As I’ve tried to explain weekly, each week either FOX or CBS has the NFL doubleheader for the Sunday games.  FOX generally gets the NFC games and CBS generally gets the AFC games.

So, yes, last week, when CBS had the doubleheader and the Green Bay Packers were out west in the 4:00pm game, it didn’t air here.  But this week, FOX has the doubleheader, so Cheeseheads rejoice!

FOX will of course start the day with our local team, the Detroit Lions, hosting the San Francisco 49ers.  We also get the three-man booth for the first time in a while with Thom Brennaman, Charles Davis, and Tony Siragusa.  The Green Bay Packers visit the Arizona Cardinals for the national FOX broadcast at 4:00pm with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman on the call.

CBS will air the New England Patriots at the New York Jets for the west side of Michigan, especially for those who have Tom Brady in their Fantasy Football finals, like me.
