NFL doubleheader on FOX this week

Posted at 3:18 PM, Sep 18, 2015

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The NFL TV broadcast schedule this week does give the Grand Rapids market three games this Sunday afternoon.

On FOX 17, the Detroit Lions take on the Minnesota Vikings at 1:00pm and the Dallas Cowboys visit the Philadelphia Eagles in the 4:00pm nationally broadcast game.   Since FOX gets the doubleheader this week, there is only a 1:00pm game on CBS and the Grand Rapids market gets the New England at Buffalo game.

Now if you were in the Detroit market, NFL rules say that you also don’t get a game competing against your home market team, so viewers from Lansing to east don’t get a 1:00pm game on CBS, but they do get a 4:00pm game, which is Baltimore at Oakland.

Lions Game Day airs at 11:00am on FOX 17, followed by the NFL on FOX at Noon.  After football and the OT, non-football fans can enjoy the 67th Annual Emmys from 8:00pm until 11:00pm.
