NBC Sports to stream both NFL wild card games; feature special social media analyst

StoryFor the third consecutive season, NBC Sports will stream Saturday’s Chiefs – Colts and Saints – Eagles wild card games via its ‘NBC Sports Live Extra’ desktop and tablet product. The stream will include additional camera angles and interactive features, along with unique digital content and social media extensions.

On Saturday @SNFonNBC will heavily promote a guest player who will be live tweeting the Saints –Eagles game on NBC. Steve Gleason (@TeamGleason), who as a special teams player for the Saints famously blocked a punt early in the team’s first game back at the Superdome after Hurricane Katrina will serve as the guest tweeter.

Incredibly, Gleason, who had to retired because of his battle against Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), will be tweeting the game with his eyes, using eye-tracking technology to type.

In advance of Saturday’s game, the Saints produced the above Vine to promote how this will work.
