Bidding gets started for NFL's Thursday night games

CBS (CBS -0.4%) and Fox Sports (FOXA) have submitted bids for the right to air as many as eight Thursday night football games, according to Reuters.

The league is selling the package after seeing its own network deliver sub-standard ratings compared to games aired on Sunday and Monday nights.

The bidding is in its early stages and is also expected to include ESPN (DIS), NBC (CMCSA), and Turner Sports (TWX). Media analysts think the winner will have to dig deep.

    Media analysts must have been putting in overtime to "think the winner will have to dig deep."


    Of course the winner will have to dig deep. This is the NFL we are talking about.


    Thank goodness the NFL Network is not carrying these games anymore.

    Good to here I can watch TNF from home next year. Those games are always the worst of the week though, hope they don't dig too deep.
