What channel is Bears vs. Packers on today? Time, TV schedule for NFL Week 17 game

The Bears and Packers play a huge game in the NFC playoff race at 4:25 p.m. ET in Week 17.

Chicago (8-7) is in control of its playoff destiny. A win puts the Bears and Mitchell Trubisky into the playoffs. The Packers (12-3) secure the NFC’s top seed and lone first-round bye with a victory. The futures of Trubisky and Matt Nagy could be on the line, at least in regards to their Chicago tenures, too.

The first time these teams played this season, the Packers won 41-25 in Week 12. Chicago’s offense has been rolling with Trubisky, though, a big reason the Bears can hold off the Cardinals and make the playoffs. Chicago will have to handle Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams and Aaron Jones if it hopes to ensure its playoff safety.
