The NFL coverage map for Week 2 is going to get a little bit crazy, as Fox will only be broadcasting a single regional game instead of its usual pairing of an early and a late game. That means that viewers will only be able to watch one of the seven games that Fox is airing regionally.
There are a couple of good matchups on Fox’s schedule, but the two most prominent ones feature teams that won in Week 1. The 49ers-Eagles game and Rams-Colts games figure to be the marquee matchups, but how readily available will they be for viewers? It’s worth wondering given how regionalized Fox’s broadcasts will be in Week 2.
The good news for football fans is that CBS is still airing two sets of games. In the early slate, they’ll likely focus on the battle between the Raiders and Steelers, two of the NFL’s most storied franchises.
Meanwhile, the late window features the Cowboys taking on the Chargers and a battle between playoff teams from 2020, the Seahawks and Titans. The Cowboys are affectionately known as “America’s team,” and accordingly, they will get most attention among games broadcast on CBS.
Below are the full NFL coverage maps for Week 2, plus a list of major TV markets and the CBS and Fox games that will be presented in each on Sunday.
