NFL Schedule

Full weekend schedule, NFL Week #13; KC at Cincy highlights Sunday afternoon on CBS; Two team byes


  • Arizona and Carolina have byes. As such, there will be 15 NFL games this weekend.
  • CBS has the doubleheader and Fox the singleton.
  • Al Michaels and crew have a good one in and on Prime tonight, Buffalo at New England.
  • Mike Tannenbaum, trying his hand at ESPN, does Washington-Giants game on a limited radio and geographically choppy NFL network. Prior to it, he was an executive for the Jets and then the Dolphins. Steve Levy will be his play-by-play partner.
  • Larry Kahn owns Sports USA and does a good job on radio play-by-play for NFL games to which his company owns the rights. He isn’t bad on-air. But his success is really measured on revenue. He’s built a good business model over the last couple decades. He also has the Staley Cup and some college football games. It’s all about ad sales. Larry knocks on doors successfully. Good for him. This week he calls a dandy, KC at Cincy. I can’t tell you how many stations across America take his games. But others with similar conceptual frameworks are Compass, ESPN and Sports USA. Westwood One has rights too. It buys them directly from the league and include Sunday Nights, Thursday Nights, Monday Nights and all post-season. In other words, it has the Super Bowl with Kevin Harlan.
