What is the Thursday Night Football channel, and when does the game start tonight? Here’s how to watch the Seahawks and Cowboys matchup tonight, including the start time and channel.

What Channel Airs Thursday Night Football Tonight?

While there were three Thursday games due to the Thanksgiving festivities, Prime Video did not broadcast any Thursday Night Football with NBC taking over the duties. Instead, they aired the first-ever Black Friday game. With the schedule back to normal in Week 13, the Seahawks and Cowboys will kick off on Amazon’s streaming service at 8:15 p.m. ET tonight.

Seattle Seahawks (6-5) at Dallas Cowboys (8-3)

  • Start time: 8:15 p.m. ET
  • Channel: Prime Video

What seemed like the start to another good season with QB Geno Smith under center has hit a rough patch. The Seahawks started 2023 with an impressive 5-2 record, but they are now barely holding onto the NFC’s sixth seed, going 1-3 the last four weeks.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys are enjoying an impressive 5-1 stretch with many points being scored. In that span, Dallas has scored 33 or more in four games while limiting their opponents to 20 or less. Winning on Thursday Night Football tonight pushes their Wild Card lead to three games, keeping them within reach of the Philadelphia Eagles for first place in the NFC East.

The Seahawks desperately need a turnaround on offense. Since Week 9, Seattle has gone three-and-out on 33.3% of their drives — the second-worst in the NFL. Part of that is due to the disappearance of the rushing attack and RB Kenneth Walker III’s injury. Seattle already has a bottom-10 rushing offense, but they’ve averaged a measly 76 yards per game in the last four weeks.

Dallas’ offense and defense are humming. It will be quite the test if Seattle wants to keep a firm footing in the NFC Wild Card race on Thursday Night Football tonight. The Cowboys’ defense has allowed a third-down conversion rate of just 34.3% this season — the second-best in the NFL. Seahawks HC Pete Carroll will need quite the game plan to take down a surging Cowboys crew.

Seattle and Dallas start the Week 13 action with a crucial game that will affect playoff seeding down the stretch. This is also the last week with a large bye group, as the Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears, Las Vegas Raiders, Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants, and Baltimore Ravens are all taking the week off.
