It seems there were two teams in 2021...

Week 12 - Thanksgiving - Raiders at Dallas and Bills at Saints

Week 13 - Dallas at Saints 

 

And in 2019

Week 13 - Thanksgiving - Bears at Lions and Bills at Dallas

Week 14 - Dallas at Bears

 

That's as far as I'm digging into this tonight. 

 

EDIT - notice you said Thursday NIGHT games, not all Thursday games.  I'll dig deeper later this week. 

 

Teams that played TNF games two weeks in a row

2015 - Packers (vs Bears, at Lions)

2017 - Redskins (vs Giants, at Cowboys)

2018 - Saints (vs Falcons, at Cowboys)

2021 - Saints (vs Bills, vs Cowboys)

 

Teams that played Thanksgiving, then TNF the following week

2007 - Packers (at Lions, vs Cowboys)

2014 - Cowboys (vs Eagles, at Bears)

         - Bears (at Lions, vs Cowboys)

2015 - Lions (vs Eagles, vs Packers)

2016 - Cowboys (vs Redskins, at Vikings)

         - Vikings (at Lions, vs Cowboys)

2017 - Cowboys (vs Chargers, vs Redskins)

2018 - Cowboys (vs Redskins, vs Saints)

2019 - Bears (at Lions, vs Cowboys)

         - Cowboys (vs Bills, at Bears)

2021 - Cowboys (vs Raiders, at Saints)

I would rather get that west coast trip done week 1. Plus week 1 is always unpredictable. I would like to face a top team week 1.

Agree 100%.  Better to get that long west coast trip out of the way, and more importantly, IMO, week one is completely unpredictable.  Yes LA will be pumped up for this game, but so will we. And I think that the unpredictability of the game will benefit the defenses more than the offenses, and I would LOVE to see Von collect two or three sacks right out of the gate, on his way to a 16 sack season. When I dream I dream big...

For those discussing how the 17th game SHOULD be selected, given the lack of preexisting protocol: first, help me understand how the following is NOT a solid criterium?

 

One interconference game based on the prior year's standings on a rotating four-year cycle (one game). These games match a first-place team from one division against a first-place team in an opposite conference division that the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place and fourth-place teams in each division are matched in the same way each year. The home conference for this game will rotate each season.

 

This seems to me like the next logical extension of the established scheduling hierarchy/protocol, seeking equity AND more diverse interconference matchups. What I'm seeing some posters suggest is so finnicky and unpredictable and difficult to justify if equity is at all important (mostly specific player-based matchups, including grudge matches with recently moved players facing last year's teams and elite QBs squaring off even though they don't actually see the field at the same time).

 

A team's scheduled opponents should NOT be emotionally chosen. When the logically selected games are played and at what times CAN be divvied up to maximize fan interest.

This one seems probable given his accuracy before the release last year....

 

 

Last year on May 12th.  The morning before the schedule was released later that day....

This would also go along with this

 

I've been skeptical about this account all day but with it having a second source. Seems legit

If all of these rumors about primetime games come true then it seems like the Bills will play 15 primetime games, one game at 1:00, and one at 4:25. Does that sound about right.

And two on thanksgiving, one on Christmas Eve and then wake up and play again on Christmas Day

This morning my Google feed out here in Los Angeles from a Rams website says they’ve announced the Bills will indeed play them in the Opener. 

 

If it's the same thing I saw, they are basing it off the rumors from a Bills fan site.

Keep seeing this on Twitter:

However, I can't imagine the NFL making the Packers play three road games in a row (either weeks 7-9 or weeks 12-14), so I'm not buying it. (The game in London is a Packers home game, so all the missing dates would have to be road games.)

I expected an early SNF game vs GB, but if it’s week 3 and the week 1 rumor of at LAR is correct, they would be 3 prime time games in a row for the Bills to open the season which would be a bit extreme
