
“If you want to build something new and new to build on, you just gotta make it better,” Conry said.
The new facility will be completed before the 2020 season and is expected to open in 2021.
The stadium is located in the middle of a development, the city of Chicago said in a statement.
“This will be the Bears home since they will be moving to the new facility in 2020,” the statement read.
“Consequently, all of the necessary infrastructure is in place to allow for the stadium to open and to begin play in 2021.”
The NFL also announced the retirement of former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who played in four NFL seasons.
Cutler was signed by the Chicago Bears in 2014 as an undrafted free agent and went on to play two seasons for the Bears.
He was cut by the Bears in 2018 and signed by Seattle.
“Jay Cutler’s career in the CFL has come to an end, and his time with the Bears will forever be etched in the history of Chicago sports,” the NFL said in the statement.
Cutler, 34, played four seasons in the league for the Packers and Seattle Seahawks.
He had three interceptions in nine games.
The move comes amid a rebuilding effort in the Bears locker room, which is filled with former players and coaches who had their jobs cut by other teams.
Former Bears wide receivers coach Dave Aranda was fired by the team in March 2018 and then reinstated by the club on Aug. 10, 2018.
“A lot of players got let go because of lack of respect for their work ethic,” Aranda said.
Former Chicago Bears linebacker T.J. Lang also was fired and then re-instated by the new team.
“You get a lot of guys who were working with the guys who did it,” Arana said.
