Tonight’s third preseason game will be broadcast on the Patriots Preseason Television Network, meaning we get another dose of the dynamic duo of Don Criqui and Randy Cross. Aren’t you excited?
OK, maybe we’re excited by the game, but not with the announcers. Since the Krafts put a lot of pride into their operation, I’m hoping that they can consider bringing in some new announcers for next preseason. Watching a lot of the preseason games from around the league on the NFL Network, I see that other teams lure some of the bigger names to call their preseason games, and I’m hoping that the Patriots can do better. On the CBS NFL broadcasting depth chart, Criqui is on the seventh broadcast team (out of eight) and Cross is on the eighth team.
Scott Zolak will again be the sideline reporter.
If you miss the game tonight, or are living outside of the coverage area of the Patriots Preseason Network, you’ll have three chances to watch the game on the NFL Network, the first one being tonight at 11:00PM.
