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 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.
