How to watch Bears vs. Seahawks: Live stream, TV channel, start time

The Chicago Bears are set to take the field, just five days after their victory in the preseason opener against the Kansas City Chiefs. 

The Bears head to Seattle to face the Seahawks Thursday night, with coach Matt Eberflus planning to play his starters only six to 10 snaps due to the short turnaround. 

That presents an opportunity for others on the Chicago roster to make an impression.
