The NFL will likely open the 2019 season with theA Chicago BearsA hosting theA Green Bay Packers, rather than feature the defending championA New England Patriots, sources toldA John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal.

A reigning Super Bowl champion hasn't been omitted from the opening contest since 2006. But the Bears and Packers share the oldest rivalry in the NFL, making the two teams prime contenders to kick off the league's 100th season on Thursday, Sept. 5.
