Southern exposure for Week 11
By Pat Yasinskas
The suddenly-surging New Orleans Saints will play to the largest audience of any NFC South team on Sunday.
Take a look at the map of which games will be broadcast in which areas on Sunday and follow the yellow that represents the game between the Saints and Raiders. The late-afternoon game on FOX, with Dick Stockton and John Lynch announcing, will get much more than just regional play. Aside from Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, the game will be available in a large part of Texas, much of California and Nevada, a few pockets in the Midwest and in New York City and surrounding areas.
The 1 p.m. games between the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Arizona Cardinals and Atlanta Falcons won’t get nearly as much exposure.
Chris Myers and Tim Ryan will call the game between the Bucs and Panthers, which will air only in the Carolinas and parts of Florida.
The game between the Falcons and Cardinals will feature Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston and Tony Siragusa. That game will be available only in Georgia, most of Arizona and parts of Alabama and Tennessee.
