As the end of the regular NFL season for 2022 draws near, fans may be wondering where they can catch the Week 17 Thursday night football game featuring the 11-4 Dallas Cowboys vs. the 7-8 Tennesee Titans.
While Sunday Night Football lives on NBC and Monday Night Football airs on ESPN, figuring out how to watch Thursday Night Football is a little more difficult since it’s moved around a bit in recent years.
After years of airing on different networks, Thursday Night Football has finally found a permanent home at Amazon’s Prime Video, which recently scored an exclusive broadcasting deal with the NFL.

So if you’re wondering how to watch the Dallas Cowboys vs. Tennessee Titans game this Thursday, December 29 then you’ll need to sign up for Prime Video ASAP.
Fortunately, because Prime Video has a generous 30-day free trial, you can watch Thursday Night Football online for free in 2022, at least, temporarily.

Why Can’t I Watch Thursday Night Football on TV?
