This could be a tough one for Detroit Lions fans.

Regardless of your feelings towards Matthew Stafford, he was our quarterback for over a decade. Though playoff success eluded his teams, there is no questioning the impact he had on and off the field for Detroit. Today, we get to witness something new, and perhaps something old as well.

Stafford is no stranger to the Bears, and the NFC North rivalry continues in his Rams debut, even though he now resides in the NFC North. The Bears themselves are a new-look team with Andy Dalton at the helm. though it remains to be seen how long that will last with Justin Fields waiting in the wings. Can the Bears show some improvement from the days of Mitchell Trubisky, or will Stafford and company kick off this era of Rams football on a high note?

Here is how to watch tonight’s game:

Time: 8:20 p.m. ET
Location: SoFi Stadium—Inglewood, CA
