“THE NFL TODAY’s” SHANNON SHARPE PREVIEWS DENVER-OAKLAND GAME BY SITTING DOWN WITH NEWLY-ACQUIRED RAIDERS QUARTERBACK CARSON PALMER FOR WEEK 9 OF “THE NFL TODAY” ON SUNDAY, NOV. 6
THE NFL ON CBS, broadcasting its 52nd year of the NFL, continues its 2011 NFL season on Sunday, Nov. 6 (1:00-7:00 PM, ET) with THE NFL TODAY (12:00 Noon-1:00 PM, ET).
THE NFL TODAY’s Shannon Sharpe previews the Denver Broncos-Oakland Raiders game by sitting down with newly-acquired Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer to find out where he is in terms of preparation and if he feels he is ready to lead his new team to the playoffs.
After spending eight seasons with Cincinnati, Palmer said he was retired. He would no longer play for the Bengals. On October 18, right at the NFL trade deadline, he was sent to the Oakland Raiders. Just five days later, he made his debut in the second half against Kansas City and threw three interceptions. Following a Raiders bye in Week 8, Palmer has had two weeks to prepare for his first start as a Raider this Sunday against division rival Denver. The Raiders are 4-3 and tied with Kansas City and San Diego for the AFC West division lead. Jeff St. Arromand is the producer.
James Brown hosts THE NFL TODAY along with analysts Dan Marino, Boomer Esiason, Sharpe and Bill Cowher, NFL TODAY “General Manager” Charley Casserly, as well as Lesley Visser reporting.
