Those planning to watch today’s AFC East battle between the New York Jets and New England Patriots have already had themselves a few obstacles to deal with.
First, it was reported that the game was going to be delayed for at least 10 minutes as a result of a power outage in Foxborough around Gillette Stadium. But that’s not all.
The crew was eventually able to get things going, but not fully, as CBS is only able to use a single camera angle for the broadcast. And there will also be no replays until they get things fix—if that even happend.
UPDATE: It appears as though the power has been fully restored and all camera angles are working again in Foxborough. That should also mean instant replay can be used once again.
This battle between the Jets and Patriots is a rematch of their week 8 battle at MetLife Stadium, which saw New England gut out a 22-17 win. Despite that result, the Jets still enter this game with the better record at 6-3, compared to the Patriots’ 5-4.
