The Chicago Bears are on Thursday Night Football again this week, and believe it or not, head coach Matt Eberflus has a chance to even his record in prime time. If the Bears can knock off the Carolina Panthers on TNF, Eberflus will move to 3-3 in games under the lights in front of a national audience.
But the Bears will be wearing their orange alternate jerseys and helmets, and they've yet to win in that gear.
However, the Panthers haven't won in Chicago since 2006.
Something has to give!
The last time the Bears played on Thursday Night (10/5/23), Montez Sweat was still playing for Washinton, and he had a sack and a half on Justin Fields, but Fields threw for 4 TDs and 282 yards in Chicago's 40 to 20 win.
Here's everything you need to know for the Bears vs. Panthers game!
Kickoff is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. (CT) at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois. There is no rain in the forecast, a low of 37F, with winds from the west at 10 to 15 mph.
