Prime Video’s Thursday Night Football Schedule Announced

By Jessica Lerner 

The official 2022 schedule for Prime Video’s first season of exclusive Thursday Night Football is out.

The Thursday Night Football schedule begins with a matchup of AFC West favorites, as Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs host Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers on Sept. 15.

“The first exclusive season of TNF on Prime Video is officially can’t-miss TV, with star power like Lamar Jackson and the Ravens taking on Tom Brady and the Bucs, divisional rivalries featuring Bills at Patriots and Chargers at Chiefs, a fun West Coast matchup between the Raiders and the Super Bowl Champion Rams and a heavyweight showdown with Derrick Henry and the Titans visiting iconic Lambeau Field to face Aaron Rodgers and the Packers,” said Marie Donoghue, vice president of Global Sports Video at Amazon, in a statement. “It’s an action-packed inaugural TNF lineup, with must-see games NFL fans won’t want to miss. We can’t wait to kick things off on Prime Video this September.”


Al Michaels joins Emmy-winning analyst Kirk Herbstreit (of college football fame) for the first time in the inaugural Thursday Night Football broadcast booth this season. Pro Football Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez is also joining the TNF team as an analyst for its pregame, halftime and postgame shows. In addition, Fred Gaudelli, a 24-time Emmy winner and Michaels’ longtime producer at NBC and previously ABC, will serve as executive producer of Prime Video’s Thursday Night Football.
