Chicago Bears Thomas Jones... SetNumber: X74720 TK1

The Chicago Bears are 3-3 and coming off a disappointing loss last week, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 5-1 and looking for their best start in franchise history with a win. On paper this isn’t a good matchup for the Bears, but the Bears weren’t supposed to beat the Bucs last year either, and they did so behind good games by Khalil Mack, Allen Robinson, and Nick Foles.

Anything can happen once that whistle blows.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Bears vs Buccaneers week 7 matchup.

When is the game?

Sunday, October 24 at 3:25 p.m. CT

Where is the game?

Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Florida


Florida in October is a bit different than Chicago, so it’ll be hot (high of 89F) and humid (64%) with some scattered thunderstorms possible in the afternoon. (link)

How to watch

The game will be on CBS with their number 1 crew Jim Nantz and Tony Romo on the call, and if you live in the red of this map (and Alaska and Hawaii), then you’ll get to see the Bears!
