Today FOX will show a doubleheader while CBS will broadcast one game to each region. There will be no FOX doubleheader for New York today, however. The Jets play in the early afternoon timeslot at home. NFL rules dictate that games involving a local team playing at home can be the only games broadcast in that timeslot. I get the impression the crowd reading this blog will get over the lack of an early game on FOX this week.
If you live in the New York area, you will see:
Steelers at Jets early on CBS
Giants at Seahawks late on FOX
The fact the Steelers are playing gives this game a wider audience than you would expect the 1-8 Jets to get. Parts of New England, the Midwest, the Carolinas, and even parts of Oregon and a small slither of Washington State will carry this 1:00 PM Eastern kickoff.

The entire nation will see Bears at Packers tonight on NBC and Panthers at Eagles tomorrow on ESPN.
