In addition to agreeing to sponsor the Super Bowl halftime show, Apple is also in talks with the NFL for the rights to a package of Sunday football games, according to the NYT. The league has apparently been in talks with Google, Amazon and ESPN to stream the games, but talks with Apple are believed to be in their later stages. The NFL is reportedly asking $2.5 billion for the package, a steep increase over the roughly $1.5 billion its current NFL Sunday Ticket deal with DirecTV is believed to be worth.
