The LA Chargers have lost both games since the team's Week 5 bye and desperately need to get back on track in Week 8. While many fans have already checked out on the season, a loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 8 would guarantee that the Bolts will not make the playoffs this season.
Chicago is coming at a perfect time on the schedule for the Chargers. No team in the NFL can be overlooked (that is a recipe for losing) but the Bears are one of the worst teams in the league. With Tyson Bagent under center, there is no reason for the Chargers to lose this game.
It is a big week for the Chargers with a lot at stake. Here is everything that fans need to know leading into the contest.
Chargers vs Bears odds:
The Chargers are currently 8.5-point favorites over the Bears at home in Week 8. This makes the Chargers a -450 betting favorite while the Bears are a +350 betting underdog. The point total for the game has been placed at 46.5 points, which is right around most other Week 8 games.
Chargers vs Bears game time:
The Chargers are hosting the Bears at SoFi Stadium on Sunday Night Football so this is not the usual start time for a Sunday game. Kick-off is scheduled for 5:20 p.m. PT on Sunday night with coverage of the game beginning an hour before kick-off.
How to watch Chargers-Bears:
There are multiple ways to watch the Chargers host the Bears on Sunday Night Football. Those with cable can simply tune to NBC to watch the Chargers on primetime. Those without cable can utilize our friends at Fubo, who are offering new users a seven-day free trial.
NBC is not the only way that fans can watch this game, however. All Sunday Night Football games will also be broadcast to Peacock to users with a paid subscription. The Chargers are playing a Peacock-exclusive game later in the season against the Buffalo Bills, so it may be time to sign up.
