NFL Net Airs Favre’s Jets Debut Wide

NFL Network plans to televise Brett Favre’s first preseason game as a New York Jet nationally on Saturday, the network said.

The network will be picking up the local feed of the game between the Jets and the Washington Redskins. The local feed will be broadcast in New York and Washington, but football fans in other parts of the country will be able to see the future Hall of Famer go back to work if their cable or satellite company carries NFL Network.

“This is exactly what NFL Network was built for," said Charles Coplin, NFL Network VP of programming. "Fans across the across the country now have a chance to watch all of Brett Favre's preseason action beginning with his debut live this Saturday night."
