The Eagles head into Green Bay today to take on the Packers at Lambeau Field on Thursday Night Football with their backs against the wall, desperate to avoid a 1-3 start.
Calling the game tonight will be Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, who was forced to clarify a tweet he sent earlier this week that many read as taking a shot at Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Aikman, who recently got a call from his Fox Sports bosses for going after Fox Sports Radio host Doug Gottlieb on Twitter, told USA Today he wasn’t taking a shot a Mahomes, who was last year’s NFL MVP — he was going after Joshua Brisco, the host of the Athletic’s Times Out podcast.
“My tweet was directed at the writer," Aikman said, referring to Brisco.
This is also the first Thursday Night Football game that fans can stream on Amazon Prime. In addition to a telecast of Fox’s broadcast, there are three additional audio options — a Spanish-language broadcast, a U.K. English-language broadcast with Derek Rae and Tommy Smyth, and a third English-language option featuring analysis by Hannah Storm and Hall of Fame broadcaster and Philadelphia native Andrea Kremer.
Of course, Eagles fans can also mute their televisions and turn on the radio to listen to Merrill Reese and Mike Quick call the game for 94.1 WIP, which is synced with the television broadcast.
