Digital rights to Thursday Night Football games have also exponentially increased.

Fox Sports has won the bidding to air 11 NFL "Thursday Night Football" games next season, SportsBusiness Daily and Bloomberg reported Tuesday night. But in results the league revealed, Thursday Night Football had a higher injury rate (6.9 injuries per game to 6.3) for the 2017 season.

As in recent years, Fox will have to share some of the rights for Thursday Night Football.

Fox has been broadcasting NFC games on Sundays since 1994.

As Variety pointed out, 21st Century Fox's live programming is depleted after the sale to Disney, so Thursday Night Football makes for a key addition.

The company submitted a bid that's higher than the $45 million a game CBS and NBC agreed to pay previous year, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing private information.

"Guys don't have time to recover", wide receiver said after teammate ruptured his Achilles tendon during a Thursday night game in November. The deal signals a renewed commitment toward the value of sports rights for Fox, as the company looks to venture forward focused on the Fox broadcast network and Fox Sports and News channels, which are not covered in the Disney deal.

But Fox's interest - and the NFL's payday - illustrate why the package will remain a part of the league's offerings.

Thursday Night Football is changing networks once again.

While the NFL required CBS and NBC to staff the "Thursday Night Football" booth with their lead broadcast teams (Jim Nantz and Tony Romo called this season's games for CBS, while "Sunday Night Football" linchpins Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth did double-duty for NBC), no such demands are being made of Fox.

When broken down by discrete TV windows, "TNF" is the third most-watched, highest-rated NFL showcase, trailing only the late national Sunday afternoon blockbuster on CBS and Fox and NBC's "Sunday Night Football".
