With the 2016-17 NFL season, its time for the leagues TVs partners to look ahead for the next season and what teams theyll lobby for. Due to the Dallas Cowboys effect on the ratings in the second half of last season, theres no doubt that all of the networks will want to maximize the number of appearances each can televise. But one story coming out of the Super Bowl is that the NFL could move some late-season Thursday Night Football games to Saturday.

Nothing is etched in stone, but once college football season ends, that means that the NFL could schedule some games in primetime on Saturdays. If thats the case, then some teams wont have have to deal with a Thursday night game. And it could mean a higher quality game on a Saturday as compared to Thursday.

Until the schedule is released in the spring, its not known how many games will be played on Saturday and if this plan will come to fruition, but its one of many that the NFL is throwing around in the offseason.
