  • Cowboys, 49ers, Jets to have 6 prime-time games each this season

    The 2024 NFL schedule was released on Wednesday night, and get ready for a lot of Dak Prescott, Aaron Rodgers and Brock Purdy in prime time this fall.

    The Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets lead the way with six prime-time games each across ESPN, Amazon Prime Video and NBC this season.

    The Cowboys will be on “Sunday Night Football” three times throughout the season. They’ll host the New York Giants in their annual Thanksgiving game, too. The 49ers, who will host the Cowboys on “Sunday Night Football” in Week 8, will host the Jets to open the season on “Monday Night Football” in Week 1. They’ll also close out “Monday Night Football” in Week 17. The Jets are split evenly among the three networks in prime-time slots.

    There are nine teams in the league with five prime-time games each this season. Four teams — the Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans, New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals — will appear in just a single prime time game. The Cardinals’ game is an ESPN+ exclusive.

    The Carolina Panthers are the only team in the league that didn’t get a prime-time game.

  • Panthers are odd man out

    The Carolina Panthers are the only NFL team without a prime-time game this season — maybe they can paint a better picture next year.

  • Chargers drop another creative schedule release video, with a dig at Harrison Butker’s commencement address

    No one out-tries the Los Angeles Chargers on NFL schedule release day, and the team lived up to its reputation on Wednesday.

    After two years of the most disrespectful anime trailers you will ever see, the Chargers went in a different direction for 2024. They used a Sims-style animation to hurl jokes and references at their future opponents, and it is a delightful few minutes.

  • How did the NFL do with its matchups for Amazon, ESPN+, Netflix and Peacock?

    The NFL has many mouths to feed when it comes to their broadcasting partners and the regular season schedule. And it’s not just the traditional networks anymore.

    Netflix has entered the fray with a pair of Christmas games. The NFL announced that partnership, which will include Christmas games the next three years on Netflix, on Wednesday. Peacock, NBC’s streaming service, had a regular season game and a playoff game last season. The playoff game between the Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs set a record as the largest streamed event in U.S. history. ESPN+ also got a game last season, when the Atlanta Falcons played the Jacksonville Jaguars in London during Week 4, and was given another exclusive game this season.

    The NFL has many broadcast partners including its own NFL Network to satisfy with quality matchups, and a lot of subscriptions for fans if they want all the games. Here’s how the NFL handled handing out matchups to the streaming services this season.

  • Chicago Bears go back to school for 2024 schedule release

  • Cowboys to host Giants on Thanksgiving, holiday games feature first-ever contests on Netflix

    Get out your calendars, NFL fans. It’s time to make some holiday plans.

    It doesn’t matter that it’s only May. The NFL released the full schedule of holiday games for the 2024 season on Wednesday night.

    Old traditions, like the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions playing on Thanksgiving, continue to endure, but the offerings have expanded in recent years to include games on Black Friday and Christmas Day.

    Check out all the holiday games here.
