NEW YORK - The National Football League and CBS have reached agreement on a deal that will bring Thursday Night Football games to CBS primetime.
Under the agreement, eight regular season games will air simultaneously on CBS and NFL Network during the 2014-2015 season. CBS will also continue to air games on Sundays.
"NFL Network built Thursday into a night for NFL fans," said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in a statement. "Our goal is to bring these games to more fans on broadcast television with unprecedented promotion and visibility for Thursday Night Football on CBS."
"We are very pleased to build on our outstanding partnership with the NFL by expanding our coverage to Thursday nights. CBS is a premium content company, and the NFL represents the best premium content there is. I look forward to all this new deal will do for us not only on Thursday nights, but across our entire schedule," added CBS Corporation CEO Leslie Moonves.
