Not another competitive sports event, or some other high rating event. Infomercials. They show the NFL Today pregame show from 9-10, and then it went to infomercials.

They're showing the Bills/Raiders in my area. Infomercials---UGH!

Just as they should. It is the most competitive morning game that CBS has the broadcast rights to. Just out of curiosity, is CBS showing an afternoon game in Western Colorado? There is only one (HOU @ SEA).

Yep...

That's ALSO one of the endless NON-football things that football enthusiasts have to put up with in a NON-football OFF-season.

If the Raiders were playing anyone other than the Bills, the game would surely be televised. Unfreakin believable! Thank God for Red Zone.
Itís because you have Houston @ Seattle, the late game. Fox has the double header this week.

RE: CBS--Speaking of infomercials () they have a few of them in the 2 p.m. time slot. FOX is showing Cowboys and the Redskins.

Sunday Ticket w DirecTV. Only way to football season. I keep them on my payroll all year long for Broncos football and Broncos football only.

FWIW your Bills are looking pretty good.

Why can't both channels have double headers every week? There never seems to be a problem showing every college football game under the sun on Saturday's. Is there something in the channels contract where FOX and CBS have to be in a 2-1 or 1-2 format? Why not 2-2 every week? Why have an NFL Today program and then drift off into something else when the games start? Kind of retarded if you ask me.

And you would think the affiliates would make more a stink about this. Your local CBS would definitely have gotten higher ratings showing this game than an infomercial but CBS and the NFL wonít let them.

We have Golf's Best 2017 in Phoenix. I get stuck watching a poor FOX broadcast of Bears v Saints.

Process of the Catch strikes again! Refs robbed Zach Miller of a TD on a play where his knee/leg was destroyed. How long are these guys supposed to hold the ball?
