Thursday Night Football returns for week 3 of the regular NFL season as the Cleveland Browns host the Pittsburgh Steelers at FirstEnergy Stadium.
Amazon’s monster $1.2 billion-per-year deal started with an entertaining clash between the Chargers and the Chiefs last week, and according to an internal memo from Prime Video vice president and global head of sports Jay Marine, it was a huge success for the streaming platform.
Amazon will be hoping for more of the same this week, albeit featuring a Steelers side struggling offensively with coach Mike Tomlin insisting he will remain patient so early in the season after another average offensive performance in week 2. Home advantage for the Browns could prove the difference in what is expected to be a close match-up.
