NFL Network Ups Thurs. Night Games To 13

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NFL is increasing the number of Thursday night games so more of its teams can play in prime time.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said that there will be Thursday night games on the NFL Network from the second to the 15th week of the season, giving all of the league’s teams a chance to appear in prime time on some outlet.

Those games will be in addition to the usual Sunday night and Monday night games, which tend to feature teams coming off good seasons.

Goodell revealed the television scheduling change at his state of the NFL news conference Friday.

He sidestepped a question about expanding the regular season schedule, saying it’s something that would have to be evaluated along with the players.

Another thing..The people in this country,, 75-80-% who never read a book would probably like the NFL to be on 7 nights a week so they could buy their Pizzas, drink their beer, call into to work sick the next day and forget to vote. Are you starting to see our society cleare yet. See what 60 years of Public School education has brought us. Barack Obama in the white hous and the NFL 3-4 days a week! Beautiful.c
