What to Watch this week in sports

Publish date:

SUNDAY: 11/23, FOX, 4:15 p.m. NFL: Giants at Cardinals The 9-1 Giants return to Phoenix Stadium -- the site of their stunning Super Bowl victory -- and square off against Kurt Warner and the high-flying Cardinals. With a win, Arizona would clinch the NFC West, but they'll have to do it against the league's highest-scoring offense and second-ranked defense.

THURSDAY: 11/20, TNT, 8:00 p.m. NBA: Pistons at Celtics Since his trade to the Pistons, Allen Iverson has taken over Detroit's offense and averaged a team-high 20.6 points and 6.1 assists per game. Detroit heads to Boston Thursday for a matchup with the world champion Celtics, who already own a 3 1/2-game lead in the Atlantic Division. Bad news for the Pistons: Kevin Garnett is back from his one-game suspension.

SATURDAY: 11/22, ABC, 8:00 p.m. CFB: Texas Tech at Oklahoma After knocking off No. 1 Texas and No. 8 Oklahoma State in back-to-back weeks, Texas Tech plays it's third consecutive "biggest game in its history" Saturday when it rolls into Norman to face the Sooners. The No. 2 Red Raiders can clinch their first Big 12 South Division title and take a huge step toward cementing a BCS berth, but Oklahoma averages an FBS-best 51.4 points per game.

SUNDAY: 11/23, CBS, 1:00 p.m. NFL: Jets at Titans Before the season kicked off, Kerry Collins and Brett Favre weren't supposed to be starting, let alone leading first-place teams. Favre, the NFL's all-time leader in passing yards, and the Jets head down to Tennessee where the Titans and the league's stingiest defense look to become the 13th team in league history to begin its season 11-0.

MONDAY: 11/24, Versus, 8:00 p.m. NHL: Capitals at Wild Alex Ovechkin continued to rack up points Wednesday with a one-goal, three-assist performance against Anaheim. The Caps should have Sergei Federov and their points leader, Alexander Semin, back from injuries by Monday when their high-scoring offense heads to Minnesota to take on Niklas Backstrom, who's allowing a measly 1.92 goals per game.
