Fox keeping its top crew focused on Packers
There’s plenty of interest in the undefeated Green Bay Packers and there will be plenty of exposure for them as the second half of the season cranks up.
Coming off the team’s only appearance of the season on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” the Packers are set for three straight games on Fox that will be handled by the network’s top crew of Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Pam Oliver, according to Bob Wolfley of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
That starts with the Packers’ game this Sunday at Lambeau Field against the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-5). Per the report, the game will be seen by 39 percent of the country.
Buck, Aikman and Oliver will then follow the Packers to Detroit for their Thanksgiving Day showdown with the Lions at Ford Field. They will then cover the game the following week at MetLife Stadium against the New York Giants. That game will not be flexed to prime time by NBC.
