This is the second time this season the Bears will appear on "Sunday Night Football" on NBC.
That will give the Vikings, who have a bye this week, back-to-back Sunday Night Football appearances; they play the Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium on November 25 at 7:20 p.m.
For the first time in seven years, the Vikings-Bears rivalry is headed for "Sunday Night Football".
The Bears game replaces the Steelers-Jaguars, a matchup that seemed more primed for primetime before Jacksonville got off to a 3-5 start.
The Eagles game November 18 at New Orleans has been moved from 1 p.m.to 4:25 p.m. ET. It is scheduled to be played at 1 p.m. The Vikings are percentage points behind the Bears at 5-3-1. The two teams squared off twice last season including once in the playoffs. Chicago hosts Detroit this Sunday, while Minnesota has a bye.
The NFL has made a few changes to its Week 11 schedule.
