NFL Week 1 Coverage Map: TV Schedule for CBS, Regional Fox Shows


The long wait for the start of the NFL season is over and fans are going to be ready to watch as much football as possible on the first NFL Sunday of the 2022 season.

The NFL’s First Sunday always contains a busy slate. There will be 13 games during the early and late afternoon windows, while a 14th will take place when “Sunday Night Football” kicks off at 8:20 p.m. ET.

Fans will be able to indulge in plenty of the best matches of the week ahead of this Sunday night clash; the only question is which games will be released in their local markets.

As usual, the Sunday afternoon slate for NFL Week 1 will be split evenly between CBS and Fox. Both networks will air a game in the 1 p.m. ET and 4:25 p.m. ET windows. This is something that doesn’t happen often during the season, as networks tend to alternate between those having a featured game in the 4:25 PM ET slot.

But this week, CBS and Fox want to give consumers as much football as possible.

It’s CBS who will get the best ending in the 13-game division this week. It will air seven games versus the six Fox will get. That said, each network relies primarily on their late game to grow viewership. CBS will air the Cardinals vs. Chiefs game while Fox will look to capitalize on the Vikings vs. Packers game.

The first list is rather mixed, since nine games will be broadcast on both networks at that time. Fox will handle more NFC coverage this week while CBS will show more AFC-centric games.

Below are the full NFL coverage maps for Week 1, along with a list of major TV markets and CBS and Fox games that will be shown on Sunday.
