It entered Week 16 in the No. 3 seed behind Baltimore and New England.The Chiefs and Bears have not played in Chicago since 2011, and this is their first meeting since 2015. Chicago leads the all-time series 7-5 and has won two of its last three games against Kansas City, but the Chiefs this time are six-point road favorites. Below is all the info you need to watch Chiefs vs. Bears on Sunday night, including the TV channels and kickoff time for the Week 16 game.MORE: Full betting preview for Chiefs vs. BearsWho plays on Sunday Night Football tonight?Matchup: Kansas City Chiefs at Chicago BearsKickoff time: 8:20 p.m. ETIn both our Week 16 Night net picks against the spread and our straight-up predictions, Sporting News is projecting a Chiefs victory over the Bears. Below are the explanations.Pick against the spread: The Chiefs have their division wrapped up, and now they have a chance to remind everyone they are a serious threat to win the Super Bowl. Patrick Mahomes looks fully healthy, and even though the big points aren't there, they don't need them with the defense and special teams playing so well. Style points aren't needed against former Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy and the Bears, who again will be cruelly reminded that Mahomes was drafted after Mitchell Trubisky. Pick: Chiefs win 24-20 but fail to cover the spread.Straight-up prediction: This game stuck as the "Sunday Night Football" feature for Week 16 despite the Bears being eliminated from the playoffs, and we can thank the Patrick Mahomes ratings factor. Now coupled with a legit defense, Kansas City's offense is rolling again just in time for a playoff push. To be in a better seeding position for that run, the Chiefs will be motivated to take care of the Bears. Chicago's still-solid defense doesn't have enough answers for Mahomes and Co. Pick: Chiefs 27, Bears 17.MORE: Night net TV coverage map for Week 16What channel is Sunday Night Football on?TV channel (national): NBCTV channel (Kansas City): KSHBTV channel (Chicago): WMAQLive stream: fuboTVAs is the case for all "Sunday Night Football" games on NBC this season, Al Michaels will call the Chiefs vs. Bears play-by-play action, and Cris Collinsworth will provide analysis.
