Week 3 of the 2012 NFL season is upon us, and there are plenty of intriguing games on the slate. In addition to the usual 49ers and Raiders games being broadcast across the Bay Area, football fans will also get a look at No. 1 pick Andrew Luck. Let's take a look at the full TV schedule for Sunday.
CBS Early Game: The Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars will be featured on CBS beginning at 10 a.m. PT in the Bay Area. Luck is 1-1 thus far in his rookie campaign and has looked just as good as he did during his days with the Stanford Cardinal. The Jaguars feature star tailback Maurice Jones-Drew and young QB Blaine Gabbert. Bill Macatee and Steve Tasker will handle the broadcasting duties.
CBS Late Game: Beginning at 1:25 p.m. PT, the Oakland Raiders and Pittsburgh Steelers will play on CBS.
