NOT GETTING ON THE GRIDIRON: The NFL is seeking a digital company to distribute one '15 regular-season game via an over-the-top platform, but Facebook is not one of the companies that will be making a bid. The social media company has seen a lot of video growth on its network and is prepared to live stream some events. But Reed said, “We wouldn’t be bidding for that.” The NFL has had meetings with companies like Google, YouTube and Yahoo to distribute the game, which also will be carried on broadcast stations in both teams’ home markets. The league has not announced which game will be made available, but sources say it is likely to be one of the three London games. The Bills-Jaguars game on Oct. 25 is the best bet, sources said.
