The football season is in full swing already, but for Fox’s Thursday Night Football crew, the season is just getting started. Michael Strahan, Terry Bradshaw, and Howie Long are hosting the Fox studio show for TNF this season, the first year that Fox has the schedule. And it’s quite the schedule.

The network has a bunch of big games on the schedule, and some top players, including the debut game with the Los Angeles Rams hosting the Minnesota Vikings. Players like Todd Gurley, Jared Goff, Aaron Donald, Brandin Cooks, Kirk Cousins, and Stefon Diggs will be featured, and that’s just in Week 4.

“We’re excited that the schedule is so good,” Strahan said. “It’s fantastic to have the lineup that we have. At the end of the day, people want to see great games, and this Thursday Night Football schedule is the best they’ve ever had.”
