Division rivals collide as both New York and Washington head into tonight's matchup looking for their first victory of the 2021 season. Last week, Teddy Bridgewater and the Denver Broncos defeated the Giants 27-13. Bridgewater went 28-36 with two touchdowns, while Melvin Gordon shredded the New York defense, accumulating 101 rushing yards on only 11 carries. The Washington Football Team not only failed to win their first game of the season, but they also lost their starting quarterback. Ryan Fitzpatrick was injured during Washington's Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, so Taylor Heinicke gets the start tonight against the Giants.

Do Any Online Streaming Services Include Thursday Night Football?
If you're a cord cutter without a television subscription and don't want to watch on Amazon Prime Video or Twitch, you may be able to stream Thursday Night Football through a streaming service.
Television streaming services are basically cable replacements for cord-cutters, and most of them include Fox. The catch is that if the Fox affiliate in your area doesn't have a deal with any online streaming services, or there is no local Fox affiliate, these services aren't allowed to provide you with a live Fox stream.
Some streaming services also offer plans that include NFL Network, which is the best option if you live in an area where Fox isn't available.
Choosing a streaming plan with NFL Network allows you to watch every game, not only the ones that are broadcast on Fox. You can use your login credentials from the streaming service to sign in to the NFL Network website or mobile app if you want to.
