Specifically tailored to the league’s Thursday Night Football, it’s safe to say that Thursday nights will be a lot more interesting in the sports realm this fall.

Goodell expressed that “Twitter is where live events unfold and is the right partner for the NFL as we take the latest step in serving fans around the world live NFL football.” Check out Goodell’s announcement below and let us know your thoughts on the NFL and Twitter’s partnership.
