NFL NETWORK'S "THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL" FEATURES TWO WEEK 5 GAMES

Buffalo Bills at Cleveland Browns - Thursday, October 3 at 8:00 PM ET

San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders - Sunday, October 6 at 8:30 PM PT

The eighth season of NFL Network's Thursday Night Football continues this week with a pair of Week 5 games.

On Thursday, October 3 at 8:00 PM ET, rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel and the Buffalo Bills travel to face quarterback Brian Hoyer and the first-place Cleveland Browns. Play-by-play announcer Brad Nessler and two-time Emmy-nominated analyst Mike Mayock call the game in their third season together, and Alex Flanagan provides reports from the sidelines. To kick off the National Football League and NFL Players Association's support of October being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, both the Bills and Browns will be donning pink clothing, including cleats, gloves, towels and hats.

On Sunday, October 6 at 8:30 PM PT (11:30 PM ET), the Oakland Raiders host the San Diego Chargers in an AFC West divisional matchup on a special edition of Thursday Night Football. The game will also air on over-the-air stations locally in San Diego (KFMB) and Oakland (KRON). The telecast will be produced by CBS Sports and feature their announcing crew of play-by-play announcer Ian Eagle and analyst Dan Fouts.

The Chargers-Raiders game was originally slated for 1:25 PM PT (4:25 PM ET) on CBS. The move to Sunday night was made in response to Monday's announcement by Major League Baseball of its ALDS schedule which has the Oakland A's hosting a game on Saturday, October 5 at 6:07 PM PT. The Raiders share the O.co Coliseum with the A's and the Coliseum requires time to convert back into a football stadium in order to host the game.

As part of the NFL's recently announced partnership with Twitter, in-game highlights will be accessible for Twitter users on PCs, tablets, and mobile devices from both this week's Thursday night and Sunday night games on NFL Network. The in-game highlights on Twitter are in addition to other game footage, news, analysis, fantasy football advice, and voting platforms from NFL Network and NFL.com that are part of a seven-day-a-week customized NFL video content programming schedule created specifically for the Twitter platform (twitter.com/NFL).

NFL Network's Craftsman Presents NFL Total Access Kickoff pregame show is live from FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland Thursday starting at 6:00 PM ET. This week, former NFL MVP LaDainian Tomlinson joins host Rich Eisen and Hall of Famers Deion Sanders, Marshall Faulk and Michael Irvin. Reporters Alex Flanagan and Stacey Dales provide pregame news reports from the locker rooms and interviews with players and coaches, while NFL Media's national insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Media's Mike Silver are on-location with the latest news from around the NFL.

Featured on the pregame show this week:

· Hall of Famer and former Cleveland Browns running back Jim Brown live on-set

· A feature on what the Bills mean to the city of Buffalo, featuring Hall of Famers and former Bills greats Jim Kelly and Thurman Thomas

· A discussion of the Browns' improved play following the trade of the No. 3 overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft running back Trent Richardson, and a breakdown of Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer

· Are the Buffalo Bills built for playoff contention?

Eisen, Sanders, Faulk, Irvin, Tomlinson, Rapoport and Silver provide additional analysis on the Lexus Halftime Show and the postgame show. Following the game, hosts Dan Hellie and Amber Theoharis, and NFL Network analysts Darren Sharper, Willie McGinest and Heath Evans will deliver a postgame edition of NFL Total Access live from NFL Network's studios in Los Angeles.

Through three games of its 13-game schedule, NFL Network's Thursday Night Football is averaging a 5.4 US HH rating and 8.6 million viewers - on pace to be the highest-rated and most-watched Thursday Night Football season ever.

International award-winning actress and recording artist Priyanka Chopra's track "In My City" is the new theme for Thursday Night Football. This is Chopra's second year being featured on NFL Network as last season she kicked off the Thursday Night Football pregame show.
