The final week of the NFL regular season is upon us!
It was awfully weird not having Thursday Night Football, though the league’s flex scheduling for Week 18 ensured some prime matchups will be seen throughout the weekend.
If you’re here for any of the Saturday games – Steelers-Ravens (4:30 PM EST) and Texans-Colts (8:15 PM EST) will both be aired on ESPN and ABC.
Sunday will feature both CBS and FOX getting games in both the early and late slates.
Thanks to the very good people at 506 Sports, we have coverage maps to help show which areas will watch what matchups throughout Sunday.
Let’s get after it:
Majority of the country will enjoy Jaguars-Titans to begin the day on CBS. Jacksonville can secure the division with a win.
Falcons-Saints will be watched throughout the various corners of the country as well as most of the Southeast. Bengals-Browns is only available in local markets.
Most people will see Bears-Packers in the afternoon CBS slate while the Northeast and all of Texas+Oklahoma will see the Eagles battle the Giants in a NFC East division that’s very much up for grabs.
Neither the Chiefs or Chargers have much to play for, so they’re restricted to (mostly) local viewing.
Switching over to FOX’s early viewing, this will be fairly simple:
If you’re in the Northeast, you’ll see Jets-Patriots.
If you live in the Southeast, you’ll see Buccaneers-Panthers.
If you live anywhere else (barring majority of Oklahoma) you’ll see Lions-Vikings. Minnesota can clinch the NFC North with a win and some extra help.
FOX’s late slate is the lone portion of broadcasts that features four games rather than three.
The entire eastern part of the United States (minus New Orleans) will see Cowboys-Commanders while the West is a little more complicated.
Arizona and most of the PNW will see Cardinals-Seahawks. Colorado and friends just north of them + Las Vegas will see Raiders-Broncos while most of California/Michigan and other greater areas will see Rams-49ers.
Week 18 will conclude with NBC’s coverage of Sunday Night Football as the Bills visit the Dolphins.
