3-3. 52. Amazon Prime. Thursday, October 19th. 8:15 p.m. EST. 4-2. Thursday night football Week 7. 15. Saints -2

Okay, so the 'new norm' didn't last as long as we had hoped... Or, maybe the norm just became nine wins and sneaking into the playoffs after a late charge to end the regular season. Who knows? All we know was the adrenaline rush that came from winning the first Vince Lombardi Trophy in franchise history wore off quickly, and the Doug Pederson era as Philadelphia Eagles head coach ended a lot faster than any of us bargained for.

What can we say? Things happen. That doesn't make us love good ol' Doug any less. He helped deliver some of our favorite memories as fans, and he's the only man walking that can say he led the Birds to Super Bowl glory.

If we're being honest, every so often, we always find ourselves peaking over to see what he and his new team are doing. We'll do so again in Week 7 on Thursday Night Football.

Who is playing Thursday Night Football in Week 6?

If you haven't figured it, out the Jacksonville Jaguars are playing on Thursday Night Football. They visit the Caesars Superdome to tackle the New Orleans Saints. How's this for intrigue? At the time of this story's release, there's a rumor stirring that Trevor Lawrence might not play.

Who won the last matchup between them?

The Jags have only been around since 1995. The Saints' first season was in 1967, so these two teams haven't played often, In fact, this is only the eighth meeting. New Orleans leads the all-time series by a 5-2 margin, and they have taken the last four meetings.
