Network Execs Meeting With NFL Officials On Thursday Package
Published January 22, 2014
All of the league's TV partners submitted bids last Friday for the Thursday night game package. Turner Sports also placed a bid. It is not clear who is the front runner or how much the package is worth, since nobody outside of the NFL has seen the bids. Sources said that if ESPN wins, it would put the games on ABC. CBS, Fox and NBC also most likely would put the games on their broadcast nets. The available package will only be one year, and games likely will be simulcast on NFL Network.
