NFL: New York Jets at Buffalo Bills Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

Each Sunday during the NFL season either FOX or CBS gets to show a doubleheader. The doubleheader network shows games in both the early and late afternoon timeslots. The other network only gets to show one game to each region of the country, either an early game or a late game. This is called regional coverage. So in previews when you hear a promo saying, “It’s a doubleheader Sunday,” or, “We have regional coverage on (FOX/CBS),” now you know what it means.

For Week 1 FOX has a doubleheader, while CBS has regional coverage.

If you live in the New York area, you will see:

Bills at Jets early on CBS

Redskins at Eagles early on FOX

Cowboys at Giants late on FOX


Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon will call today’s game between the Jets and the Bills on CBS. Kickoff time is scheduled for 1:00. The game will be televised in markets originating in New York State and New England. To see what games your region will be shown, click here.
