The CBS Television Network, home of Super Bowl XLIV, continues its Golden Anniversary 50th year broadcasting the NFL with THE NFL ON CBS on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26 (4:00 PM, ET) and Sunday, Nov. 29 (1:00-7:00 PM, ET) beginning with THE NFL TODAY, the Network’s studio show (3:30-4:00 PM, ET) and (12:00 NOON-1:00 PM, ET) respectively, live from THE NFL TODAY studio in New York City.
THE NFL TODAY previews its Thanksgiving Day game of the Oakland Raiders-Dallas Cowboys game by featuring Dallas’ DeMarcus Ware. Since the regular-season in 2007, Ware has led the NFL with 41 sacks. Last season, he led the league with a club record 20 sacks, and so far has seven sacks this season. But his on-field performance is only part of his season compared to the work he does off the field. Ware is very active in the NFL’s “Play 60” campaign which is focused on national youth health and fitness, whereby young fans are encouraged to be active for at least 60 minutes-a-day. On Wednesday, DeMarcus and his wife Taniqua will be gathering with a group of local kids from the Salvation Army and present them with their “Play 60” jerseys to wear on the field at the following day’s Cowboys game. Deb Gelman is the producer.
In addition, recording artist Daughtry will perform live during halftime of the Raiders-Cowboys game.
On THE NFL TODAY on Sunday, Nov. 29 (12:00 NOON, ET), “Dr. Cowher” goes into his lab and develops the ultimate quarterback by assembling parts taken from several current quarterbacks in the league. Among the parts and traits he is looking for are the best arm, head, courage and leadership skills. Jeff St. Arromand is the producer.
Plus, Victoria’s Secret Super Model Candice Swanepoel joins the guys live on the set to help them with their NFL picks.
