In 2020, the essential home for "Thursday Night Football" during the NFL season will be FOX. In association with NFL Network and ESPN just as NBC, NFL fans can look advances to a sum of 15 games on Thursday night.
The following two midweek games will be vital for the season finisher structure in the NFL. The Las Vegas Raiders are presently the No. 9 seed in the AFC. The group is hoping to bounce the Baltimore Ravens and the Miami Dolphins to guarantee the No. 7 seed. The Raiders will attempt to refocus with a matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers.
Despite scoring over 25 points for the tenth time this season, the Saints were defeated last week 32-29 by the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs. After falling behind 14-0, the Saints took a 15-14 lead on Kansas City early in the fourth quarter on a 24-yard touchdown connection between QB Drew Brees and RB Latavius Murray.
The New Orleans defense hung strong throughout the contest as the Chiefs (92) ran 40 more plays than the Saints (52), but third and fourth quarter runs of 15 and ten points respectively consistently gave Kansas City an edge.
Even though this game is technically on a Friday, the Christmas special will be a part of Amazon Prime’s package for Thursday Night Football. If you don’t have Amazon Prime, you can catch all the action on FOX.
Hopefully, by this time, Drew Brees will be fully recovered from a punctured lung and his 11 rib fractures. He has missed the last three games due to the injury, and his timeline to return is up in the air. If Brees returns, the Saints could be still in contention for the No. 1 seed in the NFC.
As for the Vikings, the team could be in contention for making the postseason. The Vikings are currently the No. 8 seed in the NCF and are just one game back of the Cardinals. The Vikings have been hot as of late, winning four of their last five games. If this game has significance, it will make Christmas even more exciting.
