Here are the coverage maps for CBS and FOX, the two networks who carry almost all the games on Sundays. The lone exception being the Sunday Night Football on NBC. Because those networks carry multiple games at the same time slot, different regions of the country show different games.

Let’s dive right into it with CBS’ coverage map, and all the maps are courtesy of 506 Sports.

Since CBS has two time slots mixed into one map things get interesting. The Denver Broncos game against the New York Jets is getting national coverage and that seems like a rather boring choice and shouldn’t be very competitive between the hot Broncos and cold Jets. The rest of the coverage is pretty regional, with the exception of the Chargers and Raiders game in the afternoon popping up in rather un-related markets around the country.

Fox has two games in the four o’clock hour, so they have two maps.

The early schedule is pretty diverse but has kept things to the regionally relevant areas. Louisville gets the Minnesota Vikings game because of Teddy Bridgewater. New Orleans gets the Carolina Panthers game because of the NFC South connections. For some reason the southwest, midwest, Denver and Houston are getting the New England Patriots game against the Buffalo, likely because it is actually a compelling and intriguing match up.

Otherwise the Green Bay Packers game against the Miami Dolphin gets national coverage in a lot of markets that would seemingly be disinterested.

Pretty much regional coverage based on the teams, but the Dallas Cowboys game against the Seattle Seahawks gets national coverage.
