Everyone made the same joke about Al Michaels while watching the AFC Wild Card Playoff game between the Los Angeles Chargers and Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday night.

Trevor Lawrence got off to a brutal start in the game and threw four interceptions in the first half. All the turnovers helped the Chargers get out to a dominant 27-0 lead.

Fans watching the Jaguars get blown out in a primetime game reminded them so much of a “Thursday Night Football” game, the kind Michaels has called for Amazon this season. Amazon has been known for getting poor matchups and games that turn into 1-sided blowouts, so Saturday’s playoff game fit right in.

Even though the Chargers-Jaguars game was being broadcast by NBC, who was using Michaels to call the game, fans joked about an Amazon curse following Michaels.

Based on the way the Chargers-Jags game was going, it was hard not to get that feeling. The game might as well have been on Amazon … and on Thursday night.
