The Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears Nov. 28 game has been moved from 1:00 p.m. (ET) to 4:15 p.m. (ET) on FOX. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Baltimore Ravens matchup was also moved to the 4:15 p.m. (ET) slot. On Nov. 28, there are now three late afternoon games with St. Louis Rams-Denver Broncos joining Eagles-Bears and Bucs-Ravens.

With both the Eagles and Bears sitting at 6-3 it only makes sense to move the game to prime time, the same for the Ravens-Bucs match up. These two games could see teams that have records of 7-3.

In other news, Bears WR/KR Devin Hester has been named NFC special teams player of the week for his performance in Sunday’s 27-13 win over the Minnesota Vikings at Soldier Field.

Returning kickoffs for the first time this season, Hester had kickoff returns of 68 and 32 yards as well as a 42-yard punt return.

“Devin has it going right now,” said coach Lovie Smith. “Guys are doing a great job blocking for him and he’s feeling it as far as thinking he can go the distance each time.”

Hester needs one TD to set the all-time league record for most career return touchdowns. Hester currently shares the record with Brian Mitchell with 13.
