Week 14 broadcast maps: Chargers-'Boys dominate; Buck-Aikman fume

Cold, Hard Football Facts for Dec 10, 2009



Our weekly look at the network broadcast distribution of NFL games, courtesy of the gang at the506.com. The broadcast maps provide some interesting insight into which games the networks believe provide the most national interest and value. 
 
Cincinnati-Minnesota is probably the most compelling match-up of the week, pitting, as we noted in our Real and Spectacular Picks, the league's best defense vs. one of the league's most explosive offenses. The game draws the network's No. 2 crew of Gumbel-Dierdorf and widespread distribution across great swaths of the country.
 
There's only one game in town, and that's just the way CBS likes it: Chargers-Cowboys will be seen everywhere but the Nashville market (they're stuck with Rams-Titans on Fox) and will draw CBS's top crew of Nantz-Simms. The Cowboys almost always get the widest distribution of any team and this week's battle of sexy inter-conference contenders will be seen in more markets than any non-primetime game this season. Somewhere in a hotel in Atlanta, Buck-Aikman fume at the indignity of being booted out of their broadcast home.
 
A colorful kaleidoscope of broadcasts, with Saints-Falcons generating coverage across almost all of the Deep South and mountain states, along with Fox's top crew of Buck-Aikman.
