Are NFL Thanksgiving 2022 games on Amazon Prime? Here’s where you can watch all the football action today.

It’s Thanksgiving Day, which means there’s a feast of NFL games on throughout the day.

Thanksgiving and the NFL have been connected since the 1920s, with the Detroit Lions being the first team in the league to make it a tradition.

Today is all about football, but are the NFL Thanksgiving 2022 games on Amazon Prime? Let’s take a look.

Which teams are playing on Thanksgiving?

Only two Thanksgivings have failed to feature the Lions and the Cowboys, and this year both team are in action. The Lions play the Buffalo Bills in the first game of the day, followed by the Cowboys vs the Giants.

The Vikings and the Patriots will round out the day’s action.

Are NFL Thanksgiving 2022 games on Amazon Prime?

This year, the Thanksgiving slates of coincides with Thursday Night Football, which has a new home on Amazon Prime.

The company reportedly paid the NFL $13 billion over the next eleven seasons to exclusively televise 15 regular season Thursday night games, with Al Michaels and longtime college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit providing the commentary.

However, there are no NFL Thanksgiving games on Amazon Prime in 2022. Simply put, their package did include Thanksgiving games (at least not for this year anyway).

The Bills vs. Lions airs at 12:30 a.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT on CBS. That’s followed by the Giants vs. Cowboys game on Fox at 4:30 p.m. ET/1:30 p.m. PT.

Finally, the Patriots vs. Vikings game will air at 8:20 p.m. ET/5:20 p.m. PT on NBC.

Black Friday Game planned for 2023

While there is no NFL Thanksgiving game on Amazon Prime this year, that’s set to change next year.

The first-ever Black Friday game will stream on Prime Video in 2023. The game will reportedly be played during the afternoon, as the league can’t televise prime time games on Friday nights.

The participating teams will be announced when the 2023 schedule is released.
