SAN JOSE, Calif. — The Super Bowl circus known as Media Day is hitting prime time.
Now known as "Super Bowl Opening Night," the free-for-all with the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos will last one hour with each team on Monday night.
Players and the head coach from each team will face hundreds of international journalists at SAP Center, along with the usual contingent of oddballs looking for a quick moment of fame.
The NFL moved the supersized press conference to Monday night from its usual Tuesday daytime slot to give more fans a chance to watch live on cable. The NFL Network and ESPN2 are expected to air live coverage.
The other big TV news event Monday night: the Iowa caucuses, where Democrats and Republicans running for presidents face voters for the first time after more than a year of campaigning.
