Even with the NHL season on hiatus, we are officially entering the busy portion of the sports year. The MLB playoffs have begun, the football season is approaching the midway point, and the NBA preseason is underway. With so much going on, it can be difficult to keep track of everything worth watching. Here’s your Sunday guide to TV.
All times Eastern.
NFL Regular Season
Indianapolis Colts at New York Jets – 1:00pm, CBS
If you’re not interested in seeing how bad Mark Sanchez plays today, you aren’t a football fan.
New York Giants at San Francisco 49ers – 4:25pm, FOX
Yep, I just jumped to the 4:25pm games. Not a whole lot going on at 1:00pm today, unfortunately. That is, unless you’re into Chiefs-Bucs or Eagles-Lions. I didn’t think so. Anyway, with the Giants at 3-2 and 49ers at 4-1, this should be today’s best game. Of course, now that I say that, someone will probably forget to show up.
Minnesota Vikings at Washington Redskins – 4:25pm, FOX
Can the Vikings continue their winning ways? Will the Redskins kill RGIII by stupidly having him play with a concussion?
Green Bay Packers at Houston Texans – 8:20pm, NBC
The Texans are 5-0, the Packers are 2-3 and still trying to get back on track. That not doing it for you? Well, it’s Sunday night football. You don’t have a lot of other options, do you?
Detroit Tigers at New York Yankees, Game 2 – 4:00pm, TBS
Because having playoff games on back-to-back days (or, in the Yankees case, back-to-back-to-back days) makes total sense. It’s fun for the fans to have games to watch every day, but I’m sure we’d all trade that in to have a healthy Derek Jeter for the rest of the postseason.
St. Louis Cardinals at San Francisco Giants, Game 1 – 8:00pm, TBS
Can the Cardinals build on the momentum from eliminating the Nationals? Or will the Giants make a legit bid at going undefeated this postseason after sweeping the Cincinnati Reds in the first round?
San Antonio Spurs at Houston Rockets – 2:00pm, NBATV
Just in case you really want to watch basketball today. Or if you really just want to see Jeremy Lin in a Rockets uniform. His knee is apparently still hurting, though, so who knows if he’ll actually see limited playing time.
