Last weekend’s most entertaining Wild Card playoff game – Arizona’s thrilling 51-45 win over Green Bay – was on FOX’s air and was broadcast by the network’s #1 team, which consists of play-by-play man Joe Buck, analyst Troy Aikman and sideline reporters Pam Oliver and Chris Myers.
This weekend, the victorious Cardinals travel to New Orleans for a Divisional Round showdown against the Saints. But FOX’s #1 team won’t be following the Cardinals from Arizona to New Orleans.
Instead, the team of Buck, Aikman and Oliver/Myers will be in Minnesota to broadcast the Vikings-Cowboys game from Mall of America Field on Sunday.
At first glance some of you may not be excited to know that Aikman, a 3-time Super Bowl-winning QB for the Cowboys during the 1990s, will be calling a Cowboys vs. Vikings game. But I’ve enjoyed Aikman’s work over the past several seasons and I’ve never noticed a bias – either negatively or positively – from him with regard to the Cowboys.
And it might be interesting to see if Oliver has anything interesting to offer while covering the Vikings this weekend. Earlier in the season, she did this piece for FOX’s Sunday pregame show with Vikings TE Visanthe Shiancoe and WRs Bernard Berrian, Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice.
