CBS will be broadcasting Sunday’s NFL game between Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The game will take place at 4:25 p.m. ET at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay.

The Bears are coming off yet another loss to the Packers, and saw Aaron Rodgers dominate them late in the game once again. Justin Fields has taken over as the starting quarterback and should be given more chances to make plays against Tampa Bay’s defense. The Bucs are struggling in the secondary due to injuries, although Antoine Winfield Jr. is expected to play.

The defending Super Bowl champions Buccaneers have continued marching on, with Tom Brady looking to re-write the record books. The 44-year old quarterback is throwing touchdowns left and right, although he won’t have TE Rob Gronkowski for this matchup. Leonard Fournette appears to have the lead running back job and Tampa Bay’s receivers should be fired up against a struggling Chicago defense.
