The NFL announced its preseason schedule Wednesday, revealing that the Bears could be the first team to face Peyton Manning since the 2010 season.
The Bears will open the preseason at home against the Broncos, who signed Manning last month, between Aug. 9-12.
The Bears already know the teams they will face in the regular season, but the order in which they will face them is still not known — the regular-season schedule will be released later this month.
In addition to facing the Broncos, the Bears' preseason schedule includes hosting the Redskins between Aug. 16-19, where they could get a look at QB Robert Griffin III, who is expected to be drafted by Washington with the second overall pick in the draft later this month.
The Bears will travel to face the defending Super Bowl champion Giants on Aug. 24 in a game that will be televised nationally on CBS. Chicago will wrap up its preseason slate by visiting the Browns on Aug. 30.
