NFL Network question

I have a question about the NFL cable/satelite network. During the NFL season, does this network run full length games? Do they air Sunday's games on Monday-Thursday, or can you choose on Sunday from all of the games that are playing?

I am a Browns fan that lives in Lexington Ky. I only got to watch six games last season because the local stations usually carry the Bengals or the Colts. It is very frustrating. Can the NFL network be my solution?

They didn't last season, your only solution would be DirecTV and the NFL Sunday Ticket.

The answer is no. The NFL network does not broadcast regular season games. I believe they broadcasted preseason games last year.

If you don't have Direct TV and the Sunday Ticket Package in your area, you are shit out of luck.

Edit - Beaten to the punch. What he said above.

Thanks for the replies. I could get the Direct tv package, but was hoping for something a little less expensive. NFL network is offered through my cable company.

The closest thing to an actual game that they have during the season is the "Game of the Week", even though they pick two different games to cover. But, that's an NFL Films production and only lasts an hour. It's cool to watch for the sideline perspective, though.

Don't they show NFL Europe Games?

BTW, That was a good Champsionship game. Right down to the last play.
Adminals held on to beat the Thunder 27-21.

LB: Yes, they show NFL Europe games. Usually show two of the three games per week with at least one of those LIVE. Then they replay those 2-3 times each in the days after-usually back to back. I don't think they replay the games that FOX televises except for the WorldBowl. (Which thanks to the replay, I was able to get a tape of it. I messed up the LIVE showing on FOX.)

I know they showed NFL pre-season games last season but since I didn't get NFL Network until this January, I dunno how they showed them. (LIVE, Same Day Tape Delay etc)
