Amazon's "Thursday Night Football" game will kick off with a bang. The NFL has given its new streaming partner one of the week's best matchups, which will feature a battle between two of the NFL's best young quarterbacks. After thrashing the Cardinals on the road in Week 1, Patrick Mahomes will lead the Chiefs into battle. He racked up 360 yards and five touchdowns in his season debut, propelling him to MVP co-favourite status alongside Josh Allen. The Chiefs will rely on Travis Kelce, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling to carry their passing offence in the absence of Tyreek Hill.

Thursday Night Football schedule week 2

The Chargers vs Chiefs game will kick off Week 2 of the 2022 NFL season, and it is expected to be the week's best matchup. Both division rivals are expected to be Super Bowl contenders, and both won their first games against teams that had made the playoffs the previous season. They will now compete for early AFC West supremacy in what could be a high-scoring match.

In Week 2, there will be three additional prime-time games. First, the Bears and Packers will face off on "Sunday Night Football" as part of the NFL's longest-running rivalry. Chicago currently has a better record than Green Bay, so that the game will be crucial for Aaron Rodgers and company.

Thursday Night Football schedule Week 3

The Steelers' game against the Browns will be the first NFL Week 3 action of the 2022 season. The game is expected to be a grind-it-out battle between two division rivals with solid defences and quarterback questions. After Thursday night, there will be two more prime-time games in Week 3. The game between the 49ers and Broncos on "Sunday Night Football" has the potential to be exciting. Because Trey Lance suffered a broken ankle, Jimmy Garoppolo will return to the starting lineup and try to right the ship. On the other hand, Denver is off to an uninspiring 1-1 start. First-year head coach Nathaniel Hackett has been chastised for his in-game management abilities, and he will need to deliver a strong performance in Week 3 to allay fears.
