Bears-Eagles selected for Week 16 Sunday Night Football game
The NFL has chosen to place the Chicago Bears-Philadelphia Eagles game into its Sunday night slot, replacing the previously planned game between the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens.
NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal reports that the league will use its ‘flex game’ option to showcase the Chicago-Philadelphia contest on a national stage.
Both the Bears and the Eagles are in the thick of divisional playoff races in the NFC North and NFC East respectively.
NFL takes Patriots-Ravens out of Week 16 SNF for Bears-Eagles. A surprise but I like it.—
