I will post the coverage maps for the tri-state area the week of the games.  KDKA will obviously show the Steelers/Ravens at 1pm; WKBN may also be compelled to with the Steelers on the road and the Browns at home those quirky secondary market rules might prevent them from showing the Browns game. Local Fox affiliates will probably show either Atlanta/Chicago or Eagles/Rams at 1pm and will likely go with the main doubleheader game of Giants/Redskins at 4:15pm.  And of course there are no late afternoon CBS games because of the US Open tennis.

For my NFL predictions coming Labor Day Weekend.

I haven’t blogged in awhile as I’ve been distracted by other toys like Twitter & Facebook (follow/friend me if you dare), but I plan on posting TV schedules, standings, and playoff pictures this coming football season as I’ve done in the past.  Hooray football!
