INDIANAPOLIS - The NFL will play Thursday Night Football games starting in Week 2, commissioner Roger Goodell announced Friday. Every team will be featured once, giving each team a chance to be highlighted in primetime. "“We have eight games currently on the NFL Network schedule," Goodell said. "We’re going to expand that to 13 games starting in the 2012 season.  We’re going to be playing Thursday night games from Week 2 to Week 15.  This will result in every team appearing in a Thursday football game and every team having a primetime appearance throughout the season." "We think that’s great for the fans, we think it’s great for the teams, because everyone will get that primetime exposure, and we think it’s great for the network.  The network continues to do an incredible job of promoting our sport.  It’s giving fans an opportunity, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to get NFL football.  They’ve shown their demand for that, and they’ve shown how much they want to see football." "Every cable operator other than the two, have seen that it’s good for their customers.  We’ll continue to work with them, we’ll continue to try and get an agreement, but the market has spoken.  The NFL Network is here, and it’s going to continue to grow.”
