NFL Explains Moving Patriots Game To Late Window, Keeping Texans In Early Slot

WAITING ALL WEEK: In California, Jim Carlisle writes since "SNF" made its debut on NBC in '06, the NFL has "spoiled it as if it were an only child." The league has "given NBC all the prime-time perks and privileges it never gave ABC when it had 'Monday Night Football.'" The NFL "makes sure NBC has a dynamite matchup each week." The net has to "be very happy with the arrangement it has with the NFL." Fox and CBS are "generally happy too, but right around Christmastime each year, they often do some teeth-gnashing about their situation" (VENTURA COUNTY STAR, 12/28).
