Greater Stage For Thursday Night Football

Posted Feb 5, 2014

The NFL announced today that starting in 2014, eight regular season Thursday Night Football games will be aired on CBS and simulcast on the league's NFL Network.

With an announcement on the team's 2014 schedule still months away, the Washington Redskins can rest assured that any Thursday Night Football contests will be aired on local network television.

The National Football League announced today that CBS will take over as the producers and primary televisers of the Thursday Night Football programming, which will continue to be simulcast on the NFL Network.

CBS will air eight early-season games that also will be simulcast on NFL Network. NFL Network also will 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.

The full slate of 16 regular-season games will be produced by CBS with its lead broadcasters and production team, including Jim Nantz and Phil Simms, on all Thursday night games.

In a new twist, NFL Network hosts and analysts will be featured in the pregame, halftime and postgame shows along with CBS Sports announcers.

The agreement is for the 2014 season with an additional year at the NFL's option.
