NEW YORK (WKRC) -- Thursday Night Football is coming to CBS and Local 12. The National Football League announced plans to partner with CBS for the 2014 season.
CBS will air eight early season games that will also simulcast on NFL Network. NFL Network will also televise eight late-season games in the run-up to the playoffs. The mix of games will include 14 on Thursday nights and two late-season games on Saturday.
All 16 regular season games will be announced by CBS broadcasters including Jim Nantz and Phil Simms. NFL Network hosts and analysts will be featured in the pregame, half-time and postgame shows, along with CBS Sports announcers.
The deal is for the 2014 season. The NFL has the option to extend it for a year.
NFL Network built Thursday into a night for NFL fans, said Commissioner Goodell in a news release. 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, said Moonves. CBS is a premium content company and the NFL represents the best premium content there is.
