Am I getting the Dolphins game? We have the answer

The Miami Dolphins head to the Windy City this weekend to face the Chicago Bears in a Week 7 showdown. The 1pm ET kickoff will be televised by CBS this week, but will you get the game? Thanks to, we can give you an answer.

The game marks the second straight week the AFC East Dolphins will face an NFC North opponent, having lost last week to the Green Bay Packers on a last second touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers. While that game was the national game for Fox, this week's game gets some strange placements. As the map above shows (with the game represented in blue), most of Florida, minus the Jacksonville market, will carry the game, as will the Chicago area. Then there is the random South Dakota, western North Dakota, and Arizona coverage as well.

The game announcers will be Greg Gumbel and Trent Green.

If you are not in the blue, NFL Sunday Ticket (which can be streamed online with a subscription) will have the game. Or, you will have to head to a sports bar.

Over on Fox, who has the doubleheader coverage this week, most of Florida will get the Carolina Panthers at Green Bay Packers game in the early slot, with no game coverage pitted against the Jaguars in the Jacksonville market, and the panhandle split between the Atlanta Falcons at Baltimore Ravens and the New Orleans Saints at Detroit Lions games. With just two late games on Fox this week, the entire country outside of Arizona, Northern California, and San Diego markets will see the New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys game. Most of Arizona and NorCal will see the Arizona Cardinals at Oakland Raiders, while San Diego does not get a Fox game because CBS will be airing the Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers game.

We will have everything you need to watch the game later in the week.
