Super Bowl Sunday TV Day Planner - NFL Network


What we as fans must remember about watching television on Super Bowl Sunday this is a marathon and not a sprint so pace yourself, this will be a long day. Also, it is important to remember that Fox, ESPN, NFL Network and all involved in pre-game programming understand that for many people in the audience todays Super Bowl Game is the only football they have seen all year. These are the casual fans, and the networks need to gear their programming to add features that can reach a mass audience.

There will be plenty of the hardcore Xs and Os stuff that the hardcore fan wants but it up to show where to find it. So, as I have done for the past seven years here is my annual Day Planner, a guide to finding what to watch and where on Super Bowl Sunday.

NFL Network starts things off at 7 a.m. ET - NFL GameDay First - The start of 8.5 hours of pre-game programming on the network.

Look for Sterling Sharpe, Shaun OHara and Brian Billick to use their two hour block to breakdown the game with some key features right off the top. From 7 am to 9 am here is what you will see in order.

  • What will be the Broncos game plan on offense?
  • Who will be Broncos quarterbackPeyton Manningsgo-to guy?
  • How will the Broncos attack Seahawks cornerbackRichard Sherman

Then from the Seattle side you will get the following.

  • How will the Broncos defend Seahawks quarterbackRussell Wilson?
  • WillRussell Wilsonwithstand the pressure of playing in theSuperBowlin just his second year in the NFL?
  • How will the Seahawks wide receivers attack the Broncos secondary?

At 9 a.m. on NFL Network it will be the Super Bowl edition of GameDay Morning.

  • Rich Eisen,Steve Mariucci,Marshall Faulk,Kurt Warner,Warren Sapp&Michael Irvin MetLife Stadium main set

They will have over a dozen reporters all around the area reporting on a number of things. Here are the highlights.
