If I read this article right, the NFL Network is going to start showing entire games from past years, in it's NFL Classics series. It kicks off this Thursday with a recent Bears game.
The Bears' improbable comeback victory over the Arizona Cardinals last Oct. 16 will kick off NFL Network's "NFL Classics" series Thursday night.
The first NFL game to be televised came in 1939. Over the seven decades since, more than 12,000 NFL regular-season games, plus an additional 400-plus playoff games have been played.
None have been seen since their live airing - until now.
This expansive collection - the greatest untapped library in sports or entertainment - has nearly 70 years worth of games to choose from and NFL Network will begin to show them.
The show will air this Thursday at 7PM CT.
