What channel is Buccaneers vs. Eagles on today? Schedule, time for NFL ‘Thursday Night Football’ in Week 6

The channel for “Thursday Night Football” will remain consistent for the rest of the 2021 NFL season. Viewers will have plenty of ways that they can watch games in Week 6 and beyond, as multiple channels will broadcast Thursday night games.

From Weeks 2-4, NFL Network exclusively showed “Thursday Night Football.” In Week 1, NBC showed a game on Thursday that was technically a “Sunday Night Football” game.

Now, both Fox and NFL Network will broadcast the Buccaneers vs. Eagles game. They will also team up to provide viewers with pre- and post-game coverage of the event. They will surely feature Tom Brady and Jalen Hurts heavily in their coverage, as the NFL’s oldest current quarterback takes on a player making only his 10th career start.
