Which announcers will be covering Week 6 of the NFL for both CBS and FOX?

NFL CBS Week 6 games

With the start of the 2021 NFL bye week schedule, we have a reduced number of games for both networks this week. After their announcers assisted NFL Network in calling the game last week, CBS will be the Week 6 London Game broadcasters.

CBS will send one team to London, another three teams to cover the 1 PM ET slate, and then two teams will work in the 4:25 PM ET kickoff window. They will send three-person teams to five of their six games, with one two-person team in Indianapolis.
