Is there Thursday Night Football this week?

The NFL schedule passes a significant marker in Week 17.

The 2021 NFL regular season is fast coming to a close and Week 17 brings a significant marker. This marks the first week we will not have a Thursday game. We get 15 games on Sunday and one game on Monday.

Technically the Thursday Night Football schedule does not start until Week 2 because Week 1’s Thursday opener uses the Sunday Night Football broadcast team. And technically, TNF in Week 16 was the Browns-Packers game on Christmas Day rather than 49ers-Titans two days prior.

It’s all kind of absurd, but whatever the case, Week 17 and Week 18 will not have a Thursday game. Additionally, Week 18 will not have a Monday game, instead having all 32 teams playing on Sunday to wrap up the regular season schedule.

Here’s a look at the complete NFL schedule for Week 17.
