Full 2020 NFL Thursday Night Football schedule

The NFL’s short week continues with another season of Thursday Night Football. We break down the full schedule on FOX and streaming on Amazon Prime for 2020.

The NFL announced the 2020 schedule on Thursday, and we’ve got the full rundown for all the Thursday Night Fooball matchups. The season is scheduled to start on Thursday, September 10th — not an official TNF game — with the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Houston Texans, and wrap up on Sunday, February 7, 2021 with Super Bowl 55. The Covid-19 pandemic might have something to say about that, but for the time being the NFL is moving forward as though the season will start on time.

FOX is broadcasting the TNF schedule once again, led by broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman in the booth, with Erin Andrews and Kristina Pink on the sidelines, and Mike Pereira as the rules consultant. We will also get 11 TNF games from Amazon while all of them will be simulcast on NFL Network. TNF airs at 8:20 p.m. ET each week.

TNF has a history of some stinkers, but we get some big-time matchups mixed in. The biggest might be an NFC title game rematch between the Packers and 49ers in Week 9. Chiefs and Bills could be a Week 6 playoff preview if Buffalo can build off an impressive 2019. The TNF schedule actually closes out on a Friday this year. Christmas Day is Friday, so rather than a TNF matchup, we get Vikings at Saints on that Friday.

You can check out each TNF game below. Plus, we’ll be breaking down more of the schedule, including a rundown of the full season schedule, the best and worst matchups, and plenty more. All times listed are Eastern.
