NFL Week 18 coverage map: TV show for CBS and Fox regional shows


The busiest Sunday NFL slate of the year is finally here. It’s week 18 and that means 14 of the 16 NFL games this week will be on Sunday, and 13 of them will be in the afternoon.

Week 18 Sunday has so many games available that CBS and Fox will be granted the double header rights. This allows the NFL to balance its schedule and create maximum drama for viewers hoping to watch multiple games.

This week it’s all about determining the playoff final teams and playoff standings. So, expect games with playoff implications to get some major billing (although the Jaguars and Lions may grab attention as they battle it out for the No.1 pick in the NFL Draft. 2022).

CBS action will feature six games this week. Their best early draws are the Ravens-Steelers contest, which has potential playoff implications for both teams, and the Colts-Jaguars game, in which the Colts can land a playoff berth with a win and the Jaguars can. get the No. 1 pick for the second year in a row with a loss.

In the subsequent slate, things will be divided a little more evenly. The Patriots (vs. Dolphins), Buccaneers (vs. Panthers) and Bills (vs. Jets) are all in the playoffs and are just fighting for the standings. The Patriots and Bills still determine who wins the AFC East, so these games could be a bit more contested than the Bucs against an opponent they just beat 32-6 in Week 16.

Meanwhile, Fox will have seven games, one more than CBS, but their first list doesn’t have a lot of playoff implications. The Bengals-Browns game could have an impact on Cincinnati’s playoff standings, but with the Packers having already locked down the No.1 seed, other games will have more significance for draft order purposes.

That said, Fox’s late listing will be much more interesting. The NFC West will be decided, as the Cardinals-Seahawks and 49ers-Rams matches will start at 4:25, and the last NFC Wild Card slot will also be stamped. The 49ers can come in with a win, but if they lose, the Saints would come in with a win. They will be playing against the Falcons during this time.

Below are the full NFL coverage maps for Week 18, along with a list of the major CBS and Fox TV and gaming markets that will be featured in each Sunday.
