Thursday, September 28, 2017 | 8:25 PM ET | Lambeau Field | Referee: John Hussey

Week 4 kicks off on Thursday night (8:25 PM ET, CBS/NFLN/Amazon Prime) with an NFC North showdown as the Green Bay Packers welcome the Chicago Bears to Lambeau Field. The Bears and Packers will meet for the 195th time (including playoffs), the most meetings between two teams in NFL history, with the series tied 94-94-6. Thursday’s game marks the first matchup between the two franchises with both teams coming off overtime wins in the previous week.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers connected on a 72-yard pass with wide receiver Geronimo Allison in overtime and kicker Mason Crosby converted a 27-yard field goal to give the Packers a 27-24 victory over Cincinnati last week. Rodgers ranks second in the NFL with 967 passing yards (322.3 per game) and has thrown for at least 300 yards in all three games this season. Chicago running back Jordan Howard rushed for 37 yards in overtime, including the game-winning 19-yard touchdown in the Bears’ 23-17 win against Pittsburgh in Week 3. Howard (164 scrimmage yards, two rushing touchdowns) and rookie running back Tarik Cohen (102 scrimmage yards) both eclipsed 100 scrimmage yards in Chicago’s first win of the season.

The NFL has partnered with Amazon Prime this season and will once again use a “Tri-Cast” distribution model of broadcast (CBS/NBC), cable (NFL Network) and digital (Amazon Prime) for 10 Thursday Night Football games and a Christmas Day contest. CBS and NBC will each broadcast five Thursday Night Football games which will be simulcast on NFL Network and streamed to Amazon Prime members worldwide. NBC will also broadcast the Christmas Day game.
