Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL will continue its partnership with CBS to produce and broadcast Thursday Night Football for the 2015 season, it was announced Sunday.

CBS will broadcast the first eight TNF games for 2015, which also will be simulcast on NFL Network. NFL Network will also exclusively televise eight games leading up to the playoffs. The total mix of games will include 14 on Thursday nights and two late-season games on Saturday.

The full slate of 16 regular-season games will be produced by CBS with its lead broadcasters and production team on all Thursday night games. The pregame, halftime and postgame shows will continue to feature NFL Network and CBS Sports hosts and analysts.

The agreement is for the 2015 season with an additional year at the NFL’s option.

"We are pleased to extend our partnership with CBS for Thursday Night Football," said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. "The promotion and production by CBS and NFL Network last season made Thursday night a night for NFL football. We look forward to working again next season with CBS."

In addition to TNF in 2015, CBS will conclude its 56th year broadcasting the NFL with its exclusive presentation of Super Bowl 50 from Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., on Feb. 7, 2016.
