NFL NetworkYour National Football League is still feeling festive and gives us an extra present on Boxing Day. A simulcast of the New England Patriots vs. the New York football Giants game as the Patriots quest for a season of perfection.

Previously the game was only to air on the NFL Network which currently doesn't wind up being available in about two thirds of the homes in the United States. The game will now be simulcast on not just one, but two broadcast networks this Saturday night: CBS and NBC will both show the game. I'm really looking forward to the cumulative viewing numbers for the game but am not very optimistic the Giants will actually make a game of it. Nonetheless it will be the first three network simulcast in NFL History. It's been almost 41 years since the last time two broadcast networks simulcast a game, Super Bowl I in January 1967, also featuring CBS and NBC.

    Technically, the first Super Bowl was not a simulcast. NBC and CBS used different announcers, directors and cameras.
