NFL Week 3 National TV Maps: Bengals-Broncos available for majority of country

New, comments

For a 1:00 p.m. ET Sunday afternoon game, there might not be a better chance all year that the Bengals are on your TV if you live outside of the Cincinnati area.

The Bengals don’t have a primetime game until next Sunday, but this Sunday when they play the Broncos, it will be as close to a nationally-viewed game as you can get for a 1:00 p.m. ET Sunday matchup.

The Bengals vs Broncos game is clearly the game of the week, featuring two teams in the top 10 of most power rankings, and accordingly, it will be shown to most of the United States on Sunday afternoon on CBS. For the second week in a row, Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts will be calling the Bengals’ game.

Essentially, you need to live in one of 10 states to not get the Bengals game on your TV on Sunday, and of course, I live in one of those states.

After the Bengals game is over, those in the Cincinnati area will get the Steelers-Eagles game. That’s sure to be another good matchup, and, here’s to hoping Carson Wentz continues to be good enough to beat the Steelers.

Here are FOX’s games of the week, highlighted by the 49ers at Seahawks in the late afternoon, Redskins at Giants at 1:00 p.m. ET and Vikings at Panthers also at 1:00 p.m. ET.

Thursday Night Football features the Texans at Patriots on CBS, NFL Network and Twitter. This is a rare home game for which the Patriots are the underdogs. They’re likely to start rookie quarterback Jacoby Brissett after Jimmy Garoppolo got hurt in Week 2.

Sunday Night Football sees the Bears in primetime for the second straight week (WHY!?) as Chicago heads to Dallas to face the Cowboys.

And, the week concludes with Monday Night Football in New Orleans as the Falcons travel to take on their division rival Saints.

Which games will you be watching this weekend?
