Once again, we’re not contractually obligated to promote the sporting events broadcast by NBC. But, once again, we’ll do it anyway.
As our pal Joe Gesue from NBC’s Football Night In America production team points out, Saturday’s wild-card doubleheader on NBC involves a pair of history-making matchups.
The fact that only four guys have ever thrown for 5,000 yards — with that club expanding by two in the past three days — makes that one a little less shocking. Still, it’ll be the first time two 5,000-yard passers have ever gotten together, and whether or not it’s on NBC, it’ll be the game to watch this weekend.
