The New York Giants – who left 3.5 hours early but probably should have left a day early – are now getting an extra day to prepare and Brett Favre is getting an extra day to heal. The game has been moved to Monday night.
This scenario happened in 2004, and most recently in 2008. In 2008, Baltimore’s game at Houston was delayed ’til Monday night and CBS retained the coverage.
I think situations like this would be a great opportunity to get even more revenue and even more headlines by airing it nationally. Fox has the rights for this game.
UPDATE: The NFL has said they have not decided when and on what network(s) the game will be aired.
UPDATE 2: The game is being broadcast at 7 PM CT in Fox markets who were going to get it tomorrow.
