The Patriots wrap up their preseason schedule tonight at 7:00PM with their annual matchup with the New York Giants. This game will be held in the brand-new Meadowlands Stadium.
The game can be seen on the Patriots 2010 Preseason Television Network and also to a national audience on the NFL Network.
Veteran CBS broadcaster Don Criqui provides play-by-play and is joined by three-time NFL Pro Bowler and CBS analyst Randy Cross. Steve Burton will serve as the sideline reporter, while former Patriots QB Scott Zolak will serve as an on-field analyst.
If you miss tonight’s telecast, it appears that it will only be rebroadcast once – Sunday morning (September 5th) at 7:00AM on the NFL Network.
Game To Be Shown In 3D To Verizon FiOS Customers With 3D Sets
Verizon’s local FiOS TV customers will be able to watch the game between the Patriots and Giants in 3D, provided that they have a 3D TV. It will be the first NFL game broadcast in 3D. “This is the next major step in our development of 3D experiences for our FiOS TV customers,” said Terry Denson, vice president of content strategy and acquisition for Verizon. “Broadcasting the first 3D NFL game delivers on our promise to FiOS customers to provide superior TV offering, including 3D, HD and VOD programming, as well as interactivity that cable can’t match.” Since only a small number of customers own 3D TV sets, Verizon is setting up events for fans to watch the game on a 3D TV.
