Thursday Night Football Schedule 2012: Falcons Host Division-Rival Saints In Week 13

The NFL has made sure that every team will play at least one prime-time game this season. In order to do that, NFL Network's "Thursday Night Football" schedule has been expanded from eight weeks last season to 13 weeks in 2012, running from Week 2 to Week 15.

The Falcons will host the Saints in Week 13 for Atlanta's lone Thursday night appearance. The Falcons played one Thursday night game last season, blasting the Jacksonville Jaguars 41-14 at home in Week 15. The Saints went 13-3 last year, losing in the Divisional Round to the San Francisco 49ers, but New Orleans is dealing with the results of the bounty investigation that has led to several coaches being suspended for various amounts of time. Atlanta lost both games against the Saints last season.

Here's a look at the entire "Thursday Night Football" schedule for 2012:

Week 2: Bears vs. Packers

Week 3: Giants vs. Panthers

Week 4: Browns vs. Ravens

Week 5: Cardinals vs. Rams

Week 6: Steelers vs. Titans

Week 7: Seahawks vs. 49ers

Week 8: Buccaneers vs. Vikings

Week 9: Chiefs vs. Chargers

Week 10: Colts vs. Jaguars

Week 11: Dolphins vs. Bills

Week 13: Saints vs. Falcons

Week 14: Broncos vs. Raiders

Week 15: Bengals vs. Eagles
