    Why Bet on the Washington Commanders?

    Washington is 1-0 against the Bears all-time on Thursday Night Football, defeating them at FedExField in Week 14 of the 2007 season. Washington is 21-16 against the Bears all-time including a 9-8 record against the club in Chicago. The Commanders are 5-6 all-time on Thursday Night Football. They last played Thursday Night in Week 2 of the 2021 season at home against the New York Giants and defeated the club, 30-29. Washington will be on the road on Thursday Night Football for the first time since traveling to face the Minnesota Vikings in 2019.

    Commanders head coach Ron Rivera was a second-round draft pick by the Bears in 1984. While he did not receive his first career start until 1986, he was a valuable member of the Bears defense and played a role in the team’s Super Bowl run in 1985. He secured his first career interception against the Detroit Lions in Week 16 of that season, and he also returned a fumble for a touchdown in the 37-17 win.

    The Commanders come off their fourth straight loss, 21-17 at home to Tennessee on Sunday. David Long intercepted Carson Wentz at the 1-yard line with 6 seconds left. The interception, Wentz’s sixth of the season, overshadowed his two touchdown passes to Dyami Brown. Wentz did throw for 359 yards. The Commanders were 1 of 11 on third down, including the interception, and are now last in the NFC East.

    Good-looking rookie wideout Jahan Dotson didn’t play due to a hamstring injury and is not expected for Thursday. Brown will be in good position to build off of his breakout performance from Sunday with Dotson sitting.

    Defensive end Montez Sweat registered a career-high three tackles for loss and his third-career game with at least two sacks in Week 5. Defensive tackle Jonathan Allen has four sacks in four career Thursday games, while defensive end Efe Obada has a sack in two of his past three games overall.

    In six career Thursday starts, Wentz is 6-0 with 16 touchdowns (15 passing, one rushing) against two interceptions for a 107.4 rating. He can become the fourth quarterback ever to win at least seven consecutive Thursday games, joining Tom Brady (nine straight wins from 2002-15), Russell Wilson (nine straight from 2013-20), and Peyton Manning (eight straight from 2004-13). In three career starts against the Bears, Wentz has five touchdown passes with no interceptions.

    Why Bet on the Chicago Bears?

    The Bears were 29-22 losers at Minnesota on Sunday as Vikings QB Kirk Cousins scored on a 1-yard quarterback sneak with 2:26 remaining on Minnesota’s fifth third-down conversion of its go-ahead drive. Cameron Dantzler sealed the victory for the Vikings by ripping the ball away from former teammate Ihmir Smith-Marsette near the one-minute mark after a pass from Justin Fields to the Minnesota 39.

    Fields did have his best game of the season, completing 15-of-21 passes for 208 yards, and one touchdown, adding eight rushes for 47 yards. Fields’ biggest play of the day was called back due to an illegal block in the back penalty. On the play, Fields scrambled for a 52-yard TD, making multiple Vikings defenders look silly in the process. However, it went down as just a 12-yard run after the spot foul was assessed. Fields ranks fifth among all quarterbacks with 194 rushing yards this season and aims for his fourth straight game with at least 45 rushing yards.

    Linebacker Roquan Smith is tied for the NFL lead with 54 tackles this season and is one of three players (Jordyn Brooks and Zaire Franklin) with at least eight tackles in each of the first five weeks. He has totaled 106 tackles (10.6 per game) and 10 tackles for loss in his past 10 home games. Linebacker Robert Quinn is one of seven active players with at least 100 career sacks (102) and he aims for his fifth in a row in primetime with a sack.
