Kyle Brandt implores NFL to stop putting Bears-Packers in primetime


(Audacy) The "Should the Detroit Lions play on Thanksgiving?" debate appears to have shifted to a new matchup that a national -- and seemingly local -- audience is increasingly tired of seeing.

After the Packers earned a 27-10 win against the Bears on Sunday Night Football in Week 2, "Good Morning Football" co-host Kyle Brandt implored the schedule-makers to stop picking the two teams to play in marquee slots.

It's interesting that Brandt was so willing to reveal his exhaustion with this matchup, given that his show airs on the NFL Network, which is owned by the league. The Packers have won seven straight in the rivalry, including the last five games by double-digits. The last three Bears-Packers game at Lambeau Field have all been Sunday Night Football broadcasts.

The good news for Brandt is that when the Bears welcome the Packers to Soldier Field in Week 13, it is slated to be a noon CT start time on Fox. Perhaps for the foreseeable future, that's the slot that the NFL should schedule the Bears-Packers matchups.
