The TV channel may not always be consistent for “Thursday Night Football,” but the start time is. The start time won’t change at all during the season.

As such, the first game of Week 3 between the Panthers and Texans will begin at 8:20 p.m. ET. The game will take place at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.

Coverage of the game will be taking place all day on NFL Network, but the official pregame show will begin at 7:30 p.m. ET.

The Panthers enter Thursday night’s game as one of seven NFL teams with a 2-0 record. They’ll look to be the first to improve to 3-0 on the season.

Meanwhile, the Texans will be starting rookie quarterback Davis Mills. The third-round rookie made his first NFL appearance in relief of an injured Tyrod Taylor and now will have to square off against a Panthers defense that just limited Jameis Winston and the Saints to seven points. Through two games, the Panthers have allowed a league-low 10.5 points per game, so this matchup won’t be easy for Mills.

Below is everything to know about the TV schedule for the Panthers vs. Texans Week 3 opener, plus a look at the rest of the NFL schedule for the week.

WEEK 3 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

NFL INJURY UPDATES: Tyrod Taylor

NFL schedule Week 3

The Panthers and Texans will kickstart Week 3 of the 2021 NFL season, as Carolina and Sam Darnold look to improve to 3-0 over Davis Mills and the Texans. There are seven 2-0 teams left standing across the NFL, and two will be facing off in Week 3 — the Buccaneers and Rams. That will be the best game of the week and it will mark Tom Brady’s first NFL game played in Los Angeles.

The “Sunday Night Football” matchup between the Packers and 49ers looks appetizing as well. The Packers have played poorly against the 49ers in recent years, so Aaron Rodgers and Co. should be motivated for that one.

Below is the full schedule for Week 3 of the 2021 NFL season.
