recorded bengals vikings changed in the middle of the game

I set up to record the Bengals/Vikings game this morning. As I was watching it switched to the Saints/Jets game. The same thing happened last week on CBS. Is this a problem with CBS or with Comcast?

It's your local CBS affiliate. When games are blowouts, they'll switch to a different game.

Except in the home market of one of the two teams.

We were watching the game live here in the Twin Cities. I was away from the tv for a minute or two. Came back and found the Saints / Jets game on. It took another minute or two before our local CBS channel got the Vikings game back on. A CBS network snafu. I thought the Comcast box switched me to the Fox channel, until I found out I was still on CBS channel.
