Week 10 – 11/9/14 – 7:30PM Sunday Night Football

@ Green Bay Packers (8-7-1)*

This is the earliest I can remember for the last Bears-Packers game of the season. Could first place in the NFC North be at stake so early in the season?

Week 11 – 11/16/14 – 12 Noon on Fox

Minnesota Vikings (5-10-1)

It’s a homecoming for Chicago area native new Vikings coach Mike Zimmer. Adrian Peterson always makes these games special to watch.

Week 12 – 11/23/14 – 12 Noon on Fox

 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-12)

I can’t wait for Lovie Smith to throw the first challenge flag.

Week 13 – 11/27/14 11:30 AM Thanksgiving on CBS

@ Detroit Lions (7-9)

The Bears head to the Motor City for a Turkey Bowl matchup for the first time since 1999.  Here’s to hoping this one turns out better than that debacle.
