Before the season, Matt Nagy noted that captains will be different week-to-week throughout the season. To little surprise, Chicago Bears' quarterback Andy Dalton was named a captain against his former team.

In addition to Dalton, the Bears named cornerback Jaylon Johnson and linebacker Christian Jones the other two captains.

Dalton spent nine seasons in Cincinnati with the Bengals, amassing over 30,000 yards over those nine seasons. Dalton threw for 31,594 yards and 204 touchdowns. In addition, the Red Rifle threw 118 interceptions and made three Pro Bowls.
