    According to the TV map I saw you are suppose to get the game down there.

    Don't forget, it's on Fox not CBS.

    where are you in the carolinas? There's a pats fanclub in Raleigh somewhere, there might be a Wild Wing (or some other bar with Sunday Ticket), and I'm almost sure that everyone will have Bears-Pats except people in the locality of the other game... that's how they do the doubleheader, right?

    I just checked the paper and its not on.
    Helping the wife put up the tree today. I'll have to jump online and read what's happening I guess.
    If they has a good game on it wouldn't bother me but there are not many WEST coast fans here in Carolina. Lots of Skin fans here.

    i'll try and save u man:
    sopcast.com

    channel: 12993

    try that. if your sopcast doesnt run try the installing webplayer instead on the site. the channel wont work till game time..quality isnt that bad i hope..and its all free but a little behind..like 1 play delay usually but its a lot better than no game man

    Carolinatony:

    For reasons that make little sense to me, it's the away team that determines which network carries the game. Since the Bears are NFC, it goes to FOX.

    Actually, the game was supposed to be on 1 PM on CBS. But when it got flexed to 4:15 along with OAK/SD and NYG/TEN, CBS got OAK/SD, and Fox got NYG/TEN and CHI/NE.

    EDIT: Actually, I think CBS already had OAK/SD as their singleheader game, but at 4:00 instead. Remember that FOX and CBS switch off every week, and this week was FOX's for a doubleheader.

    go to NFL.com http://www.nfl.com/

    Click scores, then under Pats/ Bears click the link for live game stats (i think its stats) but one of the links under Pats/ Bears will give you play by play (text) with a team helmut graph showing drives. It was the only way for me to keep updated on the Chiefs Broncos game last thursday after work.

    The Raider game cannot be on Fox. Fox can't show a regular season game between 2 AFC teams. Turn on Fox at 4:15 and you should be pleasantly surprised.

    For all you people who aren't getting the Pats game @ 4:00...Write a nasty letter (or email) to your local Fox affiliate. They really do listen. They're all about ratings so the more people who complain, the next time a marquee game comes up you won't be stuck with a crappy Raiders game. It won't help you this week but it will in the future.

    FOX always had this game. Visiting team ALWAYS determines which of CBS or FOX gets a game. The reason is that all games are televised and if the home team is not sold on they could be blacked out, and the game might not be carried anywhere. It's been this way forever.

    In this particular case you are mostly wrong. This is the FOX national game, the only people not getting it are the home teams of the other FOX 4PM game (NYG and TEN). That only exeception is Philadelphia and eastern PA, but my guess is that the ratings might be higher in PHilly for the Giants because they are perennial rivals.
