The start time for Thursday night’s game between the Browns and Bengals to kick off Week 2 is the same kickoff time set for all Thursday night games this year.

With the default start time in place, Thursday night’s game in Cleveland will kick off under the lights at FirstEnergy Stadium at 8:20 p.m. ET and broadcast nationally on NFL Network.

 And because the Browns and Bengals lost their season-openers, it’s pretty close to a must-win game for both teams.

The start time and the TV channel, though, are among the few aspects of Thursday night’s broadcast that will be familiar to viewers. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the NFL to implement seemingly endless health and safety protocols that will alter the viewing experience. In particular, the lack of fans in the stands at FirstEnergy Stadium on Thursday night will continue to be strange for the players.

Below is everything to know about the TV schedule for Thursday night’s game in Cleveland, plus a look at the rest of Week 1.

What time is the NFL game tonight?
  • Game: Bengals at Browns
  • Date: Thursday, Sept. 17
  • Kickoff time: 8:20 p.m. ET

All Thursday night games throughout the 2020 NFL season will start at 8:20 p.m. ET, though the TV viewing options (more on those below) will change in a few weeks.

This is the first of two primetime games on the Browns’ schedule, as Cleveland also will host Baltimore on a Monday night in Week 14.

Likewise, the Bengals also have a pair of primetime games on their schedule. In addition to Thursday night’s game in Cleveland, Cincinnati will host Pittsburgh on a Monday night in Week 15.

What channel is Browns vs. Bengals on today?

For now, NFL Network is the exclusive TV home of “Thursday Night Football” and the only channel that will show Browns vs. Bengals. That will be the case for all Thursday night games through Week 4.

Beginning in Week 5, all “Thursday Night Football” games will broadcast live on cable network Fox in addition to NFL Network. That simulcast setup will be in place through Week 16.

NFL Network is available via most cable providers in the United States. It also is available via satellite provider DirecTV (channels 212 and 1212) and IPTV providers Verizon FiOS (channels 88 and 588) and Google Fiber (channel 2019).

NFL live stream for Browns vs. Bengals

Because Thursday night’s game in Cleveland will be shown exclusively by NFL Network, the live stream options are limited. More will become available for “Thursday Night Football” in Week 5, when the games will start being simulcast on Fox.

Below are all of the live streaming options for “Thursday Night Football” in 2020.

NFL Week 2 schedule

Browns vs. Bengals on Thursday night kicks off a complete week of 16 NFL games, with Saints vs. Raiders on Monday night bookending Week 2.

The game of the week is the Sunday night matchup between the Patriots and the Seahawks in Seattle, with other notable matchups being Falcons vs. Cowboys, Rams vs. Eagles and Ravens vs. Texans, to name a few.

Below is the complete schedule for Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season.
