It’s time for TNF. This week it’s all about the NFC North and the bitter rivalry between the Bears and the Packers. Heading into this game, both teams are actually tied with each other the course of their history, with each squad having 94 wins over the other.
The Bears are riding high after defeating the Steelers in overtime for their first win of the season. The Packers snuck by the Bengals in a overtime win last week. Speaking of firsts, tonight will also be the first NFL game streamed on Amazon Prime Video, so you can watch it there if you’re a subscriber.
The big key for tonight will be whether the Packers can overcome their usual slow start. Through the first three weeks of the season, Green Bay has only scored 10 points in the first half of their games compared to 47 in the second half of their games. If the Bears can score early and pile it on, the Packers might not be able to make a comeback, especially if Chicago leans heavily on their excellent run game.
However things turn out, this is your open thread for Thursday Night Football. Enjoy it in the comments below.
