THURSDAY GAMES NOT GOING ANYWHERE: This year is the first time the NFL has played Thursday night games beginning early in the season, and SI’s Peter King said he believes the NFL is "concerned" with the quality of the games, but "because the ratings are good, I don’t think they’re going to do anything about it.” King noted a "majority of players who play in the Thursday night game wish they had until Sunday,” but unless the "injury total and the percentage of injuries in the Thursday night games is higher than it is in the Sunday games, I don’t think the NFL is going to change” (“PTI,” ESPN, 11/20).
