Giants-Bucs probably will be played Sunday
Contrary to what I heard on the radio this week . . .
It is my understanding there is a very good chance the Giants will visit the Bucs at 1 p.m. Sunday, not at 8 p.m. Saturday.
As long as the Steelers host the Jaguars or Browns, that is the game the NFL and NBC probably will tab for prime time. (If the Steelers meet the Titans, the Giants likely will be the Saturday night game.)
None of this is for certain, but it figures to be better for ratings to have rabid Steelers fans freeze their prime time tushes off in a telegenic fashion than to do something nutty like stage a night game in early January someplace warm such as Tampa.
(UPDATE SUNDAY NIGHT: Sure, I could gloat. But that would be unseemly.)
