Per 506 Sports, here’s the FOX broadcast map for late games in Week 13:
- Green: Los Angeles Rams at Arizona Cardinals
- Red: Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints
- Blue: New York Giants at Oakland Raiders
Non-pictured market coverage: Anchorage, AK - Rams at Cardinals; Fairbanks, AK - Rams at Cardinals; Honolulu, HI - Panthers at Saints
The Rams are in a bit of a bind for viewers today. With the NFC South mired in a three-way race between the Atlanta Falcons, Panthers and Saints, the game between the Minnesota Vikings and Atlanta is carrying the early map while Panthers-Saints is the major draw among the late games. With the five-win Cards all but out of postseason contention and Week 13 offering a rematch of a 33-0 blowout from a month and a half ago, there’s just not much of a case for putting the Rams on many TV sets outside of the home markets today.
So the Rams will soak up SoCal in the later games including San Diego, Santa Barbara and Bakersfield. The Cards bring in all of Arizona save for the northeast 191 corridor.
Seahawks fans in the Pacific Northwest will get the game with rooting interests for the NFC West and playoff positioning ruling the day. They bring in all of Washington and Oregon with most of Idaho, a large chunk of Montana and slivers of NorCal and Wyoming.
And the Rams’ former home market will get the game today with the St. Louis market getting their former franchise on the broadcast docket.
