During the NFL's four-week preseason, NFL Network will televise 52 games -- all but the 13 televised nationally by the NFL's four network partners (CBS, ESPN, FOX and NBC).
For most games, NFL Network will use the television feeds of local broadcasters and make use of both sets of announcers. For example, if Minnesota is playing at Pittsburgh, NFL Network will use the announcers from the Steelers (home team) for the first half, and then switch to the Vikings' (away team) crew for the second half.
In 2006, NFL Network will air 170 football games, including eight regular season NFL games and 52 preseason games, 75 game re-airs of NFL regular-season games, 31 NFL Europe League contests, the Insight Bowl, the Houston bowl game, the Senior Bowl and the All-American Classic.
NFL Network airs seven days a week, 24 hours a day on a year-round basis and is the first television network fully dedicated to the NFL and the sport of football. For more information, log on to www.nfl.com/nflnetwork/home.

The nfl network was out of sinc last night.
I was watching the rediculus""whip around" coverage and I knew it would be bad as the comentators are saying "this is the second possesion for the Titans" and the score on the bottom says 3-0.
