Press release from CBS Sports, April 20, 2017:

For the fourth consecutive year CBS Sports will televise more NFL games than any other Network with two NFL television packages, THE NFL ON CBS on Sundays and Thursday Night Football.

THE NFL ON CBS Sunday schedule is highlighted by nine doubleheader weekends with marquee match-ups in the 4:25 PM, ET national window, the highest-rated and most-watched NFL television window, as well as CBS’s annual Thanksgiving Day broadcast featuring the Los Angeles Chargers at Dallas Cowboys at 4:30 PM, ET. THE NFL ON CBS kicks off Week 1 on Sunday, Sept. 10. In addition, CBS will televise 10 games featuring the defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots.

Football starts on CBS with the Thursday night primetime package, which this year features five consecutive games beginning September 28 with Chicago at Green Bay. With the five games scheduled for the launch of the Fall Television season, Thursday Night Football will once again help launch CBS’s new primetime schedule.

Other Schedule Highlights include:

Cincinnati at Green Bay – Sunday, Sept. 24 – 4:25 PM, ET

New England at Tampa Bay – Thursday, Oct. 5 – 8:25 PM, ET (TNF)

In addition to the AFC package, THE NFL ON CBS schedule once again features NFC crossover-flex games including Seattle at Los Angeles Rams (October 8), Seattle at New York Giants (October 22) and Minnesota at Carolina (December 10). The regular-season schedule is followed by a post-season slate of AFC Playoff games including a Wild Card Playoff game, two Divisional Playoff games and the AFC Championship game on January 21, 2018.

This year marks the CBS Television Network’s 58th year broadcasting the NFL, as well as the fourth season of partnership between CBS and NFL Network in televising Thursday Night Football.

CBS All Access subscribers will be able to stream all NFL ON CBS games, including Thursday Night Football on CBS, as well as pregame and halftime coverage live on CBS All Access platforms, including on tablets via the CBS App for iOS, Android and Windows 10, on connected device platforms, including Xbox One and Xbox 360, Roku Players, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, and PS4(TM), and online at CBS.com in more than 150 markets across the U.S. CBS All Access subscribers will receive all NFL ON CBS games being broadcast in their local market.

Beginning this season, the opportunity for CBS All Access and eligible pay TV subscribers to stream NFL ON CBS content on NFL digital properties also is provided.
