NFL: Four networks bid on Thursday games
First Published Jan 19 2014 04:57 pm • Last Updated Jan 19 2014 11:23 pm

Seattle • All four of the NFL’s network partners have bid on the Thursday night television package, a person with knowledge of the bidding process told The AP on Sunday.

The league has used its NFL Network to televise the games but recently put up the 13-game series for bids and received them from NBC, Fox, CBS and ESPN. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the bidders are not being made public.

Turner Sports has also bid, and there’s a strong possibility ESPN would put the games on ABC should it be chosen by the league.

The NFL also has expressed a desire to simulcast the games on NFL Network.
