NFL TV Schedule

The NFL regular season usually runs from September to December. Each team plays 16 games during that time, with half of those games taking place at home and the other half away.

The NFL typically releases its full regular season schedule in mid- to late-April, though this year’s release date has been pushed back to May 9 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

When the schedule is released, the NFL also announces which games will be broadcast nationally on CBS, FOX and NBC. These games are typically “primetime” games that take place on Thursday night (NFL Network), Sunday afternoon (FOX and CBS) or Sunday night (NBC).


The NFL on CBS is the branding used for broadcasts of National Football League (NFL) games that are produced by CBS Sports, the sports division of the CBS television network in the United States. The network has aired NFL game telecasts since 1956 (with exception of a break from 1994 to 1997).

From 2014 to 2017, CBS also broadcast Thursday Night Football games during the first half of the NFL season, through a partnership with the NFL Network. In 2015, CBS was again the home of Thursday Night Football, as well as Super Bowl XLIX. In 2016 and 2017, NBCOurces also simulcasted some Thursday Night Football games scheduled for cable’s NFL Network as part of a new rights deal that gave them partial broadcast windows for those contests.

When NFL games are broadcast on CBS, they are usually shown on one of the network’s over-the-air stations in most markets (such as WCBS-TV in New York City) or on regional sports networks affiliated with the network (such as), but some games may air nationally on either CBS Sports Network or NFL Network due to postseason rules or conflicting programming schedules.


The NFL on Fox, also known as NFL Saturday on Fox and colloquially as the Fox NFL game of the week, is the branding used for broadcasts of National Football League (NFL) games produced by Fox Sports, and televised on the Fox Broadcasting Company (Fox). Game coverage is usually preceded by a pregame show.
