Bills vs. Patriots: TV map is wide this week

New, comments

The Patriots bring lots of the United States to the TV screen.

The Buffalo Bills square off against their most notable opponent of the season when they travel to Foxborough to take on the New England Patriots this week. The big-time opponent is also reflected in the television map, where the Bills will be on broadcast television for most of the eastern half of the country.

In addition to all of upstate New York and into New England getting the game, most of the upper Midwest will see it, as well, into Indiana and Missouri. Alaska, Hawaii, Miami, South Carolina, and portions of the South from Oklahoma to Georgia.

Georgia and Alabama would have been even redder on the map above if Macon, Georgia and Birmingham, Alabama hadn’t switched to other games.

Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts will be on the call for CBS. They are considered the second-best team by the network, following Jim Nantz and Phil Simms. The third team of Greg Gumbel and Trent Green will be broadcasting the national game Sunday morning from London, another sign of how important the Patriots are to the network.
