NFL and/or networks stopped releasing the info?

Dunno - but this new page is borderline pointless.

I was thinking the maps didn't go up until Wednesday night, but I could be wrong.

1pm CBS game is still TBA here, it's possible they just don't have the info needed to make the maps yet. Here's hoping we get the old style back :)

It says in the comments that the map should be released "within 24 hours." That was 12 hours ago.

i dont know how anyone deals without the ticket even if you live in the city of your favorite team

i live just outside of Philly and obviously get Eagles every week but also forced to deal with a lot of Ravens and Steelers games

I live in philly and always have great options...mcfaddens in no. libs is the official bills backers meeting place with plenty of bills compadres and buffalo centric food, including blue & blue light, anchor bar wings, and garbage plates.

when i don't feel like trekking into the city, my little gin joint always has a tv available for me and it's a 5 minute walk there and usually a 10 minute stumble back.

I used to date a girl in Philly, when I'd visit we would go to McFaddens, it's awesome. I was there for the win against the Pats and hurt my neck (not my throat!) yelling so hard hah.

CBS is broadcasting tennis at 4:00 so they don't want any late games this week.  If you have two sites that you're confident will sell out, so no blackouts, two is plenty.  Granted nicer for ST folks to have more choices, but recall other weeks were like that too.

The only conclusion I can draw from this link is they aren't sure which game to show at 1:00.

Looking at the matchups I see why.

The one good thing golden boy Brady can be good for is getting the bills pats on TV here in DC.

I stream Directv but the quality is always better when locally televised...

The problem isnt with CBS---but with FOX.   Alot of the stations are undecided.

s of now

much of the nation is getting CIN @ CHI
OAK-IND traditional OAK and IND areas along with Houston
NE-BUF   NY and NE
TEN-PIT---much of the east coast and south through Miss
KC-JAX traditional KC and JAX markets
MIA-CLE is south FL and N Ohio. Right now the panhandle is also for this game but I could see Tallahassee flipping to the Buffalo game

Their are so many 1pm games because CBS airs the mens final of the US Open at 4:30.  Thus, exclusivity rules are lifted in some markets. Starting in 2015 CBS doesnt have the US open finals---ESPN has excluive rights and they may contract out some coverage to CBS.  ESPN also may have the tournament change its start time so the finals weekend doesnt happen the same weekend as NFL season kicks off.

As of FOX coverage right now....early game.

DET-MIN   most of the great lakes and midwest
SEA-CAR...carolinas and much of the western US.
ATL-NO...LA, Vegas, parts of northern california, much of the SE US. TX, OK, NM, CO, ME, RI
TB-Jets....much of FL, NY, NE and scranton PA.

Outside of traditional markets (primary, secondary, and tertiary) stations usually dont decide until Tuesday or Wedensay morning the week before the game.

This week FOX has been the hangup.

Why does Austin TX get Bills, Pats.  Is that strange to anybody else?

Heh, guess the various TV guides around here are late to the game :)

Lame... good thing I got that DTV package with Madden!

Nah... Dallas plays Sunday night, Houston on Monday night, so the station there probably gets to pick the game they show. Look at the map, just north of there is getting Miami/Cleveland, and to the east is Oakland/Indy.
