The 50th season of Monday Night Football will begin with the now-traditional doubleheader on ESPN: New Orleans Saints host Houston Texans at 7:10 p.m. ET, followed by Oakland Raiders entertaining the Denver Broncos at 10:20 p.m. ET.

Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy showed against the New York Giants, when he had running back Tarik Cohen throw a pass on the final play of regulation for a touchdown, that he’ll call any play at any time. Expect anything with Nagy. On third-and-goal, in a huge nationally televised game against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night, Nagy went to the final few pages of the playbook again.

Mitchell Trubisky is just about ready to return to the Chicago Bears' lineup. Trubisky said he is ''really close to 100 percent'' and expects to play against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night after missing the past two games because of a right shoulder injury. Trubisky was hurt sliding late in a win over Minnesota on Nov. 18.

There are signs the Chicago Bears' defense is leaking, and it couldn't come at a worse time. Whether it was stopping the run in the second half or giving up big plays in the passing game, the defense wasn't as dominant as in other games during Sunday's 30-27 loss in overtime to the New York Giants. Coach Matt Nagy thinks of it as an anomaly, but it's an issue the Bears must fix fast with the powerful Los Angeles Rams coming to Chicago on Sunday night.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky was listed as doubtful Friday and likely will miss his second straight game because of a right shoulder injury when the NFC North leaders visit the New York Giants on Sunday. Trubisky

The Chicago Bears did well on Thanksgiving on the road against divisional rival Detroit, with backup quarterback Chase Daniel making his first start since 2014. Daniel will likely have another road test Sunday because starter Mitchell Trubisky is listed as doubtful for the team’s Week 13 matchup against the New York Giants. Sidelined again: Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is listed as doubtful for the team’s game against the Giants on Sunday.

New York Giants defensive coordinator James Bettcher had no intention of designing two game plans, even though Chicago Bears starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has a shoulder injury. Bettcher is getting the Giants (3-8) ready to face the Bears' offense, and it doesn't matter whether Trubisky is back at the helm Sunday at MetLife Stadium or veteran backup Chase Daniel is running the show again for Chicago (8-3).

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- ??? Want to get the New York Giants' attention this week? Just mention Chicago Bears linebacker Khalil Mack. Mack has been a force in his first year with the Bears (8-3).

Chicago Bears: Mitchell Trubisky is not practicing on Wednesday and head coach Matt Nagy said that means Chase Daniel will be prepared to start his fourth career game on Sunday against the New York Giants. Trubisky is likely to be a "game-time decision," Nagy said.

Chase Daniel led the Chicago Bears to a win on Thanksgiving Day in place of Mitchell Trubisky and may have to do the same this Sunday against the New York Giants. Trubisky has a shoulder injury and, while the Bears are taking it one day at a time, the team are likely to start looking towards the playoffs as Chicago lead the NFC North with an 8-3 record.
