Collectively, the four outlets will provide fans with 16 games on Thursday night. NFL Network will broadcast 14 of these games with FOX and Amazon Prime signing on starting in Week 5 and running through Week 15 with the exception of the Week 12 Thanksgiving night game between Buffalo and New Orleans.
