Chicago Bears

TEAM HISTORY

The Bears played in Wrigley Field, the famous home of the Chicago Cubs baseball team, from 1921 to 1970.

The Bears’ oldest rivalry is with the Arizona Cardinals. The two teams played each other for the first time in 1920.

The Bears were the first team to buy a player from another team, paying $100 for Ed Healey from Rock Island in 1922.

The Bears won three NFL championships in the 1940s, including a 73-0 victory over Washington in 1940.

Despite winning nearly 60 percent of their games in the 1950s, the Bears did not win an NFL title and made only one playoff appearance. They finally broke a 17-year championship drought with a 14-10 win over the New York Giants in 1963.

The Bears won their first and only Super Bowl in 1986 when they defeated the New England Patriots, 46-10.
