|1922 Chicago Bears season|
|Head coach||George Halas|
|Home field||Wrigley Field|
|League place||2nd NFL|
The 1922 Chicago Bears season was their third regular season completed in the National Football League, which changed its name from the APFA, and the first under the new franchise name. The team changed the name from Staleys to Bears because Halas wanted his football franchise's nickname to reflect that of the team whose field he used, that being the Chicago Cubs.
The team was unable to improve on their 9–1–1 record from 1921 and finished with a 9–3 record under head coach/player George Halas earning them a second-place finish in the team standings earning them a second-place finish, the second time in the last three years. Two of the three losses were to the Chicago Cardinals, both shutouts suffered "away" at Comiskey Park where the Cardinals played their home games. The other loss was to eventual NFL champion Canton Bulldogs. In none of their other games were the Bears seriously challenged, with most either shutouts or relative blowouts. Ed "Dutch" Sternaman led the Bears in scoring for the third straight season, with three touchdowns, 6 field goals, and 5 PATs, finishing with 41 points. His brother Joe Sternaman joined the team and starred by scoring 5 touchdowns and adding 2 PATs.
