In the last couple seasons, Peyton and Eli Manning brought in major success with the ‘Manningcast’ on Monday Night Football (MNF) for ESPN and ABC.
However, it appears that former NFL punter, WWE commentator/wrestler and popular sports YouTuber, Pat McAfee, could end up in the shot spot for a ‘MegaCast’ show similar to the Mannings’ for Thursday Night Football (TNF) on Amazon/Prime Video.
Although there is no deal as of yet between Amazon and McAfee per Front Office Sports, the potential ‘McAfee-Cast’ is going to be broadcasted at his home base in Indianapolis without having to travel to game. This format will be the same as how Peyton and Eli did their shows for MNF.
Amazon will be paying the NFL around $1 billion a year to be the home for TNF through the 2033 season.
