Wider Broadcast of New England Patriots' Game This Weekend

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,318474,00.html

Quote:
The New England Patriots' shot at history Saturday night will be available to every television viewer in the country after months of wrangling.

Their game against the New York Giants, in which the Patriots could become the first NFL team to go 16-0 in the regular season, was originally scheduled to be shown only on the NFL Network. Fewer than 40 percent of the nation's homes with TVs receive the channel.

The league announced Wednesday that the NFL Network feed will be simulcast on NBC and CBS. It's a major concession by league officials, who repeatedly said they would not show the game anywhere but the NFL Network. The NFL had faced mounting pressure from lawmakers in recent weeks to make the game available to more viewers.
Will you be watching? I will, go Patriots.

on a side note.. I've watched a few games on the NFL network.. And they have absolutely the WORST play by play announcers EVER in the history of broadcast football. I think it was Bryant Gumble and Chris Collinsworth..

I just hope they get someone else to cover this game.
