FOX 17 – The Detroit Lions are on a bye this week, but we’ll still have one of our local favorites on Sunday afternoon.

In the West Michigan market, we’ll have the Chicago Bears visiting the Miami Dolphins at 1:00 p.m. Many of you may see the Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota Vikings in your online guides or cable channel schedule for our area, but Fox made the change this week. Those online and cable guides are actually published weeks ago when it isn’t definitive which network gets which games.  Since the Bears are our #2 team (behind the Lions), we’ll see them this week.  Vikings (and Kirk Cousins) fans will have to head to their local sports bar or have the NFL Sunday Ticket to watch that one.

CBS has the double header this week, and our market will get the Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals at 1:00 p.m.  and the Jacksonville Jaguars at Dallas Cowboys at 4:25 p.m.

Of course, football actually starts Thursday night on Fox right now, with the Philadelphia Eagles taking on the New York Giants at 8:00 p.m.

And, no football on Fox on Saturday this weekend, but we will have baseball! Game 2 of the NCLS between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers will be Saturday afternoon at 4:00 p.m.
