“THE NFL TODAY” IN SHOT-GUN FORMATION TO DISCUSS QUARTERBACK SITUATIONS IN DENVER AND OAKLAND FOR WEEK 7 OF “THE NFL TODAY” ON SUNDAY, OCT. 23
THE NFL ON CBS, broadcasting its 52nd year of the NFL, continues its 2011 NFL season on Sunday, Oct. 23 (1:00-7:00 PM, ET) with THE NFL TODAY (12:00 Noon-1:00 PM, ET).
Two weeks ago Denver quarterback Kyle Orton was benched at halftime of their game against San Diego. Controversial first-round draft pick Tim Tebow came in and nearly pulled off a 16-point fourth-quarter comeback. This Sunday, Tebow makes his first start of the season when Denver (1-4) faces the winless Miami Dolphins. THE NFL TODAY previews the match-up as the game becomes another opportunity for Tebow to show he can play in the NFL, as well as for Denver to find out if he is the long-term answer at quarterback and can re-energize the franchise. Deb Gelman is the producer.
In addition, THE NFL ON CBS’s Dan Fouts, who calls the Kansas City-Oakland game, will report live from Oakland on the other big quarterback news of the week with the latest on the Carson Palmer situation.
James Brown hosts THE NFL TODAY along with analysts Dan Marino, Boomer Esiason, Shannon Sharpe and Bill Cowher, NFL TODAY “General Manager” Charley Casserly, as well as Lesley Visser reporting.
