The NFL is gearing up for the start of the 2020 season and, while the games might look a little different this year without the stadiums packed with rowdy fans, but the games will go on. The 2020 NFL season is kicking off as usual this year, beginning Sept. 10 with a Thursday Night Football game between the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs, airing on NBC.
The first Thursday night game will air on NBC, with NFL Network and FOX taking most of the games, and Amazon Prime Video scoring streaming rights alongside the networks.
With that said, the right NFL streaming option for you will vary depending on your fandom priorities. Basically, the games are spread across five primary networks: ESPN, NBC, Fox, CBS, and the NFL Network. Your location also determines which games get aired on your local stations.
Check out the full Thursday Night Football schedule and find out how to stream each of the games, below.
