Who plays on Thursday Night Football tonight? Matchup: New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles : Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania After a week away from its normal time slot due to rescheduling, Thursday Night Football returns to be simulcast on Fox and the NFL Network after NFL Network had exclusive TV rights to the games prior to Week 5. Despite bad records for both teams, Fox will be excited about a matchup of two marquee markets.
Hurts was on the field for 10 percent of the Eagles’ offensive snaps last week, his most all season, and now that Sanders and Ertz are both added to the growing list of banged up players for Philly, it’s likely that Hurts will see even more action against the Giants.
