What time is the NFL game tonight? TV schedule, channel for Rams vs. Seahawks in Week 5



The Rams and the Seahawks may both be west coast teams, but that doesn’t mean that their location will impact the start time of “Thursday Night Football.” The program will kick off at the same time it always does as NFL Week 5 draws nearer.

The game will begin at 8:20 p.m. ET, or 5:20 local time in Seattle. The Seahawks faithful will surely bring a lot of energy into the team’s meeting with the Rams, who are coming off a loss to the undefeated Cardinals.

The Rams and Seahawks met during the postseason last year, and Sean McVay and Co. were able to pull off a win. That came despite an injury to John Wolford, who was supposed to start in place of a banged-up Jared Goff. The Rams won the game 30-20 with Cam Akers doing most of the damage on the ground.

Akers won’t play in this one — he has a torn Achilles and is out for the year — so Matthew Stafford will have to go toe-to-toe with Russell Wilson to lead Los Angeles to a win and keep them in second place in the NFC West. It will be a compelling game, but fans will have to wait until 8:20 p.m. ET on Thursday to watch the game.

Below is everything to know about the TV schedule for the Rams and Seahawks game that will kickstart Week 5, plus a look at the rest of Week 5 action.
