    Not sure if anyone heard this, but the NFLN will be carrying all the preseason games live this year. At least according to their commercials, anyways. If its true, that will be great for those of us not living in New England anymore.

    They may have live lookins, they won't be all on live. They can't be with so many games at the same time.

    The NFLN replay of the first Pats preseason game is 11pm EST next Thursday, pretty much starting as the game ends. Great for those of us in CA, an 8pm start :D

    I'd really like an alternative to Don Criqui and Randy Cross. Gesh.

    Ditto. From the schedule

    NFL Network Games
    it looks like they will be covering 5 of pre-season week 1 games live and then 2 or 3 each week. They are showing them all eventually on tape delay or at odd hours.....If you have a burning desire to watch the Bengals and Saints at 4am.............

    You're not going to get one. NFLN just replays the WCVB (well, now WBZ) broadcast. They're not having their own announcers do them.

    Actually, I think last year was the first year they carried them all (years before they only carried about half to 2/3), but you are right that this is not anything significantly new. They have been carrying live preseason games for a few years.

    My DVR is ready. Last year 1/2 was with the crew announcing for 1 market and the other half was with the crew from the other market, unless it was a national broadcast.

    To summarize just Patriot games in that article:
    Thursday, August 13 11:00 PM - New England Patriots at Philadelphia Eagles
    Thursday, August 20 11:00 PM - Cincinnati Bengals at New England Patriots
    Saturday, August 29 7:00 AM :)eek:) - New England Patriots at Washington Redskins
    Friday, September 4 4:00 PM - New York Giants at New England Patriots

    They used to show the games multiple times, but I guess now it's just one replay per game.

    It's always the same formula too, I believe the home team's broadcast in the first half and the away team's in the second. Personally I find this interesting because you get to hear little tidbits about the different teams and cities around the league that otherwise you don't.

    As a Pats fan I'm tempted to say it'd be nice to just do the Pats' crew the whole game, but with Randy Cross in the booth, you ain't missing much. ;)

    This may seem like exciting news, untill you once again realize how boring preseason is. Oh well, its new patriots football so its ok with me.

    Re: NFLN to carry all preseason games live???

    NFL Network is still doing multiple runs of preseason games. The listings on the website show just the initial first run of the game. From what I'm seeing on Zap2It.com it shows the following for the game against the Eagles:

    Thu 8/13 11:00 pm -2:00 am
    Fri 8/14 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
    Sun 8/16 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
    Thu 8/20 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    All times are EST.
