Whether or not you are in favorite of the Thursday night NFL action, it does break up the week a little bit. It also gives football fans and bettors something to look forward to in anticipation of the weekend. Attempting to capitalize on growing Thursday night TV ratings, the NFL now has at least one game on TV every Thursday night during the season, except for Week 17. That includes the “Season Kickoff” game on September 10 and, of course, the Thanksgiving holiday.
In the past, these matchups haven’t always been exciting, as the league has thrown some of the league’s bottom feeders into the Thursday night fire as sacrificial lambs. In looking at this season’s Thursday Night Football lineup, that appears to be a thing of the past. There are some excellent, marquee matchups for the Thursday night crowd to enjoy this season.
These standalone primetime games are big draws for the NFL and big draws for the sportsbooks as well. Players are inclined to have action with just one game that they know they are going to watch anyways. In looking at the Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football schedules, it’s safe to say that the 2015 Thursday Night Football schedule rivals the traditional powerhouse matchups that NBC and ESPN are going to enjoy this season.
Since 2006, the NFL has had these Thursday Night Football games. It may have taken them all that time to get the matchups right, but Thursday nights are going to be a lot more exciting this season than in years past. If you want to get in on the action, and you know you do, we recommend BetDSI. The promo code BANG200 will open up a 200 percent sign-up bonus for you. How can you beat that?
For Thursday nights, the opening kickoff game will be on NBC in Week 1. From Week 2 through Week 8, CBS and NFL Network will simultaneously air the Thursday night matchups. From Week 9 to Week 16, games will exclusively be on NFL Network. All games kick off at 8:25 p.m. ET unless otherwise noted. For current Thursday night football odds checkout our Live Lines
Wow! The NFL seems to have realized just how much they can capitalize on these Thursday night matchups because the first 12 games are all division rivalries. These aren’t all division rivalries like the Tennessee Titans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars, although, one of the scheduled games will be a matchup of Marcus Mariota against Blake Bortles. There are some heavy hitters here.
The Denver Broncos will have just one week to work out the kinks with new head coach Gary Kubiak before taking on a stout Kansas City Chiefs defense. The Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers play their two meetings this season in primetime, with the first one in Week 4 on Thursday night and the second one during Week 17 on Sunday Night Football. An Andrew Luck vs. JJ Watt matchup awaits in Week 5 in a game that will generate a lot of buzz if the Houston Texans can get off to a good start.
You might feel the bumps and bruises of the October 22 game between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers from your couch or barstool as both teams will amp up the hitting for that annual bloodbath. Could the upstart Miami Dolphins make a big statement at Gillette Stadium in Week 8 against the New England Patriots? The Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions open up the final month of the season with some fireworks in Week 13. Interesting matchups with playoff implications round out the remaining weeks of the season.
Whether the game you’re most interested in is on Thursday night, Sunday afternoon, Sunday night, or Monday night, BangTheBook.com should be your home for NFL coverage all season long.
