Aaron Rodgers…what have you done?
This year, the NFL writ-large is making a strong case for the dismissal of the old guard. Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, the league’s elder statesmen, are both having noticeably bad seasons, (although Tom Brady seems to have something to prove, having gone undefeated since his divorce was finalized two weeks ago).
Coming up tonight exclusively on Prime Video, Aaron Rodgers has yet another chance to set up to the plate (yes, we are mixing sports metaphors) and prove why the league still needs him around, going up against the Tennessee Titans (6-3) with his beleaguered Packers (4-6).
All that said, there are still a few reasons for Packers supporters (dubbed Packers Backers, by us, the New York Post) to be hopeful.
Below, we’ve outlined how to watch, when to tune in, and what you can expect from tonight’s Thursday Night Football matchup.
Folks, you know the drill – Thursday Night Football is streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. Every week this season, the biggest weeknight event the NFL has to offer is free with a Prime subscription (or a 30-day free trial). Nab one now, and pick up TNR, in addition to Amazon’s huge slate of movies and Original Series, including “The Peripheral,” “Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” and “The Boys.”
When does the game start?
Kickoff for tonight’s game is 8:15 EST, and pregame coverage begins at 7. It’s fun to sit in the stands, but we can guarantee you’ll have a more comfortable time tuning in from your couch than from Lambeau Field in Green Bay, where temperatures are expected to be below freezing this Thursday.
What can you expect from tonight’s game?
As we mentioned above, temps are expected to be below freezing (a balmy 29 degrees) at Lambeau Field on Thursday. That’s standard tailgaiting weather in Green Bay, but the Nashville-based Titans aren’t quite as adept at playing in parka-and-long-john conditions.
The Packers other edge is the high they might still be riding from a surprise win over the Cowboys on Sunday. Can the Pack jumpstart a mediocre season, or will the Titans help to put their playoff chances in the cold, hard Green Bay ground?
There’s only one way to find out: watch tonight’s game on Amazon Prime Video.
