The NFL announced Monday the Bears home game on Sunday, November 18 against the Minnesota Vikings will now be a 7:20 p.m. kickoff.

After both teams recorded decisive victories Sunday, the Bears (5-3, .625) maintain a narrow lead over the Vikings (5-3-1, .611) atop the NFC North.

For the first time in seven years, the Vikings-Bears rivalry is headed for "Sunday Night Football". The Bears lost to the Packers 24-23 in the season opener.

The Chicago Bears are moving to prime time. That means you're doing well. This game will mark the first time since 2012 that the Bears have hosted a Sunday night game and will mark the first time since 2011 that the Vikings and Bears have been given the Sunday night time slot together.

The Pittsburgh Steelers at Jacksonville Jaguars game originally scheduled for 7:20 p.m. CST on NBC has been moved to CBS at noon.

The NFL has made a few changes to its Week 11 schedule.

The Bears are 6-25 in the division since 2013. But we're trying to really create our own culture and create our own history.
