Jerry Jones Says NFL "Could Easily Have" A Thursday Doubleheader

Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones said the league is discussing playing two games on Thursday nights, though nothing is imminent. That appears to contradict statements from NFL PR execs, who on Tuesday shot down a story in the Wall Street Journal that quoted a source saying the NFL was considering a Thursday night doubleheader. In an interview yesterday at his team’s HQs, Jones, who also chairs the NFL Network Committee, replied affirmatively to a question about whether the NFL was discussing the doubleheader concept.

He said, “We could easily have a doubleheader on Thursday. I don’t think that is out of the realm of thought, we haven’t set up how we will do it.” All options are open, he said, when asked if a second Thursday night game would also air on NFL Network or elsewhere.
