The final Sunday of the NFL regular season brings us all 32 teams playing on the same day for the only time all season. Happy Week 17!
Even more intriguing is that 15 of those 16 games come in the early- and late-afternoon windows on CBS and Fox. Every market will receive two games in both time slots this week, meaning you can watch four games total before settling in for Washington at Philadelphia on Sunday night. This week’s coverage maps break down which regions of the country will see all the action, with an obvious skew toward the biggest playoff matchups.
It’s the only time all year that every market receives two games on both networks. Usually, one gets to double down while the other just shows one game. But because of the high volume and importance of the Week 17 games Sunday, the league gives every market the maximum number of games in Week 17.
Below are the full NFL coverage maps for Week 17, plus a list of major TV markets and the CBS and Fox games that will be presented in each on Sunday.
Note: The folks at 506Sports noted that the Week 17 coverage map often changes throughout the week, so the maps below are subject to change from their initial structure.
