HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Connecticut’s attorney general wants football fans in his state to be able to watch the game between the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants.
Richard Blumenthal has sent a letter Monday to the NFL asking it to lift a blackout of the game in Connecticut, which he says should be considered part of the Giants’ home market.
The game was postponed from Sunday and moved to Detroit after snow collapsed the roof of the Metrodome in Minneapolis.
It is being shown on Fox affiliates in New York City and Minneapolis, as well as Mankato and Rochester in Minnesota, and Albany in New York. The game will start at 7:20 p.m.
NFL spokesman Dan Masonson says the league could not get ESPN and Fox to agree to modify their contractual rights and make the game more broadly available.
