Screen Shot 2014-01-12 at 9.42.47 PMThe NFL Network made Thursday Night Football the norm this season, airing it every single Thursday of the week, excluding Week 17.

Now the NFL, according to CBS Sports, will be shopping a one-year deal to cable networks to air Thursday night games for all of the 2014 season. The league will be asking for around $800 million to get the deal, but NFL Network would like to keep their late-season Thursday night games.

It's unknown if any cable company would agree to a deal unless if they get all of the Thursday night games instead of sharing with NFL Network.

But why not keep it with NFL Network?

"This has always been the plan -- to use the full-season package to get higher carriage fees and get on Time Warner Cable, then sell off half the package," writes Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

Bidding for the TNF package begins in September.
