Now THAT is how you kick off football season! A matchup that can't be denied by anyone, Bears vs. Packers. The Bears-Packers rivalry is the oldest in the NFL, dating to 1921.

If that doesn't get you ready for the 2019/20 NFL season I don't know what will. Chicago Bears will kick off their 100th season September 5 with a Thursday night game against the Green Bay Packers.

Can it be September already?

ACB7 details -

The game will be at 7:20 p.m. Sept. 5 at Soldier Field. The game will mark the first time in franchise history in which the Bears have opened the NFL season on Thursday Night Football, according to a press release. The last time the Bears and the Packers met at night at Soldier Field was 2010 on Monday Night Football, a 20-17 Bears victory in Week 3.

This will be the teams' 199th time meeting. Who will come out on top? We'll see September 5th. I'm excited for Summer, but now I'm REALLY excited for Fall.
