NFL Network Adds Five Thursday Night Games To 2012 Season

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has announced that it will televise an additional five regular-season games in 2012 as part of its Thursday Night Football package. Thursday Night Football on NFL Network will now feature 13 games from weeks 2-15 while skipping week 12. The week 12 game is on Thanksgiving which will be televised by NBC as well as the week 1 season opener. The increase of games guarantees that all 32 NFL teams will play in at least one primetime game and play on one Thursday following a Sunday game. This settles a issue where many complained that some teams had more time to prepare for games than others.

Thursday Night Football averaged a record 6.2 million viewers in 2011 and broke a record for most views of a Thursday Night Football game when the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers played on Thanksgiving night.
