The third week of the 2013 NFL Preseason schedule continues Friday, August 23 and we will see the Chicago Bears travel to the O.co Coliseum to take on the Oakland Raiders. The kickoff time is 10:00 PM ET and the game will be televised on the NFL Network on various cable or satellite providers.
Bears head coach Marc Trestman has already confirmed that the first-stringers will play at least until halftime. The Bears' defense, albeit without Brian Urlacher, D.J. Moore and Israel Idonije, is still a top-notch unit.
D.J. Hayden will make his exhibition debut for the Raiders against the Bears in his first game action of any kind since a near-fatal practice collision ended his college career last November. He tore a vein near his heart, which is 95 percent fatal in the field, according to doctors, and is most commonly associated with high-speed motor vehicle accidents.
Hayden worked his way back to health and the Raiders selected him 12th overall even though some teams believed he was too much of a risk.
You can watch Bears vs. Raiders live online stream by subscription on the NFL’s official site.
NFL Preseason Live will cost subscribers $14.99 for the duration of the preseason, but allows fans to see any of the 65 preseason games, including dual or quad screen views of multiple games. The NFL Preseason Live subscription service runs until September 15.
