GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – So, last week’s Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers game did end up as one of the more fun games to watch of the week.
This week, with the Lions hosting an AFC team, our boys move over to CBS for the 1:00pm matchup versus the Oakland Raiders. Another area favorite, the Chicago Bears, are also hosting an AFC team, so they are on CBS, but only in the Chicago area and northern Indiana and far SW Michigan.
Here on FOX 17, we get the Washington Redskins visiting the Carolina Panthers at 1:00pm and then the big FOX telecast with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman at 4:00pm with the Green Bay Packers visiting the Minnesota Vikings in a clash between the top two teams in the NFC North.
Now originally, back at the beginning of the season, FOX was planning on sending our market the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins at 1:00pm, but changed that plan this past Tuesday. You may find some guides that are published by third party sites, like the one that feeds our program schedule on FOX17online, didn’t get the update, but we will be showing the Redskins and Panthers at 1:00pm. We apologize to anyone wanting to see the return of Tony Romo.
