Do Thursday night NFL Network games count as 'prime time'?

Yes, if for no other reason than Deion Sanders is on the halftime and postgame shows.

I can see 2 for sure, and 3 tops.

A Sunday night game, and the Thanksgiving game vs the Lions.

Speaking of prime time, I would like to see the Texans on Hard Knocks.

I love prime time games because they are actually on TV here and I don't have to watch an online stream of the game.

The Green Bay game is a lock IMO. That could end up being one of the best games of the season. I wouldn't be surprised if we had one with the Colts or the Thanksgiving Johnson vs Johnson game.

2, 3 at the most. Probably both of those being "Thursday" games that you need NFL network to watch.

Somehow, Jacksonville will have more.

No way. We'll get at least one or two Sunday/Monday night games.

Remember, we were the only team that didn't get a Sunday night game, Costas even apologized during their broadcast. So that's one for sure. Why would the NFL schedule a Lions v Texans game on Thanksgiving when they could have a Lions v Packers game? I think we could get one or two Sunday games and a Monday game, or a Sunday, Monday and Thursday. We are probably good for 3 games, but I'm with the others, I like the nooners on Sunday.

Because of the way the TV networks operate. There has to be an AFC team play either the NFC Lions or Cowboys each year on Thanksgiving. This year the Lions will play someone from the AFC South on Thanksgiving and it will probably be the Texans.

FOX shows the game when an NFC team is the visitor and CBS shows the game when an AFC team is the visitor.


My wife will be angry that I will be distracted during Thanksgiving dinner. I would really rather not have the Texans play on Thanksgiving.

The Lions are going to play on CBS on Thanksgiving next year. The only games they play on CBS next year are against the Texans and Colts. The Cowboys will get the Fox game.

...and there you have it folks. That's a guideline that I was not aware of gwallaia. If it's a team out of the AFC South, how could it be anyother team but the Texans! Might have to reschedule my meal so the post dinner nap doesn't happen during the game!

This is very true. In some cases it won't be the Texans so much getting a prime time game as it will be their opponent. We'll get a game or two in there just because we happen to be playing someone who they want in that game. Higher profile opponents help a great deal.

As a season ticket holder I don't personally like prime time games because they conclude too late. But it works for me because the Monday Night Football tickets are always in strong demand so I just sell them.

But I'd prefer to see fewer night games and more noon games - easier to attend during the afternoon.

I say 4: Ravens, GB, Detroit on Thanksgiving, and either the Titans or Colts

I wouldn't be surprised if the Bears or Patriots game is primetime too.

^^^This^^^

but only if it's a playoff game.
Let's see how they do when they have to play here.

Personally, I hate Thursday night games. Too short a week to prepare and heal. I can barely stand MNF.
I'm obviously in the minority here but playing all our games on Sundays will be just fine with me.
