    The Washington Commanders (2-2) return home to open up Week 5 play by hosting the Chicago Bears (0-4) on Thursday night. The Commanders come into this matchup off of an emotional overtime loss to their division rival Philadelphia Eagles. The Commanders’ offense performed very well despite the loss. The Bears lost in Week 4 after leading the Broncos 28 to 7 in the late third quarter. The Bears have yet to win a game in 2023.

    Main Storylines to Watch

    What can go wrong for the Commanders? Washington played very well in Week 4 against the Eagles on the road. The offense moved the ball through the air and ground pretty efficiently and they forced an undefeated team to go into overtime before eventually losing. Week 4 was an overtime loss to an undefeated team and now they have a winless team at home in Week 5. The Commanders are an up and down team, but they are the better team in this matchup. Hopefully for Commanders fans, this will be a stress-free home win.

    Has Justin Fields learned to run a passing offense or do the Broncos just stink? Fields has been abysmal in the passing game all season until he went off through the air against Denver in their Week 4 matchup. Fields was drafted high in fantasy for his rushing ability. If Fields can put both together, he is an absolute stud for fantasy and this Bears team will start putting up more points and maybe even win more games.
