A Central New York television audience will not see Eli Manning take the field today against the Oakland Raiders regardless of whether the Super Bowl XLII MVP plays or not. The New York Giants expect their franchise gunslinger to start, but the game will not be shown to non-Direct TV subscribers in Syracuse. That's because the most annoying franchise in sports Buffalo Bills are hosting Cleveland at the same time. 

The Giants, who normally play on FOX as a member of the NFC, are playing host to an AFC team. Whenever an interconference game takes place, the road team's network takes the coverage. That means the Giants and the Bills are both on CBS with 1 p.m. kickoffs.
