Sky Sports has been awarded the rights to the NFL’s Sunday Night Football, America’s most watched programme, for the next two years.

This development brings viewers an additional game a week and takes the schedule to more than 100 live matches a season.

NFL fans with Sky Sports can watch five games a week across the regular season, every playoff clash, the Super Bowl and the Pro Bowl.

Also new for this season is Monday Night Football, which alongside Thursday and Sunday games, provides viewers with more matches during the regular season.
