A television coverage map is included to see what games are available on FOX and CBS HERE.
Tennessee Titans at New York Giants
The main early day broadcast for CBS is the Titans and Giants. This broadcast will be announced by Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf. This game will be shown throughout the entire western and Midwest portion of the United States. This telecast may also be seen in various eastern US markets like parts of Virginia, Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Southeastern New York. Southeastern markets like Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Southeastern Florida may also broadcast this game.
Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots
Despite the predictability of this contest, Buffalo at New England is the 2nd regional game this week. New York Giants fans throughout northern and western New York will be dismayed to hear that they’ll be subjected to Bills football while the entire west coast defaults to the Giants. The most northeastern parts of the US (i.e. Maine, Vermont) will also have Buffalo and New England. This game will be announced by Solomon Wilcots and Kevin Harland.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
What could be the biggest game of week 3 between 2-0 teams will be seen in a select few markets. Most of Florida outside the Miami market, the southern most parts of Georgia, Virginia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania are the main markets for the Steelers and Buccaneers broadcast. The irony of 2 2-0 teams getting hardly any network recognition while 2 0-2 teams will headline Fox’s day game schedule…
The announcers for this game are Gus Johnson and Steve Tasker.
Cincinnati Bengals at Carolina Panthers
The 4th regional game features the debut of Jimmy Clausen and a Bengals team who beat the AFC’s Super Bowl favorite. Announced by Bill Macatee and Rich Gannon, this telecast will be shown in markets within the Carolinas, Kentucky, Ohio, and Eastern Indiana.
Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens
Some lucky individuals in Maryland, Delaware, D.C., eastern portions of West Virginia, and Ohio will be enlightened by Cleveland Browns football. The Ravens defense should make things entertaining, however. This game will be announced by Don Criqui and Steve Beuerlein.
The Kansas City, Houston, Minneapolis, and Southeastern portions of Louisiana around New Orleans will be blocked from the CBS Double Header because their hosting games on Fox.
