  1. Hey Ben we will here in Toledo, Ohio on WTOL will get just the BAL@CLE game NOT TEN@CIN just pointing that out (GO STEELERS)

  2. Hi, Ben. I reside in the St. Louis market and questioned CBS affiliate, KMOV as to why they are going to carry the Chiefs/Dolphins matchup instead of the Broncos/Seahawks game. I was told by KMOV that CBS determines the which games are to televised locally. Who is responsible for making the decision? Thanks.

    1. The networks largely make the calls in terms of who get which game. The affiliates do get some say in the matter and can lobby to get a certain game but it generally is the network's call.

  3. Well I think that St. Louis market will get KC@MIA because the Chiefs are in Missouri not Kansas

  4. Similar to the anon that posted about being in the St. Louis market. I am in the Minneapolis market, and I am wondering why we are supposed to get the Raiders/Pats instead of the Texans/Giants.

    1. Minneapolis market is getting the Texans/Giants game.

    2. Just saw that this morning here and on the 506. I figured it was off! Thank you though!

  5. What a shame that no one outside of Western NY and Socal gets the best early afternoon matchup between the Bills and Chargers. Raiders are one of the worst teams in the NFL. Does anyone really want to see another Patriots rout? These CBS affiliates need to wake up and realize that better match-ups generate higher ratings over an aging overrated Pats team.

    1. That was the first thing to strike me as odd....I live in New England, so of course I'm getting Pats-Raiders, but why is this game being shown in a plethora of southern markets, while SD vs Buffalo is much more regionalized coverage? The Patriots may be an average team this year, perhaps not- tough call this early, but no doubting the Raiders are atrocious- why would a neutral fan want to tune into this yawner?

    2. As a follow-up, I just noticed too, not only is Pats-Raiders stressed well above & beyond Chargers-Bills, but Texans-Giants is in fact listed as "primary"...I assumed at first it would be the Greg Gumbel team (Pats-Raiders) w/ Nantz/Simms of course on Seattle-Denver late. So I click on the distribution map link, and Texans (who no one believes yet is legit based on their schedule) vs the god-awful Giants is being shown all across the Great Plains, as well as oddly, the Richmond, VA area. If this isn't northeastern media bias, I don't know what is- Giants/Texans, Pats/Raiders-to most of America... wow, pinch me please. The irony is that there has been long-time friction in the Hartford market when very occasionally the Giants and Patriots both play at the same time on the same network. Looks like the Pats won out this time thanks to the Giants' pitiful play. So in Richmond & the Great Plains, you can see NY play, but in Hartford, you can't.

  6. Hey Everyone! just go out and Directv Sunday ticket and all your problems are solved!

  7. Better than NFL Sunday Ticket, just get NFL Red Zone and you will see all of the important plays of every game without any commercials!
