The NFL has announced that Saturday night's Patriots-Giants game will be simulcast on both NBC and CBS as well as on NFL Network.
Originally, the game was scheduled to be shown only on NFL Network, which is available to fewer than 40 percent of the nation's homes with TVs.
Only the Giants stand in the way of the Patriots becoming the first NFL team to go 16-and-0 in the regular season.
The simulcast of the NFL Network feed is a major concession by league officials, who repeatedly said they would not show the game anywhere but on their network. But the NFL has faced mounting pressure from politicians in recent weeks to make the game available to more viewers.
This will be the first three-network simulcast in NFL history and the first simulcast of any kind of an NFL game since the first Super Bowl in 1967.
