    NEW YORK -- The NFL has offered one free week of its network programming to two cable TV operators who don't carry the channel, and one will show the Texas Bowl between Rutgers and Kansas State.

    Cablevision will broadcast the NFL Network only for the Dec. 28 bowl game, showing all pre- and post-game coverage.

    Commissioner Roger Goodell told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the week of Dec. 24-30 would be offered as a "free view" for customers of Cablevision and Time Warner Cable, two of the nation's largest cable carriers. The NFL Network would be offered on the expanded basic levels of the two carriers.

    Time Warner had yet to decide its plans.
