    Man, I am going to be p!ssed when they turn this game off.

    You know it is coming

    And if you have the Sunday ticket, it is blacked out on the Sunday ticket when it is televised locally, even when tehy stop televising it locally!

    They'll only "turn it off" locally if there is another game to switch to. However, they usually only do that in the waning minutes of the 4th quarter. And I've never seen them do it in a "BIG GAME" Match-up like this one was supposed to be..

    As I recall the 700 channel on DirecTV gets switched back on when the network (CBS or Fox) switches to "a more competitive game". Doesn't happen instantaneously but it does (should) happen. I don't have it this year, but that's the way it was in the recent past.
