Who's playing Thursday Night Football in Week 6 (and how to watch live)?

It's probably going to be a one-sided affair for Thursday Night Football in Week 6, but the ball isn't round. And it's "any given... Thursday," right?

Fans will get to check out an AFC West showdown in prime time on Thursday Night Football in Week 6.

The San Francisco 49ers already have one Thursday Night Football showdown under their belts, having dispatched the New York Giants for the early week game back in Week 3. Barring some unforeseen flexing, the Niners won't appear on Thursday night again until Thanksgiving when they visit their NFC West rivals, the Seattle Seahawks.

But the western division in the opposite conference actually winds up being featured this week on Thursday Night Football, and it's a showdown that should produce a modest amount of entertainment.

Provided one particular celebrity is in attendance.

Thursday Night Football will feature Chiefs hosting Broncos in Week 6

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the 4-1 Kansas City Chiefs play host to quarterback Russell Wilson and the 1-4 Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football, which will kick off at 8:15 p.m. ET from Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.

KC holds a 60-54 all-time record against Denver, although this current matchup figures to go heavily in Kansas City's favor.

The scuffling Broncos appear trending toward a rebuild, one which the 49ers hope they've taken advantage of via a recent trade.

How to watch Chiefs-Broncos live on Thursday Night Football

There are probably going to be at least a few fans of... pop and country superstar Taylor Swift, who just so happens to be awfully close these days to Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

Swift has been accompanying Kelce to games as of late, and a primetime audience will want to tune in and see that.

However, Thursday Night Football's broadcasting rights are currently owned by Amazon Prime, meaning fans will have to have an Amazon Prime account (or know someone who does) to stream the game live on preferred devices.

NFL+ members can stream the game after it concludes.
