Every NFL fan that isn't a fan of streaming loathes Thursday Night Football. After Amazon Prime purchased the rights to carry the Thursday night broadcasts, fans moaned and groaned over needing another streaming service to watch the games. For those in Chicago, that is becoming a reality as fans figure out how to watch the Chicago Bears and Washington Commanders on Thursday Night Football.


The Bears are 2-3 after back-to-back losses to the New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings. However, optimism bleeds through ahead of this matchup, especially with Commanders' QB Carson Wentz potentially sidelined for the Thursday contest. It is a perfect time for the Bears to strike at home and get back to .500.
