How to watch Packers-Bears.

The oldest rivalry in the NFL resumes on Sunday night when the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears clash for the first time this season.

It’s a big game for both teams who are both in playoff contention and looking to bounce back from their previous game.

Want to watch the game or listen live? Here’s how:

Date: Sunday, Nov. 29
Kickoff time: 7:20 p.m. CT
Location: Green Bay, WI
Stadium: Lambeau Field
TV channel: NBC
Radio: WTMJ Milwaukee/WIXX Green Bay
Live stream: NBC Live Extra, fuboTV

The Packers enter this week having lost their past game to the Indianapolis Colts in overtime and three of their past six since the bye week.

For the Bears, they’re aiming to end a four-game losing streak while also starting with Mitch Trubisky over Nick Foles, who is injured.

One advantage for the Bears is they’ve had an additional week to prepare for this game as they’ve been on bye. But this a division rivalry. These two teams already know a lot about each other.

For the Packers, this is a chance to pull away in the NFC North and potentially put the division title in the bag. Not officially, but a three-game lead with five to play would be tough to lose.

It’s a season-defining game for the Bears. If they lose a fifth straight, they’ll fall to 5-6 and likely need to run the table to have any hope of reaching the playoffs. After a promising start to the season, the Bears have struggled in recent games and have almost thrown away their playoff hopes.

They enter Week 12 a team in desperate need of a win. It’s a divisional game. They are never easy.

The Packers will need to be at their best to beat the Bears in what should be an interesting matchup between a great offense and great defense.
