Dolphins vs Bears: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming, storylines, and more

The Miami Dolphins kick off their 2015 preseason schedule tonight with a contest against the Chicago Bears. We get you ready for the game.

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins' 2015 season reaches its first game - albeit a preseason contest - tonight when they kickoff against the Chicago Bears. The starters will not play much tonight, and the game does not really count, but it is Miami Dolphins football, and it gets us one step closer to the regular season.

Tonight's game will mark the first time the Bears and Dolphins have faced each other since Miami went into Soldier Field last October and beat Chicago 27-14 in Week 7. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw for 277 yards with two touchdowns in the game, while running back Lamar Miller added 61 yards on 18 carries with a score.

The goal for tonight's contest, for both teams, is to come out of the game healthy, and with a closer look at some of the reserve players on the roster. The starters will exit the game quickly, and from then on, it is all about players trying to impress coaches and climb up the depth chart.
