Former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will be one of Amazon Prime Video’s “Thursday Night Football” analysts, according to Tuesday’s announcement.
Fitzpatrick, who retired earlier this month after 17 NFL seasons, is expected to team up with Tony Gonzalez and Richard Sherman for Amazon’s NFL pregame, half-time, and postgame coverage on Thursday night.
The Bengals announced in May that they would face the Miami Dolphins on Amazon Prime Video on Thursday night on Sunday 4 at Paul Brown Stadium. The showdown will potentially feature a showdown between the top two quarterbacks selected in the 2020 NFL Draft – Joe Burrow (first overall) of the Bengals and Tua Tagovailoa (fifth overall) of the Dolphins.
The TNF 2022 schedule is slated to feature each of the nine teams Fitzpatrick has played for during his NFL career: Rams, Bengals, Bills, Titans, Texas, Jets, Buccaneers, Dolphins, and Commanders.
Amazon will pair Herbstreit with former Reds radio play-by-play announcer Al Michaels at its “Thursday Night Football” broadcast booth in the fall.
