The Chicago Bears thought they planned ahead to beat a storm bearing down on their destination for the Bears-Ravens game Sunday. Normally the Chicago Bears would leave Saturday afternoon — the day before a Sunday football game. However, with a winter storm warning and blizzard warning alerting the east coast to a possible record snowfall, the Bears decided to push their departure flight ahead to 10:30 p.m. Friday. Players and personnel sat on their plane from 10:30 p.m. until 12:30 a.m. Saturday because the snowstorm also was ahead of schedule — and caused a flight delay for the Bears Friday night.

The Bears took from O’Hare International Airport about 8:00 p.m. CT and had a good flight to Baltimore, landing at about just before 11 p.m. ET.

BWI has four runways, but only one runway was open when the Chicago Bears landed Saturday night. . On Sunday morning BWI had two runways open.
