Thursday Night Football is the newest prime time game from the NFL, and it gives fans another night to live stream football online. This is the first game of each NFL week, and it typically provides rookies and rising stars their first chance to play under the lights.

Thursday Night Football is a brand name, so be prepared for Thursday Night Football games on Friday and Saturday afternoons too.

Here's how to watch Thursday Night Football online, with this week’s game of New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles live stream Thursday October 22 at 8 p.m. on Fox, NFL Network and Amazon Prime.

Travel has been locked down for so long that fans and families are ready to pick up and go the first chance they get. If that means traveling international, it could make it hard to keep up with all your favorite games that you could have watched at home. Geographic limitations don’t have to mean that your streaming subscriptions look like they’ve lost all their value.

Thursday Night Football — Week 7 New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles

The New York Giants (1-5) got their first win of the season last week, but the team didn’t look great doing it. After jumping out to an early lead, the Giants nearly gave the game away and they only held on thanks to a defensive touchdown. Quarterback Daniel Jones has taken a step back this season, with more interceptions and sacks per game and a drop in pass accuracy. The fortunate thing for the Giants (and Eagles) is that their division is awful, so even at 1-5 they are only one game out of first place. 

So we’re saying there’s a chance!

The Philadelphia Eagles (1-4-1) are coming off back to back losses, but there were positives for them to take from last week. The Eagles almost came back against a strong Ravens team after falling well behind, scoring three touchdowns in the fourth quarter. The Eagles defense continues to be their biggest problem, allowing almost 30 points per game. They are set to play the Giants two times in their next three games, so if the Eagles can tighten up their defense, they could get a leg up in the NFC East heading into the second half of the season.
