Your Sunday NFL Viewing Schedule And Coverage Maps: Spero Dedes Edition
You know Fox, sometimes I just don't get you. Of your two NFL late games tonight, we have Philadelphia at Green Bay and Detroit at Arizona. Of course the Lions-Cardinals is the most interesting and relevant matchup. But most of the nation will get Eagles-Packers, and with it a heaping helping of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman.
Really -- look at this coverage map. Unless you live in the Pacific Northwest, in Arizona, or in Michigan (for some reason), Joe Buck, Aaron Rodgers and whoever is playing quarterback for the Eagles are being invited into your home. Unless you've got DirecTV or are live streaming or in a sports bar, that is. If the latter, think about your health for once and choose the salad, for God's sake.
Meanwhile, over at CBS:
As you can see, the coverage is widely distributed, and the late game between the Raiders and host Chargers is not. BUT ... that game will include play-by-play from Spero Dedes (above), the former Lakers and Knicks broadcaster who was canned and is now doing more national stuff so good for him.
@MikePereira Oakland is at San Diego. If Triplette went to the wrong city, it’s your ass.
