The Detroit Lions make their first trip to Soldier Field since the 2010 season opener, “process of the catch” fiasco on November 13th. Since both the Lions and Bears are in the thick of the NFC playoff race, Fox has decided to move kickoff back to 3:15 Central to make the game the featured late game in the double header package.
It’s good news for me because I have a conflict earlier in the day on the 13th. My brother and his wife have honored me in making me the godfather to their first son Emmett and the baptism is late morning on the 13th. It was an offer I couldn’t refuse.
Doesn’t the church know the Bears have a critical NFC North showdown on the 13th? The good news now is that we won’t miss much if any of the game. The bad news is that the Bears will be wearing the alternate orange jerseys.
