Last year, the first Sunday night game of the season had the Cowboys visiting the Rams, for the first game ever played at SoFi Stadium. This year, the first Sunday night game of the season will feature the first game ever played at SoFi Stadium with fans present. Hopefully.

The Bears will visit the Rams to cap the first Sunday of the league’s first 17-game season. The game will be televised by NBC.

Chicago will be a familiar foe for new Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford; he played the Bears twice per year from 2009 through 2020. It’s unknown whether the Bears will start the season with veteran Andy Dalton or rookie Justin Fields.

The league’s first 17-game season will end with the first Super Bowl played at SoFi Stadium. That game also will be televised by NBC.

  1. Feels very underwhelming for the first Sunday night game of the season, unless the Bears somehow roll out Fields right away.

  2. What a horrible match up. Rams/Seahawks, Rams/49ers, Rams v. any number of teams other than the woeful Bears would be much more interesting.

  3. I get the league wanting to show off a shiny new stadium whose debut COVID ruined, but why they are so enamored with Rams v. Bears is beyond me. Justin Fields WILL NOT start that game, and I don’t know anyone who is overly excited about Andy Dalton facing Aaron Donald.

  4. Might not be a great situation for Fields to start. That Rams D will be ferocious again, and they have no problem handling dual threat QBs.

  5. Dalton will be starting for the Bears. Things are trending in the right direction regarding Covid. Tickets will be hideously expensive, but they should be allowed to be at least 2/3 full.
