This will be the first time the Bears wear their orange jerseys in a primetime game.

That will give the Vikings, who have a bye this week, back-to-back Sunday Night Football appearances; they play the Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium on November 25 at 7:20 p.m.

Replacing them in the primetime spot is the Minnesota Vikings at the Chicago Bears.

The only other game unaccounted for on the remaining schedule would be Cincinnati Dec. 30.

That bumps Steelers at Jaguars to 1 p.m. EST on CBS.

Those include the Steelers' home games against the Chargers at 1 p.m. Dec. 2 and New England Dec. 16 at 4:25 p.m., and road games at Denver at 4 p.m. November 25 and New Orleans at 4:25 p.m. Dec. 23.

Chicago now leads the NFC North at 5-3, a half-game in front of Minnesota, which has a bye this week. Now, the lights will be on at Soldier Field as the Bears hit Sunday night Football for the first time since Week 1. The Vikings (5-3-1) are on a bye this week. Two years ago, Washington played on the Sunday night before Thanksgiving before facing the Cowboys in the late-afternoon Thanksgiving game.
