Is Monday the biggest Chicago sports day of 2017? It very well might be.
From Game 3 of the Cubs-Nationals NLDS, to Mitch Trubisky's NFL debut on primetime television, to the Blackhawks-Maple Leafs Original 6 matchup, it's a stacked lineup.
The best part? NBC Sports Chicago has you covered for all three games.
Let us break it down for you.
Game 3 of the NLDS
The Cubs and Nationals will square off in Game 3 of the NLDS at Wrigley Field with the series tied 1-1, and there's so much intrigue to this game.
Will the Cubs bounce back from a heart-breaking loss in Game 2? How will Jose Quintana perform in his first career postseason start? Or what about Max Scherzer, who's nursing a hamstring injury?
Check out how the Cubs and Nationals will line up in Game 3. Spoiler: there's a surprise in Joe Maddon's.
Mitch Trubisky's NFL debut
On the other side of town, it's Trubisky time. After John Fox called it quits with Mike Glennon after four starts, the No. 2 overall pick will get his turn. The Bears' 23-year-old quarterback will be making his NFL debut on prime time television against the division rival Minnesota Vikings.
How will the rook, who has only played in 13 college games, fare in his NFL debut? Our Bears writers JJ Stankevitz and John "Moon" Mullin give their prediction.
Hottest NHL teams do battle in Original 6 matchup
How about that Blackhawks start? Sure, it's only two games, but a +13 goal differential is pretty darn impressive. Everything seems to be clicking early for the Blackhawks. In case you missed it though, the Maple Leafs are just as hot as the Blackhawks offensively. Both teams have scored 15 goals through two games of the regular season. Which team will remain undefeated after three? Here's a look at three things to watch in that game.
Moral of the story: if you haven't set your DVRs, do it, because it's going to be an exciting day for Chicago sports. And you won't want to miss it.
