NFL Week # 15: Only 11 games on Sunday, 3 Saturday on NFL Network with bookends tonight and Monday

These folks have earned their praise and pay. Noah Eagle, Ian’s son, just a few years out of Syracuse will be doing an NFL game this week for NFL Network. Kenny Albert,  Marv’s son, is sharing more of his dissimilar humor. There are others too. The Carays have already played four generations, beginning with Harry in St. Louis in the late 1930s. Top of my head, the Bucks, the Garagiolas, the Alberts and many more. It just runs in some families more than others.  It’s all in the family: 40+ sports broadcasting families, Sons and brothers are chips off the old blocks

Fox has the single game and CBS the doubleheader this long NFL weekend. It’s funny. This weekend. Both Fox and CBS run five games Sunday afternoon. But CBS is labeled with the DH. Bottom line, there’s less stock or fewer games.

NFL Network gets deeper into the picture Saturday, distributing three telecasts, per below.
