Are you ready for some more “Thursday Night Football”?

CBS has renewed its deal with the NFL to produce and air “Thursday Night Football” for the upcoming 2015 season.

The continuing partnership will find CBS broadcasting the first eight “Thursday Night Football” games, which will also be simulcast on the NFL Network.

The NFL Network will also exclusively televise eight games in the run-up to the playoffs. The mix of games will include 14 on Thursday nights and two late-season games on Saturday.

The full slate of 16 regular-season games will be produced by CBS with its lead broadcasters and production team on all Thursday night games. The pregame, halftime and postgame shows will continue to feature NFL Network and CBS Sports hosts and analysts.

In addition to the agreement for the 2015 season, the pact includes an additional year at the NFL’s option.

The current 2014 NFL season will conclude when Super Bowl XLIX kicks off on Sunday, Feb. 1 at 3:30 PM on NBC.
