Huh, that's a bit surprising, no?

I see now that it's on the schedule that way, but thought NFC contests were always on FOX. Hmmm...

Cross-flex scheduling is a new thing.
The question is, are the Pats playing at the same time

Oh, the challenges of rooting for an out-of-market team.

New this year? Guess I missed the news on this somehow. Probably saw it and as I'm now getting older completely forgot about it.

To be honest, it makes sense that they would do something like this. It's got to help when there are multiple good games available in one conference and none in the other.
I'll be in Vancouver for this one.

Great to see the Giants got the "D" team on the broadcast.

CBS must not be impressed with the 1-5 record.

Cross network scheduling has been going on for a few years now.

Usually happens a few times a season. I believe this is the first time it's occurred for the Giants though.
For out of market people the CabS 4pm game is

And the jets game at 1: 00 o'clock

is on Fox. It does seem strange.
They've been flexing between networks for a couple of years now.

Wasn't Jets-Browns on Fox a couple of weeks ago? And now Jets-Miami is on Fox again.

They probably want Seattle on in the 4 pm time slot since they're a west coast team, but Fox doesn't have the doubleheader and already has one late game, and CBS has the doubleheader and thus more flexibility.

its been going on for 3-4 years
I guess I've not paid as much attention to it...

around the league because I mostly watch only the Giants live now. I watch other games on GamePass in the condensed version, so I pay very little attention to the announcers.

On a rare occasion that I watch another team live, it's almost always a competitive NFC East opponent, and it seems like they've just pretty much always been on FOX.

New England is getting CIN @ PIT instead of the Giants. Online stream it is!
