Southern exposure for Week 10
By Pat Yasinskas
Time for our weekly look at where the NFC South games will be televised Sunday.
Let’s turn to the maps on the506.com for visual assistance. You might need to put on some reading glasses to find the yellow areas where the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Houston Texans will be televised.
The game is not sold out, so it will be blacked out in the Tampa Bay area. The game will air in a small portion of South Florida and a stretch of North Florida and Southern Georgia. It will get better play in East Texas and Western Louisiana. But much of Florida will be watching the game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Indianapolis Colts.
The game between Carolina and Tennessee also isn’t getting great exposure. It will be shown in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and in a couple patches in Mississippi and Alabama.
But the first-place showdown between New Orleans and Atlanta will get huge exposure. It will be carried through almost the entire country, except the markets where other FOX games include teams from those markets.
