NFL Schedule 2023: Primetime Games, Thanksgiving & Christmas Tripleheaders, Prime Video Black Friday Freebie & More

With the NBA and NHL playoffs in full swing, the NFL is grabbing some headlines today as the league reveals its 2023 schedule. It teased a few games ahead earlier in the day, and now we have the full roster of games. Have a look at the primetime games and the Thanksgiving and Christmas Day tripleheaders below — with all times Pacific for brevity.

The annual Kickoff Game features the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs hosting the rising Detroit Lions at Arrowhead Stadium at 5:20 p.m. Thursday, September 7, on NBC. The season’s first Monday Night Football matchup on ESPN will be an AFC East tilt with the Buffalo Bills visiting the New York Jets at 5:15 p.m. September 11 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. It will mark future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ first game with the Gotham club after 18 seasons with the Green Bay Packers.
