The 2013 NFL season begins this week, and Thursday Night Football kicks off in Week 2 (Sept. 12) when the New York Jets travel to face the New England Patriots. The game will be televised by the NFL Network at 8:25 p.m. ET.

The defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens will not be featured in a Thursday night NFL Network game, but the runner-up 49ers will be. San Francisco travels to St. Louis on Sept. 26.

Overall, Thursday Night Football on the NFL Network will include 13 regular-season NFL games.

Note: Baltimore opens the 2013 NFL season at Denver on Thursday, Sept. 5 at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC. Although the game is on Thursday, it is branded as part of the Sunday Night Football package.

A second game, Pittsburgh at Baltimore on Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 28, is also branded as Sunday Night Football.

      Agree, a Thursday night game should be listed in the Thursday night package. Instead, it’s in the Sunday night listing.

      It’s actually on NBC. This list came from the NFL, and they don’t list the Baltimore-Denver game on their Thursday night football page for some reason. It’s listed on the Sunday night page. We added a notation above.

      Andrew, it’s actually the NFL that is confusing people. The Thursday, Sept. 5 game featuring Baltimore at Denver is actually part of the Sunday Night Football package. It’s also listed on the Sunday Night Football list on the NFL’s official website.

      Although that game wasn’t included on the list, we added a note above. Thanks for visiting the site and bringing this to our attention.
