The NFL has worked out its next round of TV deals – with Amazon joining the list of networks carrying NFL action. Here’s how it breaks down:

Fox and CBS will continue to carry Sunday afternoon games, for about $2 billion per year. NBC will also pay $2 billion to continue to host Sunday Night Football.

ESPN and ABC are paying $2.7 billion for Monday Night Football, which will include three doubleheaders on the schedule, as well as two Saturday games in the final week of the season.

Finally, Amazon is paying $1 billion to be the exclusive home of Thursday Night Football games.

And don’t forget – we’re getting an extra game, with the league expanding to a 17-game schedule in 2021.

Which network has the best football coverage? Will the Amazon deal work out, or will it keep people from tuning in?
