Facebook Reportedly In Talks To Stream NFL's 'Thursday Night Football' Games

A matchup of the titans of tech and TV would mark a watershed moment for the media and Silicon Valley, whose leading companies are flush with cash and hungry for premium content to attract more eyeballs and ad dollars.

The NFL, in turn, could use those deep pockets to help push up the bidding for its Thursday games, which were introduced 10 years ago.

"The more customers, the higher price the NFL can command," said Brett Sappington, director of research at Parks Associates. "For Facebook, the NFL would drive huge volumes of consumption to get advertising and data. Facebook has to remain relevant. With other social media platforms emerging, Facebook has to push the envelope."
