Chicago opened the season with terrible weather conditions in their Week 1 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Poor drainage at Soldier Field left the field soaked, but the Bears managed a 19-10 win over the Niners.

“We do wanna mimic game conditions the best we can. Right now it looks like cold for Saturday and some wind. So we’ll have to see that – we’ll have to play it by ear based on what the conditions are here,” Bears coach Matt Eberflus told reporters on Tuesday.

“The Bears have done very well in cold weather, so we’re excited about it.”

“We’ll adjust, adapt, overcome – we’re gonna figure it out. We’re talking about different things right now to make sure we’re all squared away with travel down to the hotel and all those things, but we have plans in place,” Eberflus said Tuesday. 

“We’ll be able to slide things, move things forward and move things back. So we’ve already got that ready to go, and our players will be ready.”
