Who plays on ‘Thursday Night Football’ tonight? Time, TV channel, schedule for NFL Week 11

It doesn’t get much better than Russell Wilson and the Seahawks against Kyler Murray and the Cardinals on Week 11’s “Thursday Night Football.”

This is what prime-time games were made for, a matchup of two superstar quarterbacks on 6-3 teams competing for the same NFC West divisional title. Seattle’s CenturyLink Field won’t have its 12th Man to help the cause, but Arizona will still be traveling to a stadium that doesn’t often see the road team come away a winner.

Wilson has struggled recently, but he’s primed to bounce back at any omment. The Cardinals will be riding a high into Thursday’s game thanks to DeAndre Hopkins’ game-winning touchdown grab against the Bills in Week 10.

Below is more about the Week 11 “Thursday Night Football” matchup and how to watch it.

Who plays on Thursday Night Football tonight?

Thursday Night Football continues to be simulcast on Fox and the NFL Network after NFL Network had exclusive TV rights to the games prior to Week 5. No matter which channel you choose, you’ll be listening to Joe Buck (play-by-play) and Troy Aikman (color).

This will be the second time a national audience gets to watch this matchup in 2020, after the Cardinals won 37-34 on Sunday night in Week 6. That game only ended up in prime time due to COVID-19 schedule shuffling, but Week 11’s game was supposed to be in this slot all along.

Murray’s had a good recent run in prime time, beating Dallas and Seattle in short succession earlier this season. Wilson won another big-name QB showdown in Week 2 at night when he beat Cam Newton and the Patriots. 

What time is the NFL game tonight?

All Thursday night games throughout the 2020 NFL season will start at 8:20 p.m. ET, though the TV viewing options (more on those below) have expanded beginning with Week 5.

This game will be a 5:20 p.m. local time kickoff in Seattle, while Arizona fans watching from Phoenix will see the game start at 6:20 p.m. local time. Those on the East Coast staying up to watch such a high-profile QB showdown will have their body clocks set to a usual week of TNF.

What channel is “Thursday Night Football on tonight?

Beginning in Week 5, all “Thursday Night Football” games will broadcast live on cable network Fox in addition to NFL Network. That simulcast setup will be in place through Week 16.

Week 5 is also the beginning of Thursday night broadcasts on Amazon Prime Video. Amazon will likely use this platform as a runway to setup a big bid in the next set of TV rights negotiations.
