The 1970 Chicago Bears season was their 51st regular season completed in the National Football League. The club posted a 6–8 record, another below .500 showing, but an improvement over their 1–13 record of the previous season.

Regular season[edit]

The Bears hosted their first home game of the season at Northwestern's Dyche Stadium as an experiment; the NFL had demanded that the Bears move out of Wrigley Field because Wrigley's seating capacity was under 50,000. After Evanston residents petitioned city officials to block the team from moving there permanently, the Bears moved to Chicago's Soldier Field the following year.
