Per 506 Sports, here’s the early FOX broadcast map for Week 16:
- Blue: Los Angeles Rams at Tennessee Titans
- Red: Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints
- Green: Detroit Lions at Cincinnati Bengals
- Yellow: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers
Non-pictured market coverage: Anchorage, AK - Rams at Titans; Fairbanks, AK - Rams at Titans; Honolulu, HI - Rams at Titans
The Rams have played their way into a nationally interesting team in 2017, so the chance to clinch the NFC West crown has understandably earned a large portion of the national map. At the same time, an NFC South rivalry matchup between a 10-win Saints team and a 9-win Falcons squad is gonna deserve solid billing too. So we get the NFC West corridor creeping through the Rockies with the tiniest slivers of Idaho and Arizona notwithstanding. Some major markets like NYC, Chicago, Boston, Kansas City and Washington, D.C., don’t get an early FOX game with their home teams on CBS. The Titans’ market grabs most of Tennesee with parts of Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas, Mississippi and Virginia. Buffalo, Baltimore and Jacksonville will also get our game.
So it’s a large slice of the national audience as clarity comes to the playoff picture in Week 16. Hopefully it comes our way in the form of an NFC West divisional title with that chunk of the country tuning in.
