Default Televised Football games in RI

I just moved to Providence, RI and with the football season beginning next week I grew curious of what teams are televised. I know NBC and ESPN televise Sunday and Monday Night Football but what / how many games does FOX and CBS show each weekend? It seems as though the Patriots are the team of Providence but do they show two AFC and two NFC games each sunday?

To go along with this topic - Are there any bars/places that televise all the games?

I am new to RI myself, so I can only tell you what I think..there are alot of bars downtown, but I'm 100% sure that every bar that has a TV in RI will definately have the Patriot games on....On every TV...that's just my guess....I don't blame them, their team plays great football...

You will find Football at every bar or pub that has a TV. I would usually go to someone house to watch a game if I could not make it in person. Daves bar and grill in warwick is pretty cool (good food, contests, and tvs). Most people there are in their 20's and 30's. Other then the Pats, they will sometimes air NY teams or a random good game. For college, they air Boston College.

Most sports bars will have multiple games. Hooters, Dave's, etc. On regular(non cable) and local cable they will show 4 games every Sunday, 2 AFC and 2 NFC. This is subject to black outs, but all Pats games are sold out. Providence is the closest city to Foxboro and has been the host city for the Pats for NFC playoff games. Most away teams fly into Providence and stay downtown before the Sunday game. The Pats also fly out of T.F. Green with rare exceptions.

Im really interested in Miami v NY Jets this weekend but they play at 1:00, same time as the Patriots, so I feel as though there is a slim chance I'll be able to catch it anywhere. I was hoping that a DaveBusters-like place may host multiple games using DirectTV's NFL Ticket. A few bars/restaraunts had it in Albany, NY so I had my fingers crossed for something similar here. I'll try to check-out some places before sunday to find out. Thanks a lot for the input.
