    I swear I saw last night that the game was at noon.
    (I thought it was 3:15, but then I saw that last night and was happy)
    Then I woke up early today all excited for the game.
    Got dressed, grabbed some coffee, started setting my TiVo, and I saw that it was at 3:15.
    I feel like I am going to be waiting forever now!
    And it is not like an evening game when you can make dinner and watch it too.
    i don't really want to watch the Packer's game that they are showing either.
    I wish they had a game that mattered in our playoff race, like the detroit game, or philly.

    Very annoying...could be worse. Look at what we get in NY today...early games Giants v Eagles (not bad)and Packers v Raiders (who cares?); Jets v Browns (ditto who cares?) and no Fox game. Really bites.
    >
    Giants-Eagles is your FOX game.
    This is a CBS double-header Sunday, so you'll only get one FOX game.

    =Z=
    Yeah, looks like I'll be going to the bar again today...which isn't all bad.

    I hate when it gets dark early, but I have no problem with the late games

    The Vikings game is NOT at 3:15 - it is at 3:05.
    You'll miss the first 10 minutes if you wait until 3:15!!
    Maybe locally at 3:05. But nationally they won't show it until the first game is over. Sometimes you miss the first 10 minutes anyway. That to me is the most annoying thing about a late game.
    I have Sunday ticket but it doesn't matter because it just picks up the same national feed.
    Just hope the first game doesn't go into overtime.
    No, I'm sorry, but that's incorrect.

    The game started at 3:05pm CST - ALL stations that were broadcasting it saw the start of the game.
    Yesterday was NOT a FOX doubleheader Sunday, so there was no early game to cause an overrun - that's why the game started at 3:05 and not 3:15.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Sunday Ticket used the same station for both the Eagles/Giants and the Vikings/49ers, and the Eagles went on a few long drives at the end of the 4th quarter and the game ran a little long. We definitely missed the first TD because the Eagles were still on and they hadn't switched to the Vikes.

    I was fortunate to get it from the beginning.

    Well - that's Sunday Ticket's (DirectTV's) issue, not FOX's.

    Re: 3:15 games

    You're all wrong, the game is at 4:15 (or 4:05 last week). Silly central time zone people.
