After a very busy weekend of college and pro football, it’s a slower day for televised sports today. Take it easy — the Bulls and Blackhawks are. The Blackhawks are back in action tomorrow; the Bulls are off until Wednesday.â†µ
4:30 p.m., CSN Chicago: Bears recap. Now this is a game worth reliving!â†µ
6 p.m., ESPN2: College basketball, Virginia at No. 17 Minnesota.â†µ
6:30 p.m., Versus: NHL, Stars at Hurricanes.â†µ
7:30 p.m., ESPN: NFL, 49ers at Cardinals. On the one hand, you could wonder how the NFL wound up with this turkey of a game between 3-7 teams, just after Thanksgiving, when the league has flex scheduling the last several weeks of the season. On the other hand, the winner of this game will be only one game out of first place in the NFC West.â†µ
7:30 p.m., NBA-TV: Rockets at Mavericks. The Mavs are off to a good season start. The Rockets… aren’t.
