Every year, millions of fans across the country watch NFL slate games on Thanksgiving Day.
Between the first bowl of turkey and savoring the rich, delicious aromas of the famous desserts that float around the house, there’s nothing quite like eating home-cooked meals while enjoying all the big moments of a football match. However, during the height of the Bills-Lions game on Thursday afternoon, some viewers in Texas couldn’t get enough of the suspense.
Tyler Bass kicked a 45-yard field goal in the closing seconds to give Buffalo their second Detroit win of the week – as the Bills rebounded from back-to-back losses – and a half-game lead over the AFC East-topping Dolphins. But viewers watching the game on CBS’s KHOU in Houston missed the last 23 seconds of the contest.
KHOU meteorologist Tim Bandagis cut short the game broadcast to inform viewers of severe weather that included a tornado warning in the Houston area. The station did not include picture-in-picture processing or a split-screen format to allow viewers to continue watching the game while a weather report was issued.
As a result, some viewers, many of whom had watched the entire game up to that point, were upset. Meanwhile, Bandaggis saw complaints on social media and gave his opinion on the case.
“I apologize guys, but I have a responsibility to be on the air and stay on the air for the duration of the hurricane warning,” chirp.
