It's not exactly the same as watching the actual game, but it seems NFL.com is going to do the best it can to make sure you're up to date during the contest. If you have an internet connection you can head to league's website tonight for what they're billing as the "the first widely available Live Online and Wireless Video NFL Game Coverage in U.S.".
Confused? I am too, but here are the details from what I can gather. NFL.com will feature a live studio show during the game consisting of Derrin Horton, Jamie Dukes, and Rod Woodson. They will show video highlights, answer questions from the readers, but most importantly...provide live Look-Ins during the contest.
The Look-Ins will come at :15 and :45 past each hour and occasionally when a team reaches the Red Zone. While it's not exactly the same as viewing the game in its entirety, it's definitely a great gesture for NFL-N to provide this to fans of both teams.
Other Features Of The Online Telecast:
- Live Stats
- A "Call The Play" Feature where you can guess the plays of each team
- Live-Blogging from NFL-N Experts On-site
- Information on how to get the NFL Network from you Cable Provider
While this seems like a great idea, I hope this doesn't turn into just one giant add for NFL Network. You can access all of the NFL-N fun at NFL.com/Live at around 8pm.
