I could be wrong about this, but I don't think the NFL is directly in the broadcasting business or in the business of producing the telecasts. I think that is done by the broadcast networks.

I think they will be showing some Conference USA teams, so maybe ECU fans will be interested in that. But I'm wondering how much the station is trying to appeal to transplants from the Northeast.
