The Chicago Owls were a professional American football team based in Chicago, Illinois. They were members of the Professional Football League of America (PFLA) in 1967 and, after the leagues merged, the Continental Football League (CFL) during the league's last two years (1968–1969). The club was owned by Marty O'Connor and coached by Don Branby.
The Owls signed former Arlington High School and Northern Illinois University Huskies star George Bork as starting quarterback before their inaugural season in 1968, which featured six home games at Soldier Field. The Owls' tenancy on the lakefront preceded the NFL's Bears by three years.
