The Bears picked up their fourth win (and first in a month) last week by taking down the Vikings, also picking up their first divisional win of the year. This week, they get a team with fewer wins than they have - the two-win Tampa Bay Buccaneers, fresh off a win of their own against the Redskins last week and coached by Lovie Smith.

At this point, if the playoffs are in sight for the Bears, they have to win every chance they can get. So how can you follow the game?

Game Time: 1:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM CT

Location: Soldier Field - Chicago, Illinois

TV: It's on FOX with Thom Brennamen and David Diehl. In other news, hoo boy... Anyway, it's the only game the Chicago area's getting at that time slot; for everything else being played at that time, check the 506.

Radio: 780 WBBM carries the game, and the audio can be streamed over at the 780 WBBM web site. Jeff Joniak and Tom Thayer are a much better listen than Brennamen and Diehl.

Online Streaming: Nope. We don't condone it. We won't allow it. There are legal methods if you don't have cable, some of which are found here.

Other Online Streaming: But we'll be back again with the WCG Sunday Livestream. Sam and I will go live at 9:30 AM CT, and there may or may not be a special guest with us.

Odds: The Bears are favored by 5 points heading into this one. For more, here's the full SBN Odds Page.

Pick: I'm going to go with the Bears on this one, 27-17.

The Enemy: Bucs Nation covers the Buccaneers for SB Nation. They can be found on Twitter at @Bucs_Nation.

What about watching with you guys?: If you want to follow us for whatever insight we offer, there'll be the game threads to socialize with other Bears fans. On the Twitter, we can be found at @WindyCGridiron, @Kev_WCG,@SJS_illini, and @wiltfongjr.

Next Week: The Bears play the Lions on Thanksgiving, so enjoy some pigskin with your turkey. (And there will not be a Livestream on Thanksgiving day, just saying.)
