Who is playing ‘Thursday Night Football’ tonight? Time, TV channel, NFL week 7 schedule

Just a few weeks ago, Week 7’s “Thursday Night Football” matchup looked like a matchup between two potential playoff teams. Now, it seems like a battle of two teams fighting for their respective lives in the playoffs.

The two AFC teams meeting on Thursday are dealing with serious injury problems. One of the teams had 20 players on its initial injury report for the week and both teams are dealing with quarterback injuries.

As such, Thursday night’s competition may not be about which side is better overall. It will be about which side is healthier. Right now, that sounds like the Broncos, but maybe the Browns will get some good news on the injury front as the kickoff approaches.

Below is everything you need to know about Thursday night’s showdown, plus everything you need to know to watch the first game of Week 7 of the 2021 NFL season.

Who is playing ‘Thursday Night Football’ tonight?

  • Match: Broncos at Browns
  • Location: FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio

The Broncos will travel to Cleveland to face the Browns and open Week 7 of the 2021 NFL season. Denver is coming off three straight losses after winning its first three games of the season, so they hope to bounce back in a short week.

It may not be easy. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is dealing with a foot injury, so the Broncos will have to make a decision about his condition. They can either go ahead with him or trust that Drew Lock will start in his place against Cleveland.

While that decision will prove critical for the Broncos, the Browns have many more tough decisions facing them. They had 20 players included on their initial injury report this week and they won’t have their two best running backs, Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, on this one.

They will also be without starting quarterback Baker Mayfield. He was trying to play through a shoulder labrum that is “completely ripped,” but the Browns won’t let him do that in a short week. Instead, they will turn to Case Keenum, who will make his first start since the 2019 season in Washington.

Between Keenum’s start and the unstable situation for Denver’s quarterback, this game could turn unpredictable.
