According to ProFootballTalk, the NFL is going to seriously consider doing away with Thursday Night Football games after the 2017 season.

With mounting criticism of the quality of every-week Thursday football, scattered suggestions have emerged in recent weeks that the NFL could pull the plug on the experiment. Those suggestions are stronger than that; per a source with knowledge of the situation, the league will be considering the possibility of ending, or at least limiting, Thursday Night Football.

Options include (but aren’t limited to) getting rid of Thursday games completely and possibly starting the package at Thanksgiving and continuing it through the end of the season, with games likely to generate broad interest selected in April for November/December programming.

The reality is that there aren’t enough good games on Thursday night to justify it’s existence. Kudos to the NFL for swallowing their pride and realizing that the experiment failed.
