Per 506 Sports, here’s the FOX broadcast map for the early games on Sunday:
- Red: Rams at Patriots
- Blue: Eagles at Bengals
- Green: Lions at Saints
- Yellow: 49ers at Bears
Non-pictured market coverage: Anchorage, AK - Lions at Saints; Fairbanks, AK - Lions at Saints; Honolulu, HI - Rams at Patriots
If we needed any validation that Jared Goff vs. Tom Brady would resonate among the national NFL consciousness, this is it. A wide belt of the country including the country’s top two markets will get the game exposing the Rams and their rookie franchise QB to a huge audience.
For SoCal, the Rams get the full southern chunk of San Diego and eastward along with Bakersfield. Fresno still tilts the Niners’ way.
The 9-2 Patriots hold all of New England, all of the state of New York a sliver of northern Pennsylvania and the top half of Jersey.
As for the non-home markets, there’s a ton of them this weekend. Seattle. Portland. Phoenix. Denver. St. Louis. Nashville. Miami. And all kinds of surrounding mid- and lower-tier markets.
Much of the country is going to be watching the Rams take on the Patriots. Here’s hoping we put up a decent show on the road against a very good team.
