Sports news

The time for Thursday Night Football will be the same during week 6 as it will throughout the season.

Tom Brady and the Buccaneers will kick off against the Eagles at 8:20 p.m. ET. There will be plenty of pre-game coverage for the event starting at 7:30 p.m. ET, but the kickoff will be at 8:20 p.m. ET.

This will be the second time the Buccaneers play Thursday night this year, but it is the first time they will officially play on “Thursday Night Football”. They played Thursday night in the season opener which was technically a “Sunday Night Football” game that took place on Thursday night.

The Buccaneers will look to extend their winning streak to three games. They’ll have to do it against an Eagles team that just completed a comeback victory over the Panthers 3-1 and lost 30 to the Chiefs. Jalen Hurts and Co. could provide a stronger test for the besieged Tampa Bay secondary, so don’t automatically assume the Bucs will run away with this one.

Below, you’ll find everything you need to know about the NFL Week 6 opening TV show between the Buccaneers and Eagles, along with an overview of the rest of the NFL schedule.
