Could ABC take the NFL away from CBS or Fox?
The New York Post's Andrew Marchand reports "ABC is kicking around the idea of going hard after CBS’ or Fox’s NFL Sunday packages." ABC hasn't had regularly scheduled NFL games since it gave up on Monday Night Football after the 2005 season. In recent years, ABC has simulcast sibling network ESPN's NFL playoff games. Marchand adds: "It is a tad early to fully figure out what will transpire on the most important rights in American sports television, as Fox’s and CBS’ NFL packages do not end until after the 2022 season. Fox’s Thursday night and NBC’s Sunday night are also up in 2022. ESPN’s Monday Night Football is done after 2021."
