Your Sports TV Schedule, 12/12: Bears/Patriots Leads NFL Schedule

The big event happens this afternoon at 3:15, of course, when the Patriots visit the Bears. But there are other important NFL games today and tonight, as well as some Big Ten college basketball action.

12 noon, CBS-2: NFL, Bengals at Steelers. 2-10? No wonder. It's hard to understand how a girl band from the 1980s could make it in the NFL... oh, wait. Bengals, you say, not Bangles? Well, they're playing about like a girl band from the Eighties would...

12 noon, Fox-32: NFL, Packers at Lions. Originally scheduled in this timeslot was Giants at Vikings... at about 9 p.m. Saturday, the NFL postponed this game to Monday night because of the blizzard in Minneapolis and Fox-32 will carry Green Bay at Detroit instead.

3:15 p.m., CBS-2: NFL, Patriots at Bears. This one doesn't need any hype.

5 p.m., Big Ten Network: College basketball, Northern Colorado at No. 17 Illinois. It appears to be "Directional School Week" for the Big Ten teams.

7 p.m., NBC-5: NFL, Eagles at Cowboys. The Eagles get a preview of the stadium they hope to play in, on February 6, 2011. The Bears would like to have something to say about that.
