Thursday night's game in Atlanta will air nationally on NBC and NFL Network. It's the fourth of five Thursday night games that were scheduled to be televised on NBC throughout the season (not including the NFL season-opener) as part of the NFL's "Thursday Night Football" expansion package for 2016 and '17. NBC also televised the Thanksgiving night game between the Giants and Redskins on Thursday, Nov. 23. CBS carried five Thursday night games earlier this year. In addition to CBS and NBC, NFL Network broadcasts every Thursday night game of the season.

Mike Tirico, Cris Collinsworth and Heather Cox (field reporter) will call the Saints-Falcons game for NBC on Thursday night in Atlanta. At 6:00 p.m. ET on NFL Network, "TNF GameDay" previews the Saints-Falcons matchup from outside Mercedes-Benz Stadium, with host Chris Rose and analysts Marshall Faulk, Michael Irvin and Steve Smith Sr. At 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC, NFL Network and Amazon Prime Video, "Football Night in Atlanta" airs from inside Mercedes-Benz with host Liam McHugh and analysts Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison providing the final say leading up to kickoff between the Saints and Falcons.

Because it won an offseason bidding war, Amazon is providing live streaming services for 10 "Thursday Night Football" games in 2017. Saints vs. Falcons is the ninth of such games, which coincide with the CBS and NBC "Thursday Night Football" broadcast schedules. Amazon also provided a live stream for the Week 3 Jaguars-Ravens game in London. Twitter held the rights to live stream "Thursday Night Football" games in 2016.
