The 1969 Chicago Bears season was their 50th regular season completed in the National Football League. The club posted a 1-13 record, the worst in franchise history.

An already poor season was made even worse when running back Brian Piccolo was diagnosed with cancer in November. He would succumb to the disease in June of the following year.
