Will you be able to watch the Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots game on your local CBS affiliate this week? Maybe?
Miami and New England kickoff in the 1pm ET time slot this week, in Foxboro, Massachusetts. You can see the Dolphins/Patriots contest in the map above, from 506sports.com, with the game represented by the areas in blue. The game is spread across the nation, but only in certain regions.
Obviously, the entire New England area, to include all of New York not in the Buffalo or New York City areas, will see the game, as will South Florida. Most of the Florda panhandle, at least west of Jacksonville, will get the game as well. The Jacksonville and Orlando markets will pick up the Jacksonville Jaguars at Baltimore Ravens game, and Tampa will see the Denver Broncos at San Diego Chargers in the late slot (no early CBS game due to NFL rules as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers visit the Carolina Panthers in the early slot on Fox).
Across the rest of the country, the Dolphins at Patriots will air in nearly all of Michigan, down through the border areas of Minnesota and Wisconsin, as well as throughout the Minneapolis area. All of Washington state and nearly all of Oregon will see the game, as will the norther portion of Idaho and a strip of area in northern California. Most of Oklahoma will also get the game, except in the panhandle and along the Red River border with Texas. Hawaii is also scheduled to get this game. Alaska will see the late game between the Denver Broncos and the San Diego Chargers.
Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts will be calling the Dolphins at Patriots contest.
