NFL Coverage Map Week 5: TV schedule for FOX, CBS broadcasts

    The Week 5 NFL coverage map has been released. What games are going to be broadcast on TV in your area this weekend?

    The NFL coverage map for Week 5 has officially been released. This week, FOX will get both the early and late games. Meanwhile, CBS will broadcast just one game on TV. The NFL will return to London this week to continue the International Series with an early kickoff Sunday morning.

    NFL Coverage Map for Week 5

    NFL TV broadcast and coverage maps are courtesy of The color codes and what games that corresponds to are listed below. Listings include CBS, FOX, and prime-time games on NFL Network, NBC, and ESPN.

    Early CBS games

    Red: Dolphins @ Buccaneers
    Jim Nantz and Tony Romo

    For Week 5, CBS has sent their best crew in Jim Nantz and Tony Romo to Tampa Bay to cover the Dolphins vs. Buccaneers game. An odd choice considering Miami has been one of the least exciting teams to watch through the first four weeks of the season. Perhaps skipping over the early slate of games on Sunday and giving Nantz and Romo the game in beautiful SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles between the Browns and Chargers would’ve made more sense not only for the network but the NFL as a whole.

    All in all, here’s to hoping you fall in an area on the Week 5 NFL TV map that’ll view the Browns vs. Chargers game. If not, happy napping.

    Yellow: Saints @ Washington
    Spero Dedes and Jay Feely

    Orange: Patriots @ Texans
    Andrew Catalon and James Lofton

    Teal: Titans @ Jaguars
    Tom McCarthy and Tiki Barber

    Red: Giants @ Cowboys
    Joe Buck and Troy Aikman

    The country goes to Jerry’s world for the late FOX broadcast in Week 5. It’s no surprise the Dallas Cowboys get a prime window with FOX’s premier crew of Joe Buck and former Cowboy Troy Aikman.

    Thankfully, the Cowboys are a fun team to watch in 2021. But the Giants aren’t. NFC East games will typically get priority for more real estate across the NFL broadcast map. For entertainment purposes, however, the game farther west between the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals may be a bit more competitive.

    Blue: 49ers @ Cardinals
    Kevin Kugler and Mark Sanchez

    National Broadcasts

    Thursday Night Football
    Rams @ Seahawks (NFL Network)

    Sunday Morning Football
    Jets @ Falcons (London game) (NFL Network)

    The first NFL International Series game since 2019 takes place this Sunday between the New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons. It’s an early game, set for a 9:30 AM ET kickoff on NFL Network. CBS’ Greg Gumbel and Adam Archuleta will be on the call.

    Sunday Night Football
    Bills @ Chiefs (NBC)

    This should be the Game of the Week. A rematch of last year’s AFC Championship Game, the Buffalo Bills have looked better than the Kansas City Chiefs early in 2021 especially on defense. It’ll be a hostile crowd at Arrowhead, and you can see it regardless of your location as long as you have NBC.

    Monday Night Football
    Colts @ Ravens (ESPN)
