CBS To Televise Eight Thursday Night NFL Games

NEW YORK (AP) - The NFL says CBS will televise eight of its Thursday night games next season CBS won bidding for the games, an increasingly valuable property for network television. The games will be simulcast on the NFL Network and come during the first half of the season.

The league's cable network will keep the second-half games for itself.

The NFL says the contract is for one year, and the league has an option to extend it for 2015. The CBS lead broadcasting team of Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will be in the booth for all 16 games.
