What time is the NFL sport tonight? TV schedule, channel for Buccaneers vs. Eagles in Week 6

Spread the love

The time for “Thursday Night Football” will be the same in Week 6 as it is all season.

Tom Brady and the Buccaneers will kick off against the Eagles at 8:20 p.m. ET. There will be plenty of pregame coverage for the event beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET, but kickoff will take place at 8:20.

This will mark the second time that the Buccaneers are playing on Thursday night this year, but it’s the first time that they’ll officially be playing on “Thursday Night Football.” They played Thursday night in the season opener which was technically a “Sunday Night Football” game that took place on Thursday night.

The Buccaneers will look to extend their winning streak to three games. They’ll have to do so against an Eagles team that just completed a comeback win over the 3-1 Panthers and dropped 30 on the Chiefs. Jalen Hurts and Co. could provide a stronger test for Tampa Bay’s beleaguered secondary, so don’t automatically assume that the Bucs will run away with this one.

Below is everything to know about the TV schedule for the NFL Week 6 opener between the Buccaneers and Eagles, plus a look at the rest of the NFL schedule.
