Because of Justin Herbert and Patrick Mahomes’ high-octane offenses, the Chiefs-Chargers rivalry is one of the most exciting in football. Tonight will see them meet for the first time in their regular season. However, flipping stations won’t help you find it.
The Amazon Prime Video streaming service will be the only way to stream tonight’s Chiefs-Chargers match, outside of local networks. Al Michaels, the legendary Al Michaels, and Kirk Herbstreit from ESPN will both be present.
Amazon ensured that they had a lot of top names in their studio to debut Thursday Night Football on Prime Video. Charissa Thompson will also be analyzing the pregame with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez and cornerback Richard Sherman.

Amazon has spent a lot of money trying to compete against the likes FOX, CBS, NBC and FOX for a piece of the NFL ratings pie. They will be able to show off their work in one of the most important games of the year.
In years past Thursday Night Football was seen as a throwaway broadcast that featured low-tier, low stakes matchups as well as occasional gimmicks like their “Color Rush” promotion.
After Amazon bought Thursday Night Football, the retailer giant invested heavily in making their broadcasts better, bigger and more like cable counterparts.
In just a few hours, we’ll be able to see how far Amazon has advanced.
At 7 p.m., coverage of Chiefs-Chargers will begin. ET on Prime Video. Kickoff is at 8:15 p.m. ET.
