Eagles – Bears Moved to Sunday Night
As one of the hottest teams in the league, the 8-5 Eagles lead the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East while the Bears are tied with Detroit in the NFC North. With a win this coming Sunday against Minnesota and another over Chicago the Eagles could win the division.
"Obviously when your game gets flexed this late in the season it means you are having a good season." said Townsquare Media Sports Director Kevin Williams. "However, the negative is that any young kids planning on going to the game will probably be left home."
The game will begin at 8:30 p.m. from Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field.They bump the originally scheduled New England Patriots-Baltimore Ravens.It will be the third time the Eagles have played in prime time this season; they opened on a Monday night and then met ex-coach Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday, September 19.
