NFL Week 16 coverage map: TV show for CBS and Fox regional shows


Week 16 is another week that brings a lot of NFL action with it. There’s another 16-game roster that includes the last “Thursday Night Football” game of the year, two Christmas Day games on Saturday, and another busy NFL roster on Sunday.

We plan to have an 11-game roster on Sunday in week 16. We’ll see if that actually happens, as last week’s 11-game roster has been reduced to nine after a few COVID-related postponements, but it At least that’s what the NFL currently has planned.

CBS will get a lot of the action in Week 16, as they have the rights to air the double show this time around. CBS will focus on a few key AFC games – Bills at Patriots and Steelers at Chiefs – in the 1 p.m. ET and 4:25 p.m. ET windows respectively. These will be the biggest audience drivers, with the Bills-Patriots game, which could play a big part in AFC East’s decision, being the game of the reign.

NFL Week 16 Gameplay TV Schedule

Below are the Sunday afternoon games that will be broadcast regionally. “Sunday Night Football” will feature a rivalry game between the Cowboys and Washington. The Cowboys will have a chance to formally wrap up the NFC East with a win as Washington look to play the spoiler and get back into the playoff race.

“Monday Night Football” will feature an interesting competition between the Dolphins and the Saints. New Orleans have home advantage and a formidable defense, but will they be able to move the ball on a Miami defense that is strong in itself? It could be a defensive battle between the two teams, 7-7 who are each looking to squeeze into the playoff picture.
