NFL Week 5 Coverage Map: TV Schedule for CBS, Regional Fox Shows

The NFL is gearing up for another 12-game slate on Sunday afternoon in Week 5. There are the usual three prime-time games and another game in London that will be played alone on Sunday morning.

As usual, Fox and CBS are sharing their Sunday afternoon game coverage. Since there is an even number of contests this week, they are split into two; Usually, we have an advantage in the number of matches broadcast, but this is not the case this week.

That said, Fox will air a doubleheader in Week 5, while CBS regional coverage will only feature one game. So this is Fox’s week to take the upper hand among the broadcast giants.

Fox will likely rely on some of the NFC’s top teams for Week 5 coverage. The Buccaneers vs. Falcons game is expected to be the headline game in the first window while most Americans will be able to watch Cowboys vs. Rams in the afternoon.

Below is the full NFL coverage map for Week 5, along with a list of major TV markets and CBS and Fox games that will be featured on Sunday.

NFL Week 5 Game TV Schedule

Week 5’s “Sunday Night Football” game will feature an AFC North game between the Ravens and the Bengals. Last season, Cincinnati comfortably beat Baltimore in both meetings between the teams. Joe Burrow thrived against the heavy Ravens defense, but Lamar Jackson will be able to run on the Bengals defense with nose tackle DJ Reader out of action.

“Monday Night Football” is also a division game in Week 5. The Raiders (1-3) will look to upset the Chiefs (3-1) on the road at Arrowhead Stadium. Kansas City won both its meetings with Las Vegas with ease last season, so Josh McDaniels’ team will be out for revenge on this one.
