The article focuses on several television (TV) programs based on sports in the U.S. The playoff chase on TV is loaded with teams that have been out of contention for a long time. The football team Green Bay Packers alone--currently playing for a spot in the Reggie Bush Bowl--appear on national TV three times in the season's final four weeks. America gets to say goodbye to MNF by watching the football team New York Jets score 3 points against the New England Patriots.
