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.
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.
Which games will you be watching this weekend?
