NFL Week 13 TV Maps for Pittsburgh/Youngstown/Wheeling Area

The action starts with a game Thursday night on the NFL Network at 8:20pm; NY Jets vs Buffalo at Toronto, Ontario with Bob Pappa and Matt Millen on the call. On CBS Pittsburgh and Wheeling will show a 1pm game Oakland @ Pittsburgh with Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf. However Youngstown will wait until 4:05pm to show San Diego @ Cleveland with Kevin Harlan and Solomon Wilcots. It will be interesting to monitor how WKBN handles this the rest of the season being a secondary market for both the Browns and Steelers. Also my understanding is there is a chance the game will fail to sell out though I do believe Youngstown is outside the blackout zone and would therefor be unaffected. Fox has the doubleheader and at 1pm Wheeling and Youngstown will show Detroit @ Cincinnati with Thom Brennaman and Brian Billick. Pittsburgh due to the Steelers being at home per NFL blackout rules will not show a 1pm game, though they will come on the air promptly at 4pm and the Fox network will route Fox 53 to whatever game it deems most compelling at that time. At 4:15 all local Fox affiliates will show the main doubleheader game which is Dallas @ NY Giants with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. Cleveland Fox is currently listed for no game for the same blackout rules described above, though they would come back on the air at 7pm with the end of this game or the end of Seattle/San Francisco. And, if the Browns do fail to sell out the Fox restriction will get lifted in this timeslot. As usual the NFL Red Zone Channel will be on all afternoon with its customary continuous live whip around the league. The Sunday Night game on NBC is Minnesota @ Arizona with Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth and the Monday Night game on ESPN is Baltimore @ Green Bay with Mike Tirico, Ron Jaworski, and Jon Gruden. As always this info courtesy of and subject to update. Enjoy the games!
