The Bears set their preseason schedule Wednesday night, cementing dates and times for two home games and two road contests.

The Bears will open their preseason slate on Thursday, Aug. 8 at 7 p.m. against the Panthers at Solider Field.

They’ll travel to the Giants for Week 2, playing at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 16. They’ll then face the Colts in a 6 p.m. game on Saturday, Aug. 24 at Lucas Oil Stadium. The game in Indianapolis will mark a homecoming for new defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano, the former Colts head coach.

For the preseason finale, the Bears will host the Titans at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 29.

All games will air locally on Fox 32.

The Bears announced their four preseason opponents last week, but the NFL didn’t set specifics until Wednesday.
