At a glance

  • Al Michaels didn’t sugarcoat how bad some of the matchups were throughout the NFL regular season on Amazon’s “Thursday Night Football” package.
  • Michaels, who finished his first season calling “TNF” games for Amazon last month, explained one instance when it was a struggle to get through the broadcast and compared it to driving a used car.
  • A dismal Week 4 game between Indianapolis and Denver was so bad that Michaels wondered on air, “Is it possible this game could be so bad that it’s actually good?”
  • The “Thursday Night Football” package had no shortage of low points and lackluster performances, including Jets quarterback Zach Wilson being benched in favor of Chris Streveler in the third quarter of a 19-3 loss to the Jaguars on Dec. 22.
