Week 1 NFL coverage maps: Not many watching Cardinals-Lions
The Arizona Cardinals season opener will be seen by only about five percent of the country on Sunday
Not that it should come as much of a surprise, but the Arizona Cardinals won’t be getting much of a national television audience when they take to the field Sunday afternoon. They host the Detroit Lions at 1:25pm.
The game is on FOX and guess who is calling the game? Our favorites! Dick Stockton and Mark Schlereth. They are nice enough guys, but it got old getting them a lot last year.
Cardinals vs Lions: Coverage Map, announcers
That’s what you get when experts and media don’t expect from you. Also that being said, is it fair to those two to always be assigned to the Cardinals?
Most everyone on the FOX late Sunday window are going to be watching the New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys game. But if you are like millions of NFL fans, you either have NFL Network’s Red Zone channel or Direct TV Sunday Ticket, so you can pretty much still see what you need to of the game.
Even with the debut’s of Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray and head coach Kliff Kingsbury, it still wasn’t enough to get more of the country to get the game over the air. Maybe a few wins to start the season will change that?
At least we don’t have to hear Joe Buck and Troy Aikman drool over the Dallas Cowboys for three hours on Sunday afternoon in Arizona. Same for those of you in Michigan and most of Minnesota and a small corner of Wisconsin.
If you are into the CBS games, their number one team of Jim Nantz and Tony Romo will call the Tennessee Titans-Cleveland Browns game in the early window on Sunday. Phoenix fans will get the CBS early game featuring the Kansas City Chiefs-Jacksonville Jaguars, with the call from Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts.
