It's probably a bad 720p to 1080i conversion.

Watching NFLN via D* on a 50" 1080p display.
Edit: Saw a mention of ABC13.com during the broadcast, so it appears to be Houston's local ABC affiliate. Are they feeding NFLN 720p? Whatever is going on, it looks awful.

NO-Texans was god awful. For NFL network to try to sell that to fans as an HD broadcast was a joke.

MIN/SEA had the FSN graphics package, so I wonder if it was done by Root Sports Northwest, and if so, if they did it at 720p like they would do for their normal programming.

Who cares if it was bad. It was a preseason game! The game doesn't matter or count. I still don't understand why they even air preseason games or why anybody wants to watch them. Get over it.

Once again, the NFL Network DID NOT produce the game. It was a rebroadcast from a local TV station. Blame them for the lousy PQ.

Why is the NFL Network charging providers so much money and demanding to be carried on every package if they're not even paying for camera crews with HD cameras to cover these games?
