With the Giants and Vikings game now moved from Sunday afternoon to Monday night, that opens up a lot of questions about TV, where to watch the game, etc. At least most of those questions have been answered:â†µ
Giants-Vikings will be played Monday night at 8:00 PM ET on FOX 5 in the New York metropolitan area. The game will also air on the FOX affiliate in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area, according to Nancy Gay of FOXSports.com. It is unknown exactly how many affiliates (Philadelphia? Upstate?) will receive the game, or if a national network or NFL Sunday Ticket will pick up the game. For now, however, if you live in this area, you’ll be able to see the game.â†µ
Great news for Brett Favre, who gets another day to rest his weary body and attempt to keep his starting streak alive. Bad news for the Giants, who now have one less day to prepare for the Eagles next weekend in a game that will have major implications on the NFC East.â†µ
The biggest loser in all of those? The American Country Awards, which will be broadcast live on FOX in every other market and now miss out on the precious, precious NYC market. Then again, I guess it depends who you'd rather spend the night with...Trace Adkins or Brett Favre.
