On Thursday, October 5, the Chicago Bears take on the Washington Commanders at Fedex Field to begin the start of another NFL week. The game will not be broadcast on national television, as it’s Thursday Night Football’s second year exclusively being housed on Amazon Prime Video.
At 8:15 p.m. ET, Prime Video will broadcast the Commanders’ game against the Bears. The game’s play-by-play announcer will be Al Michaels, who will be accompanied by analyst Kirk Herbstreit. Kaylee Hartung will be responsible for sideline coverage.
After losing to the Denver Broncos 31-28, the Bears have now lost 14 games in a row and haven’t won an NFL game in almost a year. They have a 0-4 record in 2023. The team’s losing run appears to be getting worse, suggesting that they’re in serious need of a win.
The Commanders, meanwhile, endured terrible luck of their own in Week 4, when they lost to the Philadelphia Eagles 34-31 in overtime. Despite their season record of 2-2, there’s reason to be optimistic because of the exploits of young quarterback Sam Howell this season.
