The NFL and Masters on the same day? Only in 2020.
Sunday’s TV schedule is going to look a bit different. With CBS televising the final round of the Masters starting at 10 a.m., the network won’t be televising any NFL games at 1 p.m. All of the 1 p.m. games will be on FOX.
CBS will have three games during the 4 p.m. window. Capital Region fans will get to see the Buffalo Bills take on the Arizona Cardinals on CBS6 (WRGB).
My focus will be on the 1 p.m. game between my Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants. The last time they met, the Eagles rallied for a 22-21 win on Oct. 22, but the game is best remembered for Giants quarterback Daniel Jones rumblin’ and stumblin’ on an 80-yard run that should have been a touchdown had the turf monsters not tripped him up.
The Giants are playing better. The Eagles needed the bye week after their lackluster win over the Cowboys on Nov. 1. I hope quarterback Carson Wentz spent the bye week contemplating his poor first half and that he gets better in the second half of the season. The Eagles can take control of the awful NFC East with a win over the Giants.
Speaking of winning, I gained two games on Gazette news columnist Sara Foss in Week 9. I was 10-4 to improve to 88-44-1. Sara was 8-6 to go to 90-42-1.
