For the second straight week, the Chicago Bears are playing a football game in front of a national audience in a prime time television slot. Before the season started, that made sense, as the Bears had all of their weapons healthy and were expected to have a bounce-back year in John Fox's second season with the team.
All of that came off the rails, though, in Week 2's Monday Night Football loss against the Philadelphia Eagles. Jay Cutler was knocked out of the game with a thumb injury on his throwing hand, and a slew of other players, including starters Eddie Goldman, Danny Trevathan, and Lamarr Houston, were all injured in the game.
Put simply: The Bears were embarrassed on national television.
And now they get to come back to prime time a week later and play the Dallas Cowboys. If you've got NBC and want to watch Sunday Night Football on television, you're all set.
But if you're wanting to live-stream the game, what are your options?
- If you subscribe to NBC, you can use SNF All-Access. Just sign in and fire up the stream.
- You can also sign up for Sling TV, which comes with a nifty 7-day free trial. With cable-cutting becoming more popular, Sling TV is certainly an appealing option for many.
- If you're a Verizon customer, you also have the option of streaming live games.
