The Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers will face off on Thursday night to kick off Week 7 of the 2016 NFL Season. Chicago is one of the worst teams in the league, and the Packers have been a dysfunctional offensive mess so far this season. Thursday Night Football games are usually pretty crap, but tonight’s has a chance to be a megadeath of shit. Let’s hope that the fact that Bears-Packers is the oldest rivalry in the NFL brings some much-needed intensity and intrigue to an otherwise brutal game.
Chicago’s matchup with Green Bay in Week 7 will be streamed on Twitter. A partnership between Twitter and the NFL was announced earlier this year and Roger Goodell said the following on the partnership:
“Twitter is where live events unfold and is the right partner for the NFL as we take the latest step in serving fans around the world live NFL football. There is a massive amount of NFL-related conversation happening on Twitter during our games and tapping into that audience, in addition to our viewers on broadcast and cable, will ensure Thursday Night Football is seen on an unprecedented number of platforms this season. This agreement also provides additional reach for those brands advertising with our broadcast partners.”
The partnership between the NFL and Twitter, which was announced in early April, will see the social media platform enter the live sports streaming arena for the first time. Twitter will stream 10 football games on Thursday night.
With Brian Hoey as their starter and a 1-5, the Bears’ season is essentially cooked, although beating Green Bay will serve as enough motivation. As for the Packers, Aaron Rodgers and their offense have looked uncharacteristically out of sync this year. While the division title may be out of reach due to the 5-0 Minnesota Vikings, a win tonight would put them at 4-2 and right in the thick of the NFC Wild Card race. COED likes the Packers at home tonight, 20-13.
