Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming and more

Early and often, Hank. Early and often. - Dilip Vishwanat

After a big comeback victory against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1, the Chicago Bears welcome the Minnesota Vikings to Soldier Field for a big divisional battle. Who will get the early leg up? We'll find out around 3pm Chicago time.

How exciting was that?

The Bears start the season off at 1-0 after the big game against the Bengals last week. No sacks given up, plenty of offensive points scored, and everyone on the Bears sideline is all smiles.

Well, it's time to do it again, and this time it's for real. The Vikings come to town after a disappointing loss to the Detroit Lions, who tried their absolute hardest to give away the game.

The VIkings figure to run the best running back in the game early and often. It'll be up to the Bears to take that dynamic off the field (scoring a lot of points early would help) and force Christian Ponder to beat them through the air, a tough task for a guy who many will be quick to point out isn't doing so hot.

Also, let's hope the Illini didn't ruin the field while they were stinking up the joint.

Game time: 1pm EST/12pm CST

Location: The one and only Soldier Field, Chicago, IL

TV: Well, the VIkings are not as sexy an opponent as the Bengals (Oh, also, the Mannings apparently play each other?) The game will be on Fox regionally, so check the506.com maps to see if it will be available for you Otherwise, NFL Sunday Ticket or go to a bar or something.

Radio: WBBM 780AM | WLEY (Español)

Streaming: NFL live streaming isn't super-easy. We don't support illegal streams. Here's an article of ideas for you.

Odds: Bears favored by six, and the old adage is you get three for being at home.

NFL.com Preview: Right over here.

Injuries: Check out Schweick's injury report here.

Behind Enemy Lines: SBNation's Daily Norseman

Coming up next time: The Bears travel to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers on Sunday Night Football. Whoever booked that game probably wasn't expecting bad Steelers.
