For the dwindling viewers without cable or satellite, WPIX/Channel 11 is the over-the-air option for Jets fans.

The 8 p.m. game features NFL Network announcers Brad Nessler and Mike Mayock.

Ahead of the broadcast, WPIX offers unique programming–a 60-minute pre-game show, PIX11: Countdown to Kick-Off.

WPIX, short on a sports staff, has reporter Mario Diaz joining former Jets linebacker Chad Cascadden from the Channel 11 studios. Dyrol Joyner will be live from Denver. The pre-game show also includes Monica Morales with Fireman Ed and Jet faithful at Bowlmore Lanes in Times Square.

Additionally, the audience is invited to live tweet during the special using #PIX11Pregame for a chance to have the tweet posted on air.

Post-game reaction will take place during a late edition of PIX News at Ten with Jodi Applegate.
