Who is playing ‘Thursday Night Football’ tonight? Time, TV channel, NFL week 2 schedule

The “Thursday Night Football” matchups are not usually the star games on the calendars. That said, schedule makers always make a certain number of divisional games available to the TNF stream, and they usually pounce on them.

This week, viewers will be able to enjoy a clash of the two best teams in the NFC East last year. That may not say much, considering that none of the teams in the division had a winning record, but the stakes will be high in this one.

Washington, last year’s NFC East winner with a 7-9 record, is looking to avoid a 0-2 start. They will play at home again but will have to dispatch an opponent who has given them problems in recent years. They haven’t lost five straight games to the Giants, but Ron Rivera and company will look to reverse that trend Thursday.

It will not be easy. Washington is adding a new quarterback with Ryan Fitzpatrick out, so there will be some intrigue as Taylor Heinicke looks to get a critical victory for himself and his team.

Below is everything you need to know about that showdown, plus everything you need to know to watch the first game of Week 2 on Thursday night.

New York and Washington played twice last season and the Giants won both games. They won the first contest 20-19 with Kyle Allen starting for Washington and 23-20 three weeks later with Alex Smith starting. Now, the Giants will be able to see Taylor Heinicke in action for the first time.

Heinicke is, incredibly, the sixth different QB to start for Washington in his last six games against the Giants. He will be looking to win for the first time during his starting career. He is 0-2 in his career, including a loss in last year’s wild card game against the Buccaneers.
