Watching Thursday's Game

New, comments

Despite being an AFC matchup, Thursday's tilt between your Houston Texans and the Denver Broncos will not air on CBS.  Instead, it's scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. CST on the NFL Network.  The dispute between the NFL and cable providers has been well documented elsewhere, so I'm not going to go into it here.

Here's the good news--if you live in the Houston and don't get the NFL Network, you'll still be able to watch the game on KTXH (Ch. 20) thanks to a league rule that all games shown on cable must also be broadcast on on an "over-the-air" station in each participating team's home market.  In other words, this is the other side of the coin for Houston getting hosed on New England-Indianapolis earlier this year.  

Now, if you don't live in Houston (or Denver) and don't have the NFL Network, this thread is for you.  If you're headed to a bar, restaurant, or something of that ilk that you know will be broadcasting the DEN-HOU game, feel free to share that knowledge (like Solis did here for San Antonio-area fans in connection with last week's game and BigTexBD mentioned here for Austin-area fans for Thursday night's game).  There's no reason any Texans fan should be deprived of watching Super Mario break the ten (10) sack barrier for the first time in his career.
