It happens with college football too: Today, ABC had to start the
Nebraska-Indiana game on ESPN2 and the North Carolina-Miami game on ESPNU
because the NC State-Clemson game went into OT.
With the NFL, the networks are required to show the home team's game in its
entirety. However they can stick with a late-running game elsewhere- and
i've seen both FOX and CBS give a overtime finish priority over the start
of the second game- CBS gave Cleveland at Miami priority a few weeks ago
over the start of Pittsburgh at Philadelphia, and FOX did the same thing
with the Oakland at New Orleans game in the first week over New York Giants
