One of these days, it’s going to dawn on them.
… During his state of the NFL address on Friday, commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the league would expand the number of Thursday night games.
Under the plan, there will be a Thursday night game on the NFL Network from the second to the 15th week of the season. Previously, the NFL didn’t start playing games on Thursday night until mid-November.
The move could seriously cut into ESPN’s exclusive Thursday night coverage of college football. Teams from the SEC, ACC, and Big East Conference usually highlight the schedule.
