Tuesday Night Fortnite presented by Fanatics is a weekly Fortnite competition featuring the NFL’s best talent teaming up with Fortnite’s best streamers.
Tuesday Night featuring Fortnite is an exciting collaboration between Fortnite and the NFLPA, presented by Fanatics. Tonight’s match up features two prominent NFL players going head to head for Fortnite supremacy.
Chicago Bears running back and noted Fortnite player Tarik Cohen will team up with popular streamer Khoa in tonight’s action. They’ll take on Detroit Lions punter Sam Martin and fan favorite GingerPop.
The match begins at 8:00 p.m. ET on Twitch.tv/FYBtv.
Cohen is enjoying what you may call a breakout season with the Bears. It’s been clear for some time that he was going to be good, but until this season, the Bears were not. Now, at 6-3, sitting atop the NFC North, they look like a true playoff contender.
Cohen is a big part of the new young, exciting Bears offense. Under first-year head coach Matt Nagy, Cohen has a combined 679 yards from scrimmage so far this season, adding five touchdowns for good measure. His dangerous ability as a pass-catching back makes him an integral part of the Bears offense.
He’s also an avid gamer. Aptly nicknamed “the human joystick,” he’s known around the league as one of the NFL’s best Fortnite players. He and Khoa will be difficult to stop in tonight’s matchup.
Across the virtual field from Cohen and Khoa will be Lions punter and tough guy Martin. Martin left last week’s game against the Bears after a big hit and was hospitalized, only to return to the team and tell the media he was fine and would be playing this week. Punters aren’t usually known to be gritty, but Martin’s toughness shouldn’t be questioned.
Martin teams up with GingerPop, a popular streamer and Fortnite pro (Rogue) who frequents the Skirmish tournaments, finishing as high as 13th against the best competition in the world. They’ll have their work cut out for them tonight, but don’t be surprised if they take home the prize.
Tuesday Night Fortnite is a fun event in which two teams collect points through eliminations, victory royales and various tasks voted on by the viewers in real-time. These challenges keep the matches very interesting and exciting, often putting the players in different and dangerous situations.
Be sure to tune in tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET on Find Your Battlefield’s Twitch page at Twitch.tv/FYBtv. You can also catch all of the previous week’s matches on this page.
On the field, the Chicago Bears will look to complete a season sweep on their division rival Detroit Lions next Thursday, Nov. 22 on Thursday Night Football. The Lions will likely be looking to play spoiler by then, as they are all but mathematically eliminated.
Both Tuesday Night feat. Fortnite and Thursday Night Football can be seen at their respective times on Twitch.tv this season. Be sure to tune in for all the action.
Enjoy the stream!
