NFL Coverage Map Week 8: TV schedule for FOX, CBS broadcasts

The NFL coverage map has been released for Week 8. On Sunday, CBS will only air one game depending on what area of the United States you find yourself in. FOX, however, will air both an early and late afternoon game. With just two teams on a bye in Week 8, you’ll have a jam-packed NFL TV map.

Red: Steelers @ Browns
Jim Nantz and Tony Romo

Not many compelling options for your CBS coverage in Week 8, but the station has sent Jim Nantz and Tony Romo to cover the AFC North matchup in Cleveland this week. With the Steelers’ less-than-exciting offense and injuries piling up for the Browns, it could be a snore-fest. However, division rivals can usually provide great TV, especially in the AFC North.

Green: Bengals @ Jets
Kevin Harland and Trent Green

Brown: Dolphins @ Bills
Andrew Catalon and James Lofton

Teal: Titans @ Colts
Spero Dedes and Jay Feely

Blue: Patriots @ Chargers (LATE)
Ian Eagle and Charles Davis

Yellow: Jaguars @ Seahawks (LATE)
Greg Gumbel and Adam Archuleta

Red: 49ers @ Bears
Adam Amin and Greg Olsen

Blue: Eagles @ Lions
Kenny Albert and Jonathan Vilma

Green: Panthers @ Falcons
Kevin Kugler and Mark Sanchez

Yellow: Rams @ Texans
Chris Myers and Daryl Johnston

Good luck finding a FOX game during the early slate that’ll keep you glued to your TV. Most of the country will get the 49ers vs. Bears, but you’re better off napping. The most exciting thing to catch will probably be the Rams beating up on the Texans.
