The NFL is not going to feature football for 14 hours on certain Sundays anymore. According to a report from Joe Flint of the Wall Street Journal, the league is going to get rid of games in the early-morning in London.
The report states, “Starting next season, games played in London will air in the afternoon in the United States along with the rest of the games, a person with knowledge of the matter said.”
Nothing has been said regarding the true reason for this change, but ProFootballTalk reports indicate that it has to do with the lack of interest from fans. And if that’s not the case, it may be the result of a lot of people not being awake at that time of day. Odds are the entire west and mountain time zones are still asleep while these games are taking place, meaning the NFL is missing out on a big piece of its potential viewing audience.
Jeremiah Delgado is a fan of the Jets, Yankees and Knicks. He doubts he will, but hopes to live long enough to see the Jets or the Knicks win a championship.
