In a new deal between the NFL and TV providers on Thursday, Amazon walked onto the field and bought the rights to carry all Thursday night games to air almost exclusively on the subscription service Amazon Prime. Currently, there is no broadcast or cable network on board for Thursday night, according to MSN.
