NFL moves Bears-Vikings game to 4:15 p.m. ET

Though the first weekend of the annual flex scheduling package won’t be resulting the Eagles-Bears game being bounced out of prime time, a shift has been made for the following weekend.

Also involving the Bears.

Their Week Twelve visit to the Twin Cities has been moved from 1:00 p.m. ET to 4:15 p.m. ET in order “to accommodate broadcast patterns.”

The reason for the accommodation is obvious; based on the official schedule available at NFL.com, no game was previously scheduled to commence at 4:15 p.m. ET.

So the next three Chicago games will feature high exposure.  Tomorrow night, they travel the San Francisco.  Ten days later, the Eagles — and NBC — come to town.  Then, the late game on the last day of Thanksgiving weekend will carry into prime time on FOX.

Hopefully for Bears fans, the team will do something to merit the extra attention.

    Does not matter this team’s season is far from over. As ESPN John Clayton put it “the bears are on of the worst teams in the nfl.:
    so much for all of the preseason hype from all you bear fans…makes me smile and laugh now….more laughing tho…much more

    You mean other than lose three straight, right?

    So more people get to see the Bears get spanked, I like it.

    Sounds like 3 straight losses For Cuntler and hibernating bears.

    Since when does a midweek game against an underachieving 49ers team on a network nobody watches count as “high exposure?”
    More people are going to see the Orlando Tuskers play the Bay Area Redwoods than this game.

    As a bears fan, can we please just move all of their games to the early game, so only Chicago has to watch them and all of their ineptness, while they get blown out by teams that are actually competent.

    It’ll probably be more like a scrimage for the tuskers, lets be honest. They’re rocking the party this year.
    and if charter communications would get its head out of its ass and add NFL network, I’d watch the game, what else is on thursdays? Hell, I’d watch the rams play the buccaneers.

    Hey dude, change you name to PussyHarvin as your Reply’s are all basically the same…. Let it go dude, you embarrass the Purple!

    This move is all about one player and I know Bears fan’s know who Im talking about. His name is Adrian Peterson nd he destroys the Bear’s everytime he plays them. Im predicting 230 yards for AD in that game. You herd it here first.

  11. PervyHarvin says: Nov 11, 2009 8:27 PM

    @ tpm58 – Listen punk, you don’t know shit about my posts. Embarrass the Purple? Hardly dipshit. I have more ball IQ in my peckerhead than you got total. If you are a Bear fan, haha joke of a team. If you like the Vikes,please get another team. I am a voice of Purple Pride that is going nowhere son.

    Sorry PussyHarvin – I misjudged your blazing wit and repartee. Well, I do bet your peckerhead is is full of ball IQ. Obviously the one on your shoulders is empty! Please, Please become a Chiefs fan, you are a disgrace to the Purple! And believe me, EVERYONE on here knows the BS you drip out of that great peckerhead that you think with is basically the same regurgitated crap EVERY TIME!!!!

    Wow. You really have some pent up aggression there. I feel for ya. It’s hard when your team sucks so badly.

    Maybe they should all drop their pants at half time…is that worth some ‘expose?’

  16. PervyHarvin says: Nov 12, 2009 7:56 AM

    @ tpm58 – LOL funkydunkleman is right. You have some issues that need addressed. Do the co workers fear you may go postal? You hate me for my team is going places and I can write more than 3rd grade namecalling like yourself. Go see Nurse Ratched and take the little yellow pill,you need it Karl Childers.

    What ever happened to that DBag who was always ripin’ the purple and said he was a Bear’s fan?? His name was Dewey something… I guess he’s only a preseason smack talker? Bears Fan’s get ready to be beat tonight in front of a national audience. Singeltary will have his boy’s ready to play.
