On this first Sunday of the NFL season, I have already DVR’d NFL Gameday This Morning, Fox NFL Sunday and plan to DVR Football Night in America.
In addition, thanks to DirecTV, I have the Red Zone Channel with Andrew Siciliano as the more than capable host and DirecTV Supercast which has improved greatly from last season enabling me to watch games online. I’m in football heaven.
