A pair of NFC West showdowns and Pittsburgh’s trip to Green Bay highlight the Week 4 NFL schedule, but what games will be available in your area?
The calendar is flipping to October in the NFL and there have been plenty of dramatic storylines in the first month of the year, including the rise of unexpected contenders like the Broncos and Raiders as well as some incredible comeback performances from Aaron Rodgers and Justin Herbert. The intrigue should increase in Week 4 as the most anticipated reunion of the season happens on Sunday night as Tom Brady returns to Foxboro to take on the New England Patriots for the first time since leaving as a free agent at the end of the 2019 season.
While everyone will get to see that game, who will be able to check out the top NFC West matchups or Pittsburgh’s trip to Green Bay? Check out this week’s NFL TV coverage maps, courtesy of 506 Sports, to find out what games will be on in your area and who is calling the action.
NFL Week 4 TV coverage maps
Thursday, Sept. 30
Thursday Night Football (NFL Network)
Jacksonville Jaguars (0-3) at Cincinnati Bengals (2-1): Joe Buck, Troy Aikman
Another NFL Network exclusive for Thursday Night Football features a dud matchup as the winless Jaguars give Trevor Lawrence his first taste of NFL primetime action against the surprising Bengals. Joe Burrow and company can make a big statement by picking up this win to go 3-1 to start the season.
Sunday, Oct. 3
Carolina Panthers (3-0) at Dallas Cowboys (2-1) (Red): Kevin Burkhardt, Greg Olsen
New York Giants (0-3) at New Orleans Saints (2-1) (Dark Blue): Kenny Albert, Jonathan Vilma
Washington Football Team (1-2) at Atlanta Falcons (1-2) (Orange): Kevin Kugler, Mark Sanchez
Detroit Lions (0-3) at Chicago Bears (1-2) (Light Blue): Gus Johnson, Aqib Talib
Seattle Seahawks (1-2) at San Francisco 49ers (2-1) (Green, 4:05): Adam Amin, Mark Schlereth
Arizona Cardinals (3-0) at Los Angeles Rams (3-0) (Yellow, 4:05): Chris Myers, Daryl Johnston
FOX has the singleheader this week which unfortunately means most of the country will miss out on the elite NFC West showcases. Cowboys-Panthers will be the headliner for the early window and get the biggest distribution while this week’s Gus Johnson special is Lions-Bears, so expect some kind of wackiness to happen in that game.
CBS Early Window
Kansas City Chiefs (1-2) at Philadelphia Eagles (1-2) (Red): Ian Eagle, Charles Davis
Cleveland Browns (2-1) at Minnesota Vikings (1-2) (Blue): Kevin Harlan, Trent Green
Tennessee Titans (2-1) at New York Jets (0-3) (Green): Greg Gumbel, Adam Archuleta
Indianapolis Colts (0-3) at Miami Dolphins (1-2) (Yellow): Spero Dedes, Jay Feely
Houston Texans (1-2) at Buffalo Bills (2-1) (Orange): Beth Mowins, Tiki Barber
CBS’ early window is highlighted by the Chiefs’ trip to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles as both teams attempt to snap two-game losing streaks. Browns-Vikings will also get solid distribution in NFC North territory while the other three games are pretty much regional telecasts.
CBS Late Window
Pittsburgh Steelers (1-2) at Green Bay Packers (2-1) (Red): Jim Nantz, Tony Romo
Baltimore Ravens (2-1) at Denver Broncos (3-0) (Blue): Andrew Catalon, James Lofton
CBS’ doubleheader options in the late window are fantastic as most of the country will see the Steelers try to salvage their season in Green Bay against the Packers, marking the first time that Ben Roethlisberger and Rodgers have ever faced off at Lambeau Field. The undercard here is the Ravens trying to knock off the unbeaten Broncos, which will be the regional option with the potential to get picked up for national distribution if the Steelers find themselves on the losing end of a blowout.
Sunday Night Football (NBC)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1) at New England Patriots (1-2): Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth
The most anticipated game of the season thus far doesn’t need an introduction. NBC will be covering Brady’s return to Foxboro as the Buccaneers look to bounce back from a loss in Los Angeles against Bill Belichick and the Patriots.
Monday, Oct. 4
Monday Night Football (ESPN)
Las Vegas Raiders (3-0) at Los Angeles Chargers (2-1): Steve Levy, Brian Griese, Louis Riddick
Week 4 wraps up with the Raiders and Chargers playing at SoFi Stadium with the potential of first place in the AFC West on the line if Denver falls to Baltimore on Sunday. Unfortunately for fans of the Manningcast, the brothers are off until October 25 so that will be three long weeks without Manning hijinks to accompany a Monday night matchup.
