What channel is Browns vs. Broncos on today? Schedule, time for NFL ‘Thursday Night Football’ in Week 7

“Thursday Night Football” has a permanent home for the rest of the 2021 NFL season. Early in the campaign, the channel airing the games seemingly changed constantly, but each of the last three weeks, it has remained consistent.

The first Thursday night game of the year was shown on NBC, as it was technically as “Sunday Night Football” game. In Weeks 2-4, NFL Network had the exclusive broadcast rights for “Thursday Night Football,” so the games viewed there.

Now, things are a bit more open. NFL Network will still be broadcasting the games, but Fox will simulcast the game with them. That will give cable subscribers a couple of easy ways to watch the game while Amazon Prime will be one of the many ways viewers can stream the game.

Week 7’s matchup figures to be an intriguing one between the Browns and the Broncos. Both teams started the season strong but have since slipped up a bit. The Broncos are 3-3 after losing three straight games, as Teddy Bridgewater’s effectiveness has seemed to wane every week.

Meanwhile, the Browns had 20 players on their injury report to begin the week and will be without Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt in this contest, and the team will start Case Keenum over Baker Mayfield, who is battling a shoulder injury.

Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham Jr. and plenty of other defensive players and offensive linemen could be out of action as well. So, while the Browns would normally have the advantage here, this may be a tough spot for them.

NFL Week 7 schedule

The Browns and Broncos will kick off another week of NFL action, but this is the lightest game-slate to date. There will be only 13 games in Week 7, as six teams will be on bye. The good news is that there are plenty of quality games on the schedule. “Sunday Night Football” will feature an interesting clash between the Colts and 49ers while the Saints and Seahawks will play on “Monday Night Football” without Drew Brees and Russell Wilson respectively.

Additionally, the Cardinals will look to improve to 7-0 in a matchup against the Texans. That will be a revenge game for DeAndre Hopkins, who has yet to play the Texans since he was traded to the Cardinals. The Lions-Rams game will be interesting as well. Matthew Stafford and Jared Goff traded places during the offseason, so they’ll each hope to beat their former team.

Below is the full schedule for Week 7 of the 2021 NFL season.
