Per 506 Sports, here’s the FOX broadcast map for the late games on Sunday:
- Blue: Rams at Cardinals
- Red: Cowboys at 49ers
- Green: Saints at Chargers
Non-pictured market coverage: Anchorage, AK - Cowboys at 49ers; Fairbanks, AK - Cowboys at 49ers; Honolulu, HI - Cowboys at 49ers
Welp. This should tell you where the Rams and Cardinals sit in the franchise power rankings compared to the Cowboys and Niners.
The Rams’ TV market is the same exact chunk of SoCal as last week but adding the southeast corner surrounding El Centro, California.
Nearly all of Arizona gets the game as well save for that northeastern sliver along 191.
Strangely last week, the St. Louis market didn’t get the Rams game. That’s remedied this week with the Columbia-St. Louis-Cape Girardeau belt all get served the game.
And Cedar Rapids, Iowa, gets UNI-grad Cardinals RB David Johnson facing off against the Rams, the team former UNI QB Kurt Warner helped win a Super Bowl less than two decades ago. Stand up Cedar Rapids. Where you at Iowa City? Waterloo, get some. Dubuque and the whole damn clique.
The big takeaway here is the Rams, despite the market switch from St. Louis to Los Angeles, still aren’t capturing the attention of the nation and the media handlers.
Could a 3-1 record heading into October change that?
