Black Friday isn’t just for deep discounts this year — it’s also for watching pro football. For the first time, the NFL will have a game on the day after Thanksgiving, appropriately dubbed the “NFL Black Friday Game.” And since Black Friday is typically shopping-related, the game is also appropriately presented by Amazon.

In fact, throughout the game, Amazon will drop one new limited-time Black Friday deal via a QR code during each quarter of the game itself, as well as during pre-game, halftime and post-game coverage.
The 2023 NFL Black Friday game takes place Nov. 24 with the Miami Dolphins taking on the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Kickoff time is at 12 p.m. PT/3 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast live on Amazon Prime Video. Anyone with an Amazon account can livestream the game for free, even if you’re not an Amazon Prime member or a subscriber to the Prime Video streaming service.
In fact, all you have to do to watch the game live is create a free Amazon account here and you’re good to go. (While you’re there, you can also shop the site’s 2023 Black Friday deals, which are live now.)
