Comcast-owned NBC caught five NFL games on Thursday nights, splitting a 10-game package over the 2016 and 2017 seasons with CBS. The Thursday night games aired on CBS or NBC also will be simulcast on the NFL Network and a digital platform, which will dilute viewership on any individual media outlet. On those Thursday night games - which typically are among the lower-rated NFL matchups - the league will benefit from three revenue streams: cable, broadcast-TV and digital. Media reports said that NBC and CBS paid about $225 million each for the five games, or $450 million over two seasons.

Ridley named David Wood as its new head coach on Monday night. He previously was an assistant at Penn and in charge at Widener, his alma mater.

In early 2010, Wood resigned as Widener's football and golf coach because of medical reasons. He guided the Pride to a 41-32 record and won the Middle Atlantic Athletic Conference championship in 2007.

How many of us have been in the stands at a college football game, part of a giddy fan base in face paint, sweatshirts and hats awash in team colors? If only we had noticed what Sterling Wilson did that fateful fall 2011 day at the University of Southern California. "No one had USC sunglasses," Wilson recalled. That simple observation has vaulted him and high school friend Erin Reilly to impressive heights as the founders of Pop! Promos, a profitable business with 1,660 percent revenue growth from 2012 to 2014, earning it the title of the Philadelphia region's fastest-growing private company in October.

John Lass ended his football career standing on the sideline on Thanksgiving eve, watching his Cherry Hill East team drop a 26-20 overtime decision to rival Cherry Hill West. The 6-foot-5, 270-pound Lass missed the Cougars' last five games after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in an Oct. 23 game against Washington Township. Cherry Hill East lost every game in Lass' absence, but none stung as sharply as the annual Battle for the Boot, as Cherry Hill West tied the score on a Hail Mary touchdown pass on the last play of regulation.
