NFL Week 7 TV coverage maps
Thursday, Oct. 21
Thursday Night Football (FOX/NFL Network)
Denver Broncos (3-3) at Cleveland Browns (3-3): Joe Buck, Troy Aikman
This week’s Thursday night matchup features the struggling Denver Broncos traveling to the Dawg Pound to take on the banged-up Cleveland Browns. Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt will both be out for the Browns, which could give the Broncos a chance to steal an ugly game on the road.
Sunday, Oct. 24
Washington Football Team (2-4) at Green Bay Packers (5-1) (Red): Joe Davis, Greg Olsen
Carolina Panthers (3-3) at New York Giants (1-5) (Green): Adam Amin, Mark Schlereth
Atlanta Falcons (2-3) at Miami Dolphins (1-5) (Orange): Chris Myers, Daryl Johnston

Detroit Lions (0-6) at Los Angeles Rams (5-1) (Yellow, 4:05 p.m.): Kevin Kugler, Mark Sanchez
FOX has the singleheader this week with most of its audience getting Washington’s trip to Green Bay in the 1:00 window. The rest of the action is primarily regionalized with the Eagles-Raiders matchup in the 4:05 window as arguably the best game on a weak slate.
CBS (Early Window)
Kansas City Chiefs (3-3) at Tennessee Titans (4-2) (Red): Ian Eagle, Charles Davis
Cincinnati Bengals (4-2) at Baltimore Ravens (5-1) (Blue): Kevin Harlan, Trent Green
New York Jets (1-4) at New England Patriots (2-4) (Green): Andrew Catalon, James Lofton
CBS has two strong games in its early window but will send Chiefs-Titans to the vast majority of the country while Bengals-Ravens goes to AFC North territories. The other game in the window is Jets-Patriots, which won’t leave the Northeast.
CBS (Late Window)
Chicago Bears (3-3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-1) (Red): Jim Nantz, Tony Romo
Houston Texans (1-5) at Arizona Cardinals (6-0) (Blue): Greg Gumbel, Adam Archuleta
The main doubleheader game is Chicago’s trip to Raymond James Stadium to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which will go to the vast majority of the country. The other game CBS has here is Houston traveling to play the undefeated Arizona Cardinals which won’t be seen outside of local markets.
Sunday Night Football (NBC)
Indianapolis Colts (2-4) at San Francisco 49ers (2-3): Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth
Sunday night will see the Colts look to continue their recent surge by picking up a win against the 49ers. Al Michaels is back on the call after getting a week off in Week 6.
Monday, Oct. 25
Monday Night Football (ESPN)
New Orleans Saints (3-2) at Seattle Seahawks (2-4): Steve Levy, Brian Griese, Louis Riddick
The Monday night matchup has lost some of its luster with Russell Wilson out indefinitely, leaving Geno Smith to quarterback the Seahawks. The good news is that the Manningcast is back so fans can be entertained watching Peyton and Eli’s hijinks during a ho-hum game.
