    Interesting points from over here: The NFL didn’t have a TV deal in place for the UK until about 3pm this afternoon.

    And the Sunday 1pm / 4pm EST games shown on TV here, you can’t watch for 6 days on Game Pass – There’s a chance I will btch about this more during the season.

    This should be a great grudge match, even though the Bronco’s don’t have Tebow anymore. I am sure that if he was still the QB there would be more talk about how this is a revenge game for the Steelers. Unfortunately I won’t be able to watch it live because I work late on Sunday’s at Dish. I do have my Hopper set to record all of today’s games on its huge hard drive. I missed so much of the season last year working on Sundays. I wish I had known about some of these options then. Watching the recordings is good too, and I can even skip the commercials and down time. I just have to make sure not to run into any spoilers before I get home.
