Despite slipping ratings the past couple of seasons, the NFL just cashed in on a big TV deal.
The Thursday night package of games is headed to FOX, according to Sports Business Journal.
The network will pay $550 million per year for five years. SBJ reports that FOX will air 11 regular season games on Thursday night, with a yet-to-determined amount of other Thursday games airing on the NFL Network.
CBS and NBC split the Thursday night package the past two seasons.
