As VERSUS continues to beef up its programming in significant ways, one of the biggest additions will be unveiled Thursday night.
NFL Turning Point, a joint production of NBC Sports and NFL Network, debuts at 10:00 p.m. ET.
John Ourand of SportsBusiness Daily reports that the show will be hosted by Dan Patrick, and that the venture will include segments with Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison of Football Night in America.
Per Ourand, the debut will include footage from the Cowboys-Jets game, during which cornerback Darrelle Revis a/k/a Tony Romo’s Clutch-Time Primary Receiver was wearing a microphone. Also included will be clips from the 49ers-Seahawks game, during which new coach Jim Harbaugh was miked up. (So much for the national media ignoring the Niners.)
The show also will have an in-depth feature on Eagles quarterback Mike Vick, who returns to Atlanta on Sunday night to face the Falcons.
It should quickly becoming appointment viewing for NFL fans.
