NBC has chosen Brett Favre over Tom Brady, reports B&C.
On Sunday, Dec. 6, the NFL has exercised its option to choose which game to air in NBC’s primetime slot based on its flex schedule, and the Minnesota Vikings vs. the Arizona Cardinals won out over the New England Patriots vs. the Miami Dolphins. The Pats-Dolphins game will now air on CBS at 1 p.m. instead.
The NFL has had this option for three weeks, but this is the first time it’s been used.
