What time is the NFL game tonight? TV Schedule, Channel for Bears vs Commanders in Week 6


It’s time for “Thursday Night Football” again, but the Week 6 game in this game won’t do much to excite football fans.

Commanders travel to Chicago to take on the Bears in a battle between two of the most offensively contested teams in the NFC.

Washington started the year by beating Jacksonville but has struggled in four games since. Commanders lost all of those fights, including a Week 5 loss that saw Carson Wentz throw a goal-line interception late in the fourth quarter to seal a four-point victory for the Titans.

Meanwhile, the Bears had better luck and went 2-3 in their first five outings. However, their offense ranks second to last in total yardage per game (274) and the team also scores fifth in points per game (17.2). Justin Fields hasn’t taken the step forward that many were hoping for under Matt Eberflus and Luke Getsy, and that’s part of the reason Chicago finds itself below .500 at this point in the season.

These offenses may be in trouble, but somebody must win this game on Thursday night – unless it ends in a tie. It could make for an interesting game despite the game.

NFL Week 6 Schedule

The Commanders vs. Bears game will mark an inauspicious start to Week 6, but it will set fans up for a quality NFL Sunday.

There are two games on Sunday that will get a lot of attention. The first will be the rematch of last season’s Bills vs Chiefs AFC Championship game, which is considered one of the most exciting post-season games ever played. Buffalo and MVP favorite Josh Allen will seek revenge for the Bills’ loss at the hands of Kansas City and fellow MVP contender Patrick Mahomes.

After that game – which will be the only one to start at 4:25 p.m. ET – the Cowboys (4-1) will face the Eagles (5-0) with the first place in the NFC East on the line. The Cowboys are on a streak of four straight wins with Cooper Rush while the Eagles picked up their fifth straight win by beating Arizona in Week 5. Both teams are deep, talented and have strong defenses that should provide a good test for every opposing quarterback.

Finally, “Monday Night Football” will feature a battle between AFC foes West Denver and Los Angeles. The Broncos are coming off a 12-9 loss on “Thursday Night Football,” and Nathaniel Hackett will need to perform better to get his team back on track in this one. This contest could be interesting considering the unpredictability of Hackett and Chargers counterpart Brandon Staley when it comes to fourth-game calls.

Below is the full schedule for Week 6 of the 2022 NFL season.
