NFL Network has announced the featured subjects for the eighth season of the acclaimed series A Football Life. Buffalo Bills fans will have something to look forward to as the upcoming series will highlight Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas as part of their 11-person lineup.
Season eight will begin on Friday, September 14th at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on the network. The kickoff episode will feature retired quarterback Carson Palmer. The 8:00 p.m. slot on Fridays is a new time for fans of the series. Josh Charles is set to return to the role of narrator.
Palmer will be followed by Lawrence Taylor, Tony Romo, Willie McGinest, and Brian Dawkins. The episode featuring Thurman Thomas does not have an official air date listed via the press release. However, it should be noted that the five known episodes are set to air in the same order as the full list. If that trend holds up, Thomas will be the closing episode for the season.
