Thursday Night Football has found yet another network to call home.
Wednesday morning, the NFL announced that the package would move to Fox for the next five seasons. According to an ESPN report, Fox will broadcast 11 games from Week 4 to Week 15 on Thursday nights during the regular season.
On average, the deal is estimated to be worth around $660 million per season and roughly $60 million per game.
“We feel very confident in their ability to continue to grow this franchise,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said on a conference call Wednesday.
For the past two seasons, NBC joined CBS to broadcast five games each at a cost of $45 million per game.
