The Seattle Seahawks’ 2022 NFL preseason continues with their only home appearance in this three-game exhibition run.

After a loss last week to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Seattle hosts the Chicago Bears in weather that is the total opposite of their regular season meeting last year. Instead of a snowstorm we’re getting temperatures near 90 and plenty of sunshine throughout the day.

Drew Lock was supposed to start this matchup, only for a positive COVID-19 test to hand the keys back to Geno Smith. Unless the Seahawks want to give Smith the entire game, we should expect the preseason debut of former Washington Huskies quarterback Jacob Eason at some point in the 2nd half. Not only is there no Drew Lock, but rookie running back Kenneth Walker III is recovering from surgery so he won’t be available on this Thursday night.

We still have plenty to look forward to, including more Boye Mafe, Tariq Woolen, and Coby Bryant. Hopefully the offensive line’s stellar showing last week continues into this evening against a Bears team that is rebuilding after firing Matt Nagy. We’ll presumably get a look at Justin Fields after Fields did not play against the Seahawks last season.

Here are all the details you need on tonight’s matchup, including broadcast information, live streaming options, radio commentary, and more:
