Chiefs vs Bears Preseason Game Info
2022 NFL Preseason Game
Kansas City Chiefs (0-0) vs. Chicago Bears (0-0)
Date: Friday, August 13, 2022
Time: 1 p.m. ET
Venue: Soldier Field — Chicago, IL
Coverage: NFL Network
Week 1 of the NFL preseason includes a showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and Chicago Bears. The Chiefs are expected to be one of the league's top teams again, so it won't be too surprising if most of their starters have limited roles or end up sitting out altogether.
The Bears look to change their fortunes this season after years of futility. Head coach Matt Eberflus will want to make an impact in his full game as the head coach, so expect a strong effort from his squad.

Chiefs vs Bears Prediction & Pick
The Chiefs are a team that doesn't always put their best effort forward in the preseason. However, they actually went 3-0 in exhibition games last year -- an indication of how solid the team's coaching is. Given that Kansas City went 1-3 in the 2019 preseason, don't expect another perfect start for the Chiefs.
Meanwhile, the Bears are hungry to prove that they're better than people give them credit for. Unfortunately, Chicago hasn't even succeeded in preseason action lately, going 7-13 straight up in its last 20 games played in August. Having said that, the Bears have more to prove here and I think the players will do their best to welcome Eberflus with a victory.
Final Score Prediction: Bears: 17 | Chiefs: 13

The Bears and Chiefs have combined for some low-scoring affairs and I expect that trend to continue on Saturday. Kansas City won't be trying too hard while Chicago's offense on paper is... not good, to say the least.
It's going to be a close game that'll potentially be dictated by defense. Keeping that in mind, I do expect the Bears to emerge as the victors and the best way to get value from that outcome is by taking Chicago at -105 on the moneyline.
Bet: Bears Moneyline (-105)
