NEW YORK (KNOE 8 News) – CBS has partnered with the NFL Network to produce and televise Thursday night football games this coming fall, the NFL announced Thursday.

The games will air locally on KNOE-TV.

Eight early season Thursday night games will be broadcast by CBS, with six later season games on Thursday night and two Saturday days being shown by the NFL Network.

The broadcast team for the Thursday night game will be CBS' lead football team of Phil Simms and Jim Nantz.

"NFL Network built Thursday into a night for NFL fans," said Commissioner Goodell. "Our goal is to bring these games to more fans on broadcast television with unprecedented promotion and visibility for Thursday Night Football on CBS."
