The NFL coverage map has been released for the NFL Week 18 schedule. On the final Sunday of the NFL season, both CBS and FOX get early and late games across the NFL TV map. With no Thursday night or Monday night games, national broadcasts take place on Saturday with two games and the usual Sunday night game.
NFL Coverage Map for Week 18
NFL TV broadcast and coverage maps are courtesy of 506sports.com. The color codes and what games they correspond to are listed below.
Listings include CBS, FOX, and prime-time games on NBC and ESPN. These maps are subject to change throughout the week.
CBS Early NFL TV Broadcast Coverage Map
Red: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens
Ian Eagle and Charles Davis
The only CBS game in the early window with NFL playoff implications for both teams is the Steelers vs. Ravens game. Both are currently out of the NFL playoff picture, but with a little luck, they can sneak in.
Regardless, it’ll be a hard-fought contest with their season on the line, and possibly the last NFL game for Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Purple: Indianapolis Colts @ Jacksonville Jaguars
Greg Gumbel and Adam Archuleta
Green: Tennessee Titans @ Houston Texans
Andrew Catalon and James Lofton
CBS Late NFL TV Broadcast Coverage Map
Red: Carolina Panthers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jim Nantz and Tony Romo
Purple: New York Jets @ Buffalo Bills
Kevin Harlan and Trent Green
Green: New England Patriots @ Miami Dolphins
Spero Dedes and Jay Feely
The Patriots vs. Dolphins game got moved to the late CBS window this past week. While the Dolphins have nothing but pride to play for, the Patriots are playing for the AFC East title. With the Bills playing in the same late window on CBS, there’ll be a lot of scoreboard watching in Buffalo and Miami Sunday afternoon.
FOX Early NFL TV Broadcast Coverage Map
Red: Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions
Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen
Purple: Cincinnati Bengals @ Cleveland Browns
Kenny Albert and Jonathan Vilma
The FOX early window doesn’t have much drama outside of the Packers and Bengals. While seeding in the NFL playoffs is on the line, it’ll be interesting to see if the Browns — who started the 2021 NFL season with high expectations — can end the season on a high note before what’ll surely be an entertaining offseason for the fans in Cleveland.
Green: Washington Football Team @ New York Giants
Chris Myers and Daryl Johnston
Yellow: Chicago Bears @ Minnesota Vikings
Gus Johnson and Aqib Talib
FOX Late NFL TV Broadcast Coverage Map
Red: San Francisco 49ers @ Los Angeles Rams
Joe Buck and Troy Aikman
While there is plenty of seeding drama to be sorted out in the NFC, only two teams are fighting for a final spot in the NFC Wild Card. The 49ers are one of those teams, with the Saints clinging on for hope.
The 49ers and Saints both play in the late window, so there’ll be drama all the way leading up to the Sunday Night Football game between the Chargers and Raiders.
Purple: Seattle Seahawks @ Arizona Cardinals
Adam Amin and Mark Schlereth
Green: New Orleans Saints @ Atlanta Falcons
Kevin Kugler and Mark Sanchez
Kansas City Chiefs @ Denver Broncos (ESPN/ABC)
Dallas Cowboys @ Philadelphia Eagles (ESPN/ABC)
Sunday Night Football
Los Angeles Chargers @ Las Vegas Raiders (NBC)
