NFL Broadcast Maps, Week 2

Sorry for the delay on the post, but I was busy being a productive citizen yesterday.

Week 2 is here and once again, 506 Sports details the TV coverages for Sunday.

Here’s the link:  http://506sports.com/

National Games are as follows:

TNF: Jets @ Bills.  The first short-week TNF game is today.  Both teams are looking for their first win.  This is a Color Rush game, because apparently we need those.

SNF:  Packers @ Minnesota.  Before Bridgewater went down, I would have rated this a good matchup.  Then again, the Packers weren’t exactly worldbeaters against the Jags last week.  I do not know what to expect from this one.

MNF:  Eagles @ Bears.   Two subpar to middling big market teams, it’s a perfect fit for an ESPN MNF broadcast.

On to the Sunday games, we have an 8:5 early-late spread, which is abnormal.

CBS Early

Bengals @ Steelers (Red): Early bout between the two strongest AFC North teams.  Both teams are 1-0.  Most of the country gets to see this one.

Dolphins @ Patriots (Blue):  This one is limited to the Northeast and the place were people from the Northeast retire.  As always Fuck the Greatriots.

Chiefs @ Texans (Green):  This one is featured in the breadbasket states and parts of California.  I see the presence of the Rams will have wonderous effects on the broadcasts in CA for now on.

Titans @ Lions (Yellow):  Mostly contained to their core markets, but Oregon gets to behold Marcus Mariota’s inevitable ignominious demise as a viable QB.

Ravens @ Browns (Orange…wait no, Brown….ah Orange-Brown…no ah Cuyahoga River, yes that’s the one):  You have my sympathies if you have to watch this one.  The miserable Browns versus a rebuilding Ravens.

CBS Late

Colts @ Indy (Red):  Peyton Manning?  Peyton Manning. Peyton Manning!  #Peyton Manning.  It’s Jeem and Pheel so I actually expect most of the broadcast to just be discussions of Peyton Manning.

Falcons @ Raiders (Blue):  Fairly limited to the core markets.  Raiders are a team on the rise while the Falcons just seem to exist in sustained mediocrity.

Jags @ Chargers (Green):  HAHAHAHAHA LOOK AT THE CHARGERS BROADCAST IN CALIFORNIA. MORE TERRITORY IN GEORGIA WILL BROADCAST THE GAME THAN IN CALIFORNIA. HAHAHAHAHA FUCK OFF KING MARMALADE.

Fox Early & Late

Cowboys @ Redskins (Blue):  One of these teams will have a win after this game unfortunately.  Also most of the country gets to witness this debacle.

Saints @ Giants (Green):  Core markets and West Palm Beach see this one.  A declining Saints vs. a rebuilding Giants, not as enticing a match-up as it was in years past.

49ers @ Panthers (Orange/Brown):  Again, mostly core markets.  You’ll probably hear more about the national anthem for this one than the actual game itself.  I expect the Panthers to roll the 9ers.

Seahawks @ Rams (Red & Late Game):  The first regular season game in LA for decades. Can Pornstache’s magic abilities against far superior teams continue?  I give this one the FEMA Quarantine Map Game of the Week Award since of the random, spread-out distributions.

Bucs @ Cards (Yellow & Late Game):  Mostly just the primary markets here.  I do not have much to say about this match-up.

Enjoy.

I can’t wait to watch the Colts play against Indy! It’s sure to be a thriller!

This definitely helps me decide to sit a hobbled Charles Clay in my uber-competitive PPR league. No way can the Humps defense contain Jack Doyle!!

Oh those Titans digs! What a Sophie’s Choice, between indifference and disdain.

That is a seriously weird incursion of the Ravens game into Middle PA, which is pretty much STILLERS COUNTRY, so I’d imagine some Yinzer asshole from York or Carlisle going apeshit if he tries to watch the game at home only to be presented with the Ravens instead. In fact, that might make a trip down that way on Sunday worthwhile, just to hear people scream incoherently when they get the wrong game on TV.

I’ve noticed that in Chicago an effort will be made to show other NFC North games whether they’re worth watching or not. I think the broadcasters figure you’ll be interested in (read: hate watch) your rivals if you can’t see your own team.

And if you can’t be shown that, you’ll get a steady diet of NFC East until you die.

I wish they’d do that in the west. I get enough east coast coverage when it comes to news/politics/weather/sports reports — I don’t need to see Eagles/SLURS just because #populationdensity.

If not, just give me anything BUT the NFC East.

Unbelievable as it may seem, you can badger your affiliate to change the game. Every week, a bunch of markets switch games for whatever reason. As long as a station isn’t in a designated secondary market of a team, it can air whatever game it wants.

Thanks to a very healthy resale market.

But maybe not by the end of the season. Congress is DOING SOMETHIGN!

I wish JV footy would just put a cap on the uniform changes.

But then how are we gonna sell more meaningless merchandise that no one will give a fuck about two weeks after the event?

WHY DON’T YOU JUST GO TAKE A SEAT WITH KAPERNICK OVER THERE BECAUSE YOU’RE A GODDAMN COMMIE!

I don’t even think they sell that stuff.

Though you did just describe 12% of the NFL’s color rush gear.

I will admit that the helmets that were made for last year’s Army-Navy game were a combination of unique and odd. Coming from a – kind of – Navy family, they seemed cool to me.

Of course, you are still a Commie. A dirty one at that.

I’m glad you notice the fashion show element of that annual patriotfest because that broadcast sure as hell isn’t football.
