The Seattle Seahawks will be getting a lot of national attention this month. In addition to the back-to-back Thursday night games against the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys, the Seahawks will be getting top billing on the CBS regional slate this Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.
Jim Nantz and Tony Romo will be on the call in Baltimore. The previous three times Nantz and Romo have called a Seahawks game, they’ve lost. This means absolutely nothing but maybe some of you are superstitious. While Week 9 has several compelling games, the CBS lineup other than Seahawks-Ravens is a horror show. The other options are Buccaneers-Texans, Bears-Saints, Cardinals-Browns, and Colts-Panthers. Literally only one team above .500 out of that group and it’s the 4-3 Browns.
506 Sports has the coverage map and commentator info, and I’d say your chances of being in one of the red areas is high. An overwhelming majority of US television markets will be tuned into this one!
Now I dumped all over the CBS schedule... but have you seen FOX? The late game doubleheader between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles is an A+ must-watch game, but the morning slate is as dismal as it gets. Most of the country is getting the 3-5 Los Angeles Rams and the 2-6 Green Bay Packers. What more can be said?
FOX (10 AM)
Pour one out for the unlucky souls getting the New York Giants-Las Vegas Raiders instead of Cowboys-Eagles. Man, how did we end up with so many mediocre and awful teams this year?
