NFL Decides Not To Flex Patriots-Broncos Game To Sunday Night Slot

YOU BELONG IN THE CITY: ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky reported some a spot used during ESPN's "Monday Night Countdown" prior to Chargers-Jaguars Monday night this week included "one of the Charlotte skyline and at least one scenic shot of Jacksonville that was outdated." An ESPN spokesperson said, "The Charlotte aerial was an inadvertent mistake. It should not have aired. We apologize that it was part of the telecast. The scenics of Jacksonville that were used during 'Monday Night Countdown' were shot the night of the previous MNF game there in late October. We did not have a crew shooting scenics Monday. There were no graphic or audio mentions indicating the shot was live, though we understand viewers may have been under this assumption” (ESPN.com, 12/6).
