GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – With the Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers all playing on Thanksgiving Day, this Sunday’s NFL viewing schedule offers some different looks for the West Michigan market.

FOX has only one game this week, and the pick here was predictable – Minnesota at Atlanta.  Much of the northern half of the country gets this top NFC matchup with Kevin Burkhardt and John Lynch making the broadcast.

CBS has the doubleheader and splits the state at 1:00pm this week.  The West Michigan market gets the Buffalo at Kansas City matchup, while Lansing and further east gets Miami at the N.Y. Jets. The 4:00pm game on CBS is Pittsburgh at Seattle.

The Lions play on Thursday night next week too.
