The 2022 NFL football season is officially underway, which means it’s time to start figuring out where and how to watch your favorite team(s) play, including how to watch the Chargers and the Chiefs for free during the second week of the season.
While it’s well known that Sunday Night Football lives on NBC and Monday Night Football airs on ESPN, figuring out how to watch Thursday Night Football can often be a bit more difficult since it’s moved around quite a bit in recent years.
After years of airing on different networks, Thursday Night Football has finally found a permanent home at Amazon’s Prime Video, which recently scored an exclusive broadcasting deal with the NFL.
There will be a total of 15 Thursday night football games at 8:15 p.m. ET on Prime Video throughout the season. The only exceptions to this are the Week 1 kickoff game on NBC and Week 12’s three Thanksgiving day games, which will air on CBS, Fo, and NBC this year.
