Thursday Night Football in Week 5 will feature two teams coming off heartbreaking defeats.
On one side are the Chicago Bears. The team took a 28-7 lead at home against the Denver Broncos in a battle of winless teams before surrendering 24 unanswered points and falling 31-28. Justin Fields had a career-high four touchdowns, but he also lost a fumble that was returned for a Broncos touchdown and tossed the game-sealing interception.
Then there are the Washington Commanders. Ron Rivera’s team took an early lead over the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles, fell behind in the second half and then tied the game with a touchdown on the final play of regulation. They could not capitalize in overtime, however, as Eagles kicker Jake Elliott drilled a game-winning, 54-yard field goal to drop the Commanders to 2-2 on the year.
