NFL Network “live” broadcast will join 49ers-Packers game an hour late

Aug 26, 2016 at 10:53 AM--


NFL Network explained why their "live" broadcast of tonight's Week 3 preseason match-up between the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers was listed on their schedule as starting at 8 PM PT and 11 PM ET. Kickoff is at 7 PM PT and 10 PM ET.

Due to broadcast restrictions with the CBS airing of the Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay Buccaneers game, NFL Network will join the game in progress an hour after kickoff. However, NFL Network does note that the full-game re-airing will occur on Saturday at 1:30 PM PT.

Tonight's game will likely feature the highly publicized first game of the preseason for 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick amid a quarterback competition with Blaine Gabbert. For Packers fans, it will also likely be the only preseason game that quarterback Aaron Rodgers plays in. So to join the game late and possibly miss a big chunk of play by those two quarterbacks is a huge disappointment for fans outside of the Bay Area and Wisconsin home markets.



The game will be televised on KPIX 5 in the Bay Area, NBC 26 in Green Bay, and various other networks throughout Northern California and the Great Lakes region.

CBS analyst Tony Romo offered high praise about Fred Warner during Sunday's broadcast of the San Francisco 49ers at New England Patriots, calling the third-year defender the best linebacker in football. "He runs with the wide receiver like he's a corner," Romo said. "He does so many things at a high level." The comments came after Warner intercepted Patriots quarterback Cam Newton, his second interception of the season. "They have, probably the best tight end, second you can argue over at Kansas City, the tight end, but linebacker? That's the best linebacker in ball, right there," Romo continued. Warner entered the game with a team-leading 50 tackles, which ranks in the NFL's top 10. Added Romo: "Warner, I'm telling you, I

The NFL announced today that the league is canceling the 2021 Pro Bowl game due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. It was scheduled to occur on January 31, 2021, at Allegiant Stadium — home of the Las Vegas Raiders. Las Vegas is being awarded the Pro Bowl in 2022. Pro Bowl honors and rosters will still be announced in December and continue to be based on the consensus votes from fans, players, and coaches, with each group's total votes counting as one-third of the selection process. The elimination of the Pro Bowl could allow the NFL to add a Week 18 to the schedule before the playoffs. That would help if NFL games continue to be postponed and rescheduled due to COVID-19. The league could eliminate the Pro Bowl week entirely without
