Two national TV games in Week 10

We're just emerging from Week 8 and preparing for Week 9 here in the NFC North. But if you're making plans for Week 10, be advised that the NFL and its television partners are already gearing up for a big-time second half of the season here in the NFC North.

Kickoff for the Nov. 13 game between the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears at Soldier Field has been moved to 4:15 p.m. ET. The NFL opted not to flex it into the Sunday night slot, however, and instead will keep the New England Patriots and New York Jets there.

Regardless, you can consider it a broadcast warm-up for "Monday Night Football" the following evening at Lambeau Field, pitting the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings.

Consider yourself warned.
