After a lackluster performance yesterday, the New England Patriots are already on to their next game. But while the team has set its sights on the Detroit Lions – and apparently wide receiver Josh Gordon even before that –, the NFL’s second week is not yet over: tonight, the Chicago Bears will host the Seattle Seahawks in a battle of two winless teams.
Here’s what you need to know about the matchup:
Time: 8:15 p.m. ET

Patriots rooting guide
While both teams are playing in the NFC and therefore have minimal impact on the Patriots’ 2018 season as it stands right now, New England still has a clear rooting interest with the future in mind: during this year’s draft, the Patriots traded away their second-round selection to the Bears in exchange for two draft picks – one of them Chicago’s 2019 second-rounder. Naturally, the Patriots want this pick to come as early as possible on day two and a Seahawks win tonight should help. Go Seattle!
