Saints News, 4/22/14: NFL Playoff Game to Air on Cable For 1st Time

Ronald Martinez

According to the Associate Press, the NFL said today that a wild-card matchup will be broadcast on ESPN in January. As with "Monday Night Football," the game will be simulcast on local channels in the teams' home markets. In the NFL's new TV deals that start with the 2014 season, NBC exchanged one of its wild-card matchups for one in the divisional round. It hasn't been determined yet whether NBC will show an AFC or NFC game in January.
