Skins/Bears game blocked in DC?

Is this game "exclusively" on NFL network or is it also provided on another channel on Basic/Extended cable in the DC area?

I dont think I can access NFL Network.

What is the channel # for NFL network?
What is the channel # the game would be on if other than the NFL network?

I don't want to have to go to a bar.
I tap into Cable in the Rockville, MD area through a slingbox

No, they have to allow a local channel to air the local team games (unless there's a blackout due to not selling out). It works the same way with MNF.

*edit - Being down there in Chesapeake, you may be out of the "local" area, and therefore are not able to get it anywhere but on NFLN.

I think your right about the Tidewater area but I do have dish network so thats not the problem. I wish it was on regular TV then I could tell all the people coming over to stay at home. I don't mind a few people over but last week it was like people just kept showing up and saying that they would be back for the Skins game. This week will be worse with the Skins playing and people know I'll be out in the garage with the wood stove cranking.
