Sundays and Mondays are already blocked off. Add Thursdays to the list.
The NFL is here Thursday night's on NFL Nework. And in a very big way this year. There are some really good matchups, beginning with the AFC East rival Jets and Patriots.
Here are the favorites of the announcing team, Mike Mayock and Brad Nessler, who will be broadcasting the games. They noted these seven Thursday games stood out to them last month at an NFL event in New York. (AP Photo) Jordan Raanan has covered the NFL since 2005.
