NFL TV Week 2 Coverage Maps: Seahawks-Lions gets FOX’s top team, but not top distribution

Packers vs. Falcons will be the main game on FOX.

Usually when a game features the top commentary team on FOX or CBS, that matchup gets the largest national coverage for that specific broadcast window. In the case of the Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions at 10 am, there’s an exception.

Yes, Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen are FOX’s No. 1 commentary team and they’ll be at Ford Field this Sunday, but as 506 Sports’ broadcast map shows, the main game in terms of distribution is actually the Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons.

I’m sure that beyond just the bad performance by the Seahawks against the Los Angeles Rams, the love for Jordan Love has begun after the Packers’ dominant win over the Chicago Bears.

Other than most of the Pacific Northwest (including Alaska) and the Detroit metro area, it looks like Cleveland and Pittsburgh are the only other major markets getting Seahawks-Lions. In fact, percentages wise the Seahawks and Lions may be one of the lesser distributed games on the FOX slate.

If the game goes as expected then maybe that’s a good thing, if you catch my draft.
