124. 8:15 p.m. EST. Thursday, October 12th. 4-1. Chiefs -10.5. 1-4. 45. Prime Video. Thursday night football Week 6

Sometimes, it's good to enjoy some stress-free football. The Philadelphia Eagles' next test is one that sends them to a familiar venue, one they visit annually to face the hated New York Giants. This time their opponent is the Big Blue's little brother, the crosstown Jets. The Birds have never lost to the latter in a game that counts toward the win-loss total.

If you're looking for something to keep you busy in the meantime, Amazon Prime has something to whet the whistle. Two AFC West foes write another chapter in their storied rivalry to get the action flowing in Week 6 on Thursday.

The Kansas City Chiefs host the Denver Broncos on Amazon Prime for Thursday Night Football.

If you think the angst in the NFC East is something, you're certain to enjoy any matchup that features two teams from the American Football Conference's western division. The Las Vegas Raiders, Los Angeles Chargers, Denver Broncos, and Kansas City Chiefs simply don't like one another. The Broncos and Chiefs do battle on Thursday Night Football.

This one's interesting to Birds fans because Philly plays K.C. in Week 11. There's also the Russell Wilson factor. There used to be a love affair between some Eagles enthusiasts and him. Thank heaven the Birds didn't go down that road.

This is the 127th meeting between these two. Kansas City is a heavy favorite in the game and leads the all-time series by a 71-55 tally. We expect the Chiefs to win this one too. Denver simply isn't a good football team.
