The NFL has reached a deal to share Thursday Night Football broadcasts between CBS and NBC, the league announced Monday.
Under the new deal, CBS and NBC will air five Thursday night games apiece in 2016-2017.
CBS has aired eight Thursday night games a year for the last two years. NFL Network has simulcast those games and had exclusive rights to the others. Under the new deal, NFL Network will have an exclusive eight-game package that includes Thursday night games and late-season Saturday night games in addition to continuing to simulcast the CBS and NBC games.
