NFL Week 5 TV Maps Pittsburgh Youngstown Wheeling Areas

CBS has the doubleheader and all local affiliates at 1pm will be showing Tennessee @ Pittsburgh with Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf.  Fox Youngstown and Wheeling will also show a 1pm game of Philadelphia @ Buffalo with Sam Rosen and Brian Billick.  With the Steelers being at home Fox Pittsburgh cannot by rule show a 1pm and will therefore wait until 4:05pm to show Tampa @ San Francisco with Kenny Albert, Moose, and Goose.  At 4:15pm all local CBS affiliates will show the main doubleheader game of the NY Jets @ New England with Jim Nantz and Phil Simms.  And of course the NFL Red Zone Channel will offer its customary continuous live whip around the league all Sunday afternoon (with 6 teams on bye there will be only 11 games during the day on Sunday).  The Sunday Night game on NBC is Green Bay @ Atlanta with Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth and the Monday Night game on ESPN (with or without Hank Williams, Jr) will be Chicago @ Detroit with Mike Tirico, Ron Jaworski, and Jon Gruden.  As always this info from and subject to change.

Later in the season I will compose a separate, and much more in-depth, weekly post with the NFL standings by conference and the playoff picture.  Starting this week for the time being I will go ahead and append to this post the standings in each conference 1-16.  I am ranking teams 1-6 based on how they would be seeded if the playoffs were starting now (which is why undefeated Detroit will be 5th in the NFC, for example) and teams 1-16 based on the tiebreaking formulas as used by the NFL.  For these purposes teams are first ranked 1-4 in their own division  and a team cannot be ahead of another team in the conference standings that it is behind in the division standings.  For division ties I am using head-to-head, division record, common games (games that will be in common amongst division teams by the conclusion of the season), and conference record.  For conference ties I am using head to head and conference record.  As necessary later in the season tiebreakers beyond conference record will be calculated and applied.  So without further preamble:
