CBS to air Thursday night football games

By Brian Stelter, CNN

Thursday Night Football is coming to broadcast television for the first time.

The National Football League announced on Wednesday that it had awarded the TV rights to eight Thursday games to CBS (CBSFortune 500), buttressing what has been a mutually beneficial relationship between the NFL and its partners at the broadcast networks.

The deal will only apply to the 2014 season, though the NFL could opt to extend it through 2015. The NFL Network, which has carried Thursday games on cable for nearly a decade, will simulcast the eight that will be on CBS, and will carry eight other games exclusively.

Roger Goodell, the NFL commissioner, credited the NFL Network with building Thursday "into a night for NFL fans." He added in a statement that the NFL's goal "is to bring these games to more fans on broadcast television with unprecedented promotion and visibility for Thursday Night Football on CBS."
