Thursday Night Football launches its first-ever Network television coverage with a Primetime special, UNDER THE LIGHTS, on Wednesday, Sept. 10 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET) on the CBS Television Network and also on NFL Network on Tuesday, Sept. 16 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET).
CBS Sports' lead NFL play-by-play announcer and The Voice of Thursday Night Football Jim Nantz will host the one-hour special that will celebrate some of the greatest and most memorable moments in the history of prime time football and preview the Thursday Night Football schedule.
The special will revisit classic Primetime moments in NFL history and feature conversations between CBS and NFL stars including Mark Harmon, Tom Selleck, LL Cool J, Billy Gardell, Jerry Rice, Andrew Luck, Jadaveon Clowney, Ben Roethlisberger, Earl Campbell and Julio Jones as they recall their fondest and most memorable Primetime moments. Campbell and Clowney talk about what it means to be a rookie in Houston, while Harmon and Luck talk Pac 10 (Pac 12) football and what it means to play in prime time.
CBS and NFL Network will begin its Network debut coverage of Thursday Night Football on September 11 with the Pittsburgh Steelers visiting the Baltimore Ravens. Nantz and Phil Simms, along with Tracy Wolfson reporting, will call the action. The full slate of 16 regular-season Thursday Night Football games will be produced by CBS with its broadcasters and production team.
