Assuming the games remain with a 9:30am ET kickoff time, I’d like the London games sold as a separate TV package starting next year.

ABC would be the ideal network to carry these games, as a way of easing back into being a regular NFL broadcaster.

Because in 2018, I’d like the remaining NFLN-exclusive TNF games begin to be simulcast on broadcast networks – adding 1 additional game each to CBS and NBC, and putting the remaining 6 games on ABC (those games co-produced by ESPN), with ABC’s games coming in the final weeks of the season when its regular Thursday night line-up is on hiatus for the remainder of the fall and early winter.

When the next TV contracts are signed, ABC then can get exclusive rights to the wild card playoff game it currently simulcasts with ESPN and add the Saturday divisional playoff game not on NBC. And then ABC would become the 4th network in the Super Bowl rotation, after CBS, Fox and NBC.

as an aside, 4 of the TNF package games would primarily air as Saturday doubleheaders, with the late afternoon games simulcast on CBS and NBC, and the nightcaps on ABC (some games may be moved to other days in some years to avoid conflicts with holidays or the Army-Navy game)

Actually it’ll be the second time in London, but the first time as the visiting team. The Saints “hosted” the Chargers in London and won, 37-32.
