The NFL is king when it comes to sports. Even with baseball coming down the stretch, the start of the NFL season is the day’s headliner.

With the Cubs sitting in rain delay, and soon to be postponed, Cubs television play-by-play broadcaster Len Kasper couldn’t help but take in a little football.

Michelle Tafoya is the sideline reporter for the NBC broadcast crew.

The NFL season kicked off Thursday evening with the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road playing defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.

The Cubs game was postponed for the night in Philadelphia. Instead, they will play a doubleheader Friday against the Phillies.
