CBS Scores Eight Thursday NFL Games

CBS this week reached an agreement with the National Football League (NFL) to televise eight Thursday night games this coming season.  The games will be simulcast on the NFL Network.

The eight games will be hosted by Jim Nantz and Phil Simms, with NFL Network hosts handling pregame, halftime and postgame shows along with the CBS Sports announcers.

The agreement is for the 2014 season only, but the NFL holds an option for an additional year.
