The Chicago Bears are launching their 2023 road schedule in bright orange threads.
The team practiced in the orange jerseys and helmets Wednesday at Halas Hall, and later confirmed on social media that they would wear the alternate uniforms this Sunday in Tampa Bay against the Bucs.
The Bears debuted the orange alternates at Soldier Field in Week 6 last season and went 0-2 against the Commanders and Cowboys with the new uniforms.
Don’t worry, though. The orange uniform was probably less of a jinx than the color a really bad team wore.
For the record, that last sentence was supposed to make you feel better.
