Fox is willing to spend as much as $2 billion a year to keep the NFL. That's a big increase from it’s current deal for Sunday afternoon games. It also airs games on Thursday nights.

A Bloomberg report says that Fox is in for a fight with ESPN/ABC who wants to expand its coverage one way or another.

Under one scenario, Disney would buy Fox’s Thursday games and air them on ABC, while keeping “Monday Night Football” on ESPN. There’s also rumors of simulcasting the games on both ABC and ESPN.

The move would almost certainly get Disney back in the super bowl rotation. ABC hasn’t aired a super bowl since 2006.
