Amazon and the NFL are teaming up again for Thursday Night Football. As part of a new multiyear deal, Amazon Prime Video and Twitch will stream the 11 Thursday Night Football games being broadcast by Fox, the online retailer and the league announced Wednesday.

Amazon will also stream one additional game that'll be played on a Saturday in the second half of the 2020 NFL regular season. That game will still be televised in the participating teams' home markets.

"We are thrilled to renew our Thursday Night Football deal with the NFL, and are excited to expand our relationship to include exclusive global streaming rights to an additional regular season game in 2020," said Marie Donoghue, Amazon's vice president of global sports video, in a release.
