Bears Gaining Respect: Pats Game Moved to 3:15 Start

2010_11_29_bears_pats.png These are the benefits of having an 8-3 record, Bears fans. With the team becoming a national story, the NFL pushed back the start of its December 12 game against the New England Patriots at Soldier Field to 3:15. It's the second Bears game this season to be moved and, if the NFC North title is on the line when the Bears face Green Bay on January 2, that game may be moved. All the other games are locked in at their regular start times.

The Bears defense versus Tom Brady and that dink and dunk Patriots offense? That's appointment television, folks.
