NFL Reportedly Considering Adding Additional Thursday Night Games

Ethan Grant@DowntownEGAnalyst IOctober 16, 2013

If you're a fan of the NFL's Thursday Night Football series, this news is music to your ears: According to a report from Matthew Futterman and Shalini Ramachandran of the Wall Street Journal (paywall), the league is considering expanding its short-week schedule. 

Currently, 13 contests are televised by the NFL Network on Thursday nights during the regular season. If the WSJ report is correct, the league would add some double-headers to the mix and potentially look at other networks to cover additional games.
