With the official release of the 2024 NFL schedule, fans now know when every matchup will take place, and which games will be played under the lights on National television. With Thursday Night Football, Sunday Night Football, and a Monday Night Football, there will be a ton of primetime games, and the league did its best to make sure they are high-stakes, drama-filled games.

One of the Thursday Night Football matchups is between the New Orleans Saints and the Denver Broncos. With the game being in New Orleans, and Sean Payton being the head coach of the Broncos, this week will be all about Payton’s return to New Orleans. That’s exactly the kind of storyline the league wants out of its primetime games.

Let’s take a look at the entire Thursday night schedule, where all games will take place on Prime Video, and will kickoff at 8:15 PM ET.

*This does not include Thanksgiving Day games, which will take place on Thursday of Week 13.*

It’s important to note that the Thursday Night Football crew will also broadcast the Black Friday game in Kansas City between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Las Vegas Raiders. While this Week 13 game will be on a Friday afternoon instead of a Thursday night, it will still be on Prime Video.

As evident by the schedule, the league wants these Thursday matchups to be tense, competitive games. That’s why, including the Black Friday game, 12 of the 16 games are divisional matchups. Games within a division have built in rivalries and are typically hard-fought games, regardless of the quality of each team. Hopefully, that will be the case in 2024, and fans will be treated to some great Thursday Night Football matchups to start every NFL week.
