By Pat McDonoughAs the Super Bowl approaches, fans in the New Jersey market can expect a few more marquee matchups, and that means there will be a few bigger pay-per-view events in the state as well.
According to data compiled by the New York Times, New Jersey will be hosting seven events on the Superbowl weekend: two on CBS Sports Live and two on ESPN’s Total Access, which airs the games on CBS.
The New York City-based sports network has also announced that the New Orleans Saints and Buffalo Bills will battle in the NFC championship game.
While CBS Sports has a number of Super Bowls scheduled for New Jersey in 2017, the league will hold the game in 2018.
While ESPN’s Super Sunday series in 2017 was limited to one Super Bowl game, this year will feature seven events.
The other Super Bowl event on ESPN in New Jersey is a five-hour “Pledge for Action” with “Pete Rose, Joe Namath, Jim Harbaugh and Dan Marino” to raise money for charity, according to the Times.
The Super Bowl is set to be played on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2018, and the CBS Sports live broadcast begins at 9:30 a.m. ET.
