The Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals will be the only teams playing in the late game slot for what’s a FOX singleheader week. Incredibly, the lead broadcast team of Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen are doing the Packers-Lions game — combined records 4-11. Aaron Rodgers sells even when the team stinks, I suppose.
Instead Seattle gets the #2 crew of Adam Amin and Daryl Johnson, with sideline reporter Pam Oliver. Amin is filling in for Joe Davis, who’s been a bit busy with a little event known as the World Series.
506 Sports does the maps, and you’ll see a lot of light blue scattered across the United States in non-Seahawks markets such as Chicago, Indianapolis, Buffalo, New York City, and Boston.
CBS in the early game window includes the Dolphins, Bears, Jets, Colts, and Patriots, so as a means of having those respective home markets not have any games airing on another network, the FOX game they receive has to be in the late window. As such, Seahawks-Cardinals is the only choice. Hopefully this works out for any ‘Hawks fans living in those markets!
Tough break for Seahawks fans in Eugene, as Marcus Mariota and Justin Herbert being Oregon alums means you’re getting Chargers-Falcons.
