NBC Dumps Colts/Pats in Week 13


The winless Colts have had their last remaining Sunday Night Football appearance removed from the schedule.

NBC will no longer televise the Week 13 Colts/Patriots game, the NFL announced on Tuesday. A replacement game will be announced by November 22.

The Colts have made two appearances on ‘SNF’ this season, the most recent being a 62-7 loss at the hand of the Saints October 23. That game, which aired opposite Game 4 of the World Series, drew a 7.6 rating and fewer than 12.5 million viewers — the lowest rated and least-viewed NFL regular season game on NBC since 2008.

Colts/Patriots will now air at 1 PM ET on CBS.

The Colts have been without star quarterback Peyton Manning for the entire season.

    Seems like a good chance for NBC to add Steelers (always a good number)
