NFL Network Thursday Night Football 2013 schedule: NFL Network’s coverage of Thursday Night Football begins Sept. 12 with the N.Y. Jets at New England. Full schedule below.
NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football kicks off its season on Sept. 12 at 8:25pm ET with a huge Week 2 AFC East rivalry game between the New York Jets and the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. The bad blood between Jets head coach Rex Ryan and Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is well documented, but at least the two teams found some common ground this offseason: They both cut quarterback Tim Tebow.
Week 3 on Thursday Night Football Sept. 19 has Kansas City at Philadelphia. Andy Reid was head coach of the Eagles from 1999-2012, taking the team to the playoffs nine times in 14 seasons. But Reid will be on the other sideline as the Chiefs visit the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. Taking over Reid’s job in Philly is former Oregon head coach Chip Kelly.
On Sept. 26, the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers visit the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis for a Week 4 matchup against the Rams. The two meetings between the NFC West foes went down to the wire last season, with their Week 10 game ending in a 24-24 tie and their Week 13 game won by the Rams 16-13 in overtime.
