NFL Week 4 TV coverage maps for the Bay Area, featuring the 49ers bouncing back from their first loss and the Raiders trying to string together back-to-back wins.
Week 3 provided mixed results for Bay Area NFL teams; the Oakland Raiders won their first game of the season while the San Francisco 49ers dropped their first of the year. The network TV schedule for Week 4 will give Bay Area fans a chance to see both teams in action.
Let's take a look at the games on the schedule for Bay Area NFL fans to watch this Sunday.
FOX Early Game: The 49ers, coming off their first loss of the season, will travel east to take on Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets. The battle of 2-1 teams will kick off at 10 a.m. PT. Kenny Albert and Daryl Johnston will call the game from the booth with Tony Siragusa providing additional commentary.
FOX Late Game: For most of the country, including all of California the late matchup on FOX will be a battle of under-performing teams between the 0-3 New Orleans Saints and the Green Bay Packers who are 1-2 after losing at the last second last week. The game will pit two of the league's top quarterbacks, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers, against each other. Joe Buck and Troy Aikman will have the call from Lambeau Field, starting at 1:25 p.m. PT.
CBS Late Game: Starting at 1:05 p.m. PT, Bay Area viewers will see the Raiders go on the road to take on the Denver Broncos. The 1-2 Raiders are looking to build on the momentum of their 34-31 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. Denver is also 1-2 after losing two consecutive games. Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will call the game from Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
NBC Sunday Night Football: Sunday Night Football features the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants traveling to take on the Philadelphia Eagles. Both teams are 2-1, but the Eagles have struggled on offense, failing to score a touchdown last weekend in the loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The game kicks off at 5:20 p.m. PT with the usual Sunday night crew of Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth on the call.
