Peter King: Teams Will Lobby to NFL to be Permanent Host for 'Black Friday' Game

The Miami Dolphins and New York Jets are set to play the first Black Friday game in NFL history this week, and it sounds like it will be a coveted game slot for years to come.

Peter King of NBC Sports declared on Monday that it can be expected that teams will be vying to earn a permanent spot in the Black Friday game similar to how the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions have on Thanksgiving Day.

"The Dolphins are good TV, so the game still works. Prediction: Ratings will be gold, and just like the Cowboys and Lions with the annual Thanksgiving games, more than one team will lobby the NFL to be the permanent host on Black Friday afternoon," King stated.
