CBS has the doubleheader. Fox the single game. Fox also has a Monday game at 5 p.m. and a Tuesday game at 8:05 p.m. Kevin Burkhardt/Daryl Johnston and Joe Buck/Troy Aikman teams moved to Monday and Tuesday games respectively.
Al Michaels returns Sunday night after Mike Tirico worked last two NBC games.
Washington at Pittsburgh, 5 p.m. on Tuesday the 7th was originally scheduled for Dec. 6 but was moved due to other schedule changes related to Ravens’ COVID-19 outbreak.
Dallas at Baltimore originally scheduled for Dec. 3 was moved due to Ravens’ COVID-19 outbreak.
Only four Sunday Fox games. 11 Sunday afternoon games in all, 7 on CBS. There are 7 in early window, 4 in the late.
Beth Mowins who’s worked the NFL in the past has been assigned the Jacksonville at Minnesota game on CBS. Her partner is Jay Feely who teamed with Tom McCarthy in an earlier game this season. Feely kept interrupting Tom. It was tough on the ears.
The Byes: Carolina, Tampa Bay
This NFL season has felt like a journey.
The local radio broadcasters are still working road games for the most part remotely. Has to be a sterile feeling.
CBS has the Super Bowl this year and they’re already 80% sold out.
From Sports Media Watch re; Thanksgiving games:
“The Washington-Dallas NFL Thanksgiving Day game averaged a 12.0 rating and 30.33 million viewers on FOX, ranking as television’s most-watched program since the Super Bowl.” Furthermore, “Earlier in the day, Texans-Lions averaged 23.39 million on CBS — the least-watched Thanksgiving afternoon game since 2009.”
