Prime-time football is going to look a bit different heading into 2022.
The NFL Network is no longer one of the networks that will be hosting one of the three weekly prime-time matchups. Instead, Amazon’s streaming service, Prime, enters the mix and will be the broadcast home for “Thursday Night Football.”
In addition, several prominent broadcasters, including Al Michaels, Joe Buck and Troy Aikman have shifted to new booths, and will now be heard on different networks from their previous homes of NBC and Fox. Michaels will now be on Amazon, while Buck and Aikman join ESPN for “Monday Night Football.” Mike Tirico and Cris Collinsworth now comprise NBC’s duo for “Sunday Night Football.”
Below is the complete schedule of prime-time games in 2022, with start times for every Thursday, Sunday and Monday night game.
‘Thursday Night Football’ schedule 2022
- Start time: 8:20 p.m. ET
- Live stream: Amazon Prime
This will be the first year that Amazon Prime is the exclusive home of “Thursday Night Football” after it had been previously been broadcast by Fox.
Al Michaels, who joins the Amazon booth from NBC, will work call play-by-play for the games with Kirk Herbstreit, ESPN’s college football analyst, providing color commentary as the new broadcast duo.
