    as of right now

    Vikes/Jags on CBS (both Mankato and Minneapolis)
    Packers/49ers on Fox Minneapolis (no Fox early game as Vikes at home)

    Fox Mankato hasnt updated yet with what games they will show (they CAN show an early game as they are more than 75 miles from the Humpty Dome)

    Too soon to tell, most haven't been populated in the guide, just says NFL Football.

    I know the Rams and Lions will be on locally on Fox at 1 out of Detroit and the Colts and Bears on CBS at 1.
    The Toledo feed will show the Browns on Fox ...
    So, Lions fans outside of Detroit will need to find Channel 2 if they can get it to watch the Lions game in this area.

    I hate that, Cleveland is 2.5 hours away and Detroit is 45 minutes away, but locally they show the Browns whenever possible.

    Oh no, not at all .....

    Thats why God made the ST !!!

    Go Steelers !!!

    Fwiw, I will gladly watch the Lions over the Browns when the two are on at the same time.

    I should be able to watch all the Lions and Steelers games this year, I think there was only like 3 weeks that they play at the same time !!!

    Probably since Detroit is out of state, they don't consider part of the "local" area.

    For the Detroit Area for sure:

    Rams @ Lions- 1 PM ET on FOX
    Colts @ Bears- 1 PM ET on CBS

    We're also suppose to get a 4:25 PM ET game on FOX but it has yet TBD. My guess is that it'll be the 49ers @ Packers

    1pm - CBS Colts vs Bears (Both Cincinnati and Dayton)
    1pm - FOX Eagles @ Browns (Dish guide says TBA for Fox 19 but Fox 19 Cinti site has these games- Fox 45 Dayton site still has TBA but I'd be shocked if they don't show the Eagles @ Browns)
    4:30pm - FOX 49ers @ Packers (Dish guide says TBA for Fox 19 but Fox 19 Cinti site has these games- Fox 45 Dayton site still has TBA)

    I was about to post this. Great site. Very rarely have they been wrong.

    For me in CT I don't have the list but if I had to guess I'd say:

    1pm: Pats VS Titans and no Fox game because of course EVERYONE in CT is a Pats fan so therefore any game on the competing network automatically pulls a 0.0 rating so there's no point of showing it.

    4pm: Niners VS Packers (F-YEAH!)

    Overall though like others here it doesn't matter any week because I'll be getting NFL Sunday Ticket once again (necessity as a 49ers fan) except mine will be via the PS3 app that does it. I got it last year and it worked very well. Not as good as the DirecTV package but hell it's Sunday Ticket without needing DirecTV!

    because you are in the teams local area (stations within 75 miles of stadium) you get no early game....not because the Pats are on. Fox has the DH but in your case (and mine being in Mpls) our teams are at home. No game can go against it in the home team market

    as JP writes on his site
    If the local team is playing at home and it's sold out, that's the only game on local TV. Even if the other network has a doubleheader. Even if the Game of the Century is at the same time.

    I, too live in CT. and like I posted above, we will be seeing the Pats on WFSB3 out of Hartford and the Jets on WCBS2 out of NY. I dont know if FOX has a game or not. According to zap2it.com, there is but it says NFL Football.

    Another incredibly stupid and outdated rule that the NFL likes to hold onto I suppose. However I don't think that applies for us because A: The stadium is 100 miles away from the television station, and B: Patriots are playing away this week.
    I'm not seeing this anywhere. I have seen that there is a game on but I suppose they haven't decided which one. They'll probably pick that one since it's the "most local" of the bunch, unless you count the Eagles game.. Again at the end of the day doesn't matter since I have NFL ST. Speaking of, I better order that soon.
