In need of a football fix

As June approaches Bears fans are searching for something to fill the time until the Bears head for Bourbonnais in two months. So why not kickback and flip on a game tonight.

For the first time ever on cable and satellite, NFL Network unveils NFL Replay, a new series on Sunday afternoons and Monday nights that will re-broadcast two-hour versions of network television's coverage of memorable regular-season games — complete with the original network footage, graphics and play-by-play commentary.

For its first season, NFL Network selected games won in the closing moments or in overtime, and initially will feature Sunday afternoon network regular-season games from 1998 through 2002.

With airings Sunday afternoons and Monday nights, NFL Network will televise NFL Replay in a familiar time slot, when fans are used to seeing NFL games.

NFL Replay airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and in May will also air Sundays at 1 p.m. ET.

Dave Wannstedt's last year in Chicago saw the Bears finish with 4-12 and last in the division. However two of the better games from that season will be shown on NFL Network over the next month.

Monday 5/31 at 8 p.m. ET/PT — Jaguars vs. Bears (9/6/98 — 23-24)
Kickoff Weekend 1998 saw Mark Brunell and the Jaguars travel to Soldier Field in a game that would be decided on one of the game's final plays.

Sunday 6/27 at 1 p.m. ET — Bears vs. Lions (10/4/1998 — 31-27)
Quarterback Erik Kramer and the Bears scored 21 points in the fourth quarter of this regular-season game against Charlie Batch and the Detroit Lions. The outcome remained uncertain late into regulation.
