FanSided’s NFL TV coverage maps for Week 14 are live, and here re the games you will be seeing this weekend.
After another week impacted by coronavirus-related disruptions, the NFL is back (fingers crossed) to a normal schedule in Week 14. The slate is unusually stacked, with quality matchups in all three primetime slots and across the Sunday afternoon windows as well.
Which games will be on in your area and who will be calling the action? Check out this week’s NFL TV coverage maps, which have been provided courtesy of 506 Sports, for all of those answers and more.
Thursday Night Football (FOX/NFL Network)
New England Patriots (6-6) at Los Angeles Rams (8-4): Joe Buck, Troy Aikman
This will be a quick turnaround for Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, who will be calling their second game in three days out in Los Angeles. This could be a tricky spot for the Rams, who have to deal with a New England team that won’t have to travel and is getting hot at the right time.
Kansas City Chiefs (11-1) at Miami Dolphins (8-4) (Red): Jim Nantz, Tony Romo
Houston Texans (4-8) at Chicago Bears (5-7) (Green): Kevin Harlan, Trent Green
Denver Broncos (4-8) at Carolina Panthers (4-8) (Orange): Andrew Catalon, James Lofton
Tennessee Titans (8-4) at Jacksonville Jaguars (1-11) (Light Blue): Spero Dedes, Adam Archuleta
Indianapolis Colts (8-4) at Las Vegas Raiders (7-5) (Dark Blue, 4:05): Ian Eagle, Charles Davis
New York Jets (0-12) at Seattle Seahawks (8-4) (Yellow, 4:05): Greg Gumbel, Rich Gannon
CBS has the singleheader this week but their top game is a good one as the Chiefs hit the road to take on Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami Dolphins. The other intriguing matchup comes at 4:05 as the Colts take on the Raiders in a game that could have a major impact on the wild card chase in the AFC.
FOX (Early Window)
Minnesota Vikings (6-6) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-5) (Red): Joe Buck, Troy Aikman
Arizona Cardinals (6-6) at New York Giants (5-7) (Blue): Kenny Albert, Jonathan Vilma
Dallas Cowboys (3-9) at Cincinnati Bengals (2-9-1) (Green): Kevin Kugler, Chris Spielman
It is a bit unusual to see FOX send their top broadcast team into the early window on a doubleheader weekend but Buck and Aikman are on the best game on FOX’s schedule so this makes sense. Cardinals-Giants is also intriguing and is a decent undercard while Cowboys-Bengals is getting the least distribution among FOX’s 1:00 games.
FOX (Late Window)
New Orleans Saints (10-2) at Philadelphia Eagles (3-8-1) (Red): Kevin Burkhardt, Daryl Johnston
Green Bay Packers (9-3) at Detroit Lions (5-7) (Blue): Adam Amin, Mark Schlereth
Washington Football Team (5-7) “at” San Francisco 49ers (5-7) (Green): Chris Myers, Greg Jennings
Atlanta Falcons (4-8) at Los Angeles Chargers (3-9) (Yellow): Joe Davis, Brock Huard
None of FOX’s late window games are particularly great, leading the network to split its distribution with Saints-Eagles and Packers-Lions getting the majority of the action. The good news is that there are four games here to choose from, which is unusual in the late window, so FOX will have options to switch into a better game if any of the main matchups turn into blowouts.
Sunday Night Football (NBC)
Pittsburgh Steelers (11-1) at Buffalo Bills (9-3): Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth
The Sunday night game this week is a massive one as the Steelers will look to bounce back from their first loss of the season against the AFC East-leading Bills. These teams met a year ago on NBC, with the Bills scoring a big win that helped send Pittsburgh spiraling out of a wild card spot in the season’s final weeks.
Monday Night Football (ESPN)
Baltimore Ravens (7-5) at Cleveland Browns (9-3): Steve Levy, Brian Griese, Louis Riddick
This is the biggest game in years for the Browns, who can essentially solidify a playoff berth by taking down the Ravens at home in primetime. ESPN lucked out here with a doozy of a game that looked quite questionable when the schedule was released in May.
