The football that takes place on Thursday nights during the NFL regular season is not always the best football. But it is football, and kickoff at 8:15 p.m. ET on Thursday evening means you're almost to the end of the week. The weekend is around the corner—where more football awaits! It is truly a beautiful thing. Even if recent years have given the audience some ... subpar matchups, we'll say.

On May 15, the NFL revealed its full schedule for the 2024 season and with it came the full slate of Thursday Night Football contests. Once again, all TNF games will be broadcast exclusively on Amazon Prime nationally; the local markets will still broadcast the games on the appropriate affiliate channel.

Whether you're trying to find your team's Thursday night assignment or simply want to gauge how your Thursday evenings will look come fall, here's the full 2024 NFL Thursday Night Football schedule. This article does not include the Thanksgiving Day games, which can be found here.

Here is a more in-depth, week-by-week breakdown of the Thursday Night Football Schedule for 2024.

Week 2

Buffalo Bills @ Miami Dolphins

Where: Hard Rock Stadium, Miami, FL
When: Thursday, September 12, 8:15 p.m. ET

An early AFC East matchup will mark TNF's season debut. The Bills and the Dolphins' race for the division title came down to the wire last season, which means this matchup could end up very important down the road.

Week 3

New England Patriots @ New York Jets

Where: Metlife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
When: Thursday, September 19, 8:15 p.m. ET

The primetime world will get its first look at the Patriots without Bill Belichick for the first time since Y2K. It may not be the most competitive contest, however, assuming Aaron Rodgers improves upon last year and makes it through more than one game with his Achilles intact.

Week 4

Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants

Where: Metlife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
When: Thursday, September 26, 8:15 p.m. ET

A classic NFC East rivalry, the Cowboys are hoping to finally make a deep playoff run as they are "all-in" this year. The Giants have a lot going on and very little clarity about what the future holds. This matchup rarely disappoints, even if the games haven't been quite as competitive in recent seasons.

Week 5

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Atlanta Falcons

Where: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, GA
When: Thursday, October 3, 8:15 p.m. ET

A pivotal game in the battle for the NFC South crown. The Bucs won the division and a playoff game last year. The Falcons paid Kirk Cousins a kingly sum to put them in a position to do the same.

Week 6

San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle Seahawks

Where: Lumen Field, Seattle, WA
When: Thursday, October 10, 8:15 p.m. ET

A once-bitter rivalry has cooled off in recent years, but there is still plenty of bad blood and both sides expect to compete in 2024.

Week 7

Denver Broncos @ New Orleans Saints

Where: Caesars Superdome, New Orleans, LA
When: Thursday, October 17, 8:15 p.m. ET

This could very well end up the most average game on the calendar and yet millions of us are going to watch anyway. Does that say more about the anticipated Bo Nix-Derek Carr showdown or us, the audience? You decide.

Week 8

Minnesota Vikings @ Los Angeles Rams

Where: SoFi Stadium, Los Angeles, CA
When: Thursday, October 24, 8:15 p.m. ET

The master will face his former apprentice as Sean McVay hosts his old protégé, Kevin O'Connell, who has done quite well on his own. How good the Vikings are this season will depend on how the quarterback situation shakes out, but the Rams are always good entertainment with McVay and Matthew Stafford cooking things up.

Week 9

Houston Texans @ New York Jets

Where: Metlife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
When: Thursday, October 31, 8:15 p.m. ET

A fun Halloween matchup. C.J. Stroud is one of the game's most exciting young quarterbacks and a duel with Aaron Rodgers should be one to remember. As will Rodgers's Halloween outfit, probably.

Week 10

Cincinnati Bengals @ Baltimore Ravens

Where: M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore, MD
When: Thursday, November 7, 8:15 p.m. ET

Blood, sweat and tears is what we get every time these AFC North foes face off. This game should be no different.

Week 11

Washington Commanders @ Philadelphia Eagles

Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, PA
When: Thursday, November 14, 8:15 p.m. ET

The Commanders, for the first time in a long time, have an exciting young new quarterback in Jayden Daniels. The Eagles have been set with Jalen Hurts for a while but have something to prove after last year's campaign ended in catastrophe. With the postseason rapidly approaching, a lot could be on the line.

Week 12

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cleveland Browns

Where: Cleveland Browns Stadium, Cleveland, OH
When: Thursday, November 21, 8:15 p.m. ET

Steelers-Browns is a historic matchup and one that may underwhelm this year. Pittsburgh threw a bunch of darts at the quarterback room this offseason hoping something will hit, and at this point in the season we should know if something did. The Browns have been good on paper but worse in practice for three years running. But TNF can always surprise!

Week 13

Las Vegas Raiders @ Kansas City Chiefs

Where: GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, MO
When: Friday, November 29, 3 p.m. ET

Thursday Night Football on a Friday afternoon? Must be a Black Friday special. For the second consecutive season Amazon will broadcast a Black Friday game and managed to land the Chiefs this year. Let the food hangover settle with some football.

Week 14

Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions

Where: Ford Field, Detroit, MI
When: Thursday, December 5, 8:15 p.m. ET

The Lions are now the most beloved team in America. The Packers are led by a fun quarterback in Jordan Love. A delectable matchup.

Week 15

Los Angeles Rams @ San Francisco 49ers

Where: Levi's Stadium, Santa Clara, CA
When: Thursday, December 12, 8:15 p.m. ET

Late-season contests between these two teams nearly always come with playoff implications. Even when they don't, the Rams and 49ers fight tooth and claw to ensure they emerge victorious. One of the better rivalries of the last 10 years.

Week 16

Cleveland Browns @ Cincinnati Bengals

Where: Paycor Stadium, Cincinnati, OH
When: Thursday, December 19, 8:15 p.m ET

Another big AFC North battle in the waning days of the season. Hopefully Joe Burrow will be around to see it out, unlike last year.

Week 17

Seattle Seahawks @ Chicago Bears

Where: Soldier Field, Chicago, IL
When: Thursday, December 26, 8:15 p.m. ET

The final game on Amazon's schedule will feature the second-to-last game of Caleb Williams' rookie season. He'll probably have it wrapped up by then, but a solid showing against Mike Macdonald's diabolical defensive schemes would do wonders to boost his stock if needed.
