I seem to remember reading that the NFL's contract with ESPN allows ESPN
games to be broadcast on local television in the home markets of the team's
involved.  If my memory is correct, that would allow the game to be
broadcast in Boston, but not Springfield.  In Maine, the game is only
available on ESPN.
