Sports bars to watch pro football games in the city, no matter your team affiliation.

During football season, finding a sports bar to watch Bears games involves little more than walking into any bar with a TV. But maybe you're not originally from Chicago and/or your NFL football allegiances lie elsewhere. Perhaps you ally with the Packers (gasp!) or Patriots, 49ers, Lions or Titans. Where can you go to watch AFC South, AFC West, NFC South and NFC West games in Bear country? Many bars subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket—we recommend you call ahead to confirm—and there are plenty of local establishments with connections to other teams. So whether you're a Seahawk at heart or a Steeler by birth, our guide to Chicago sports bars for every team in the NFL will help you feel (at least a little) less alone.
