    Television Coverage for Week 7, Jets at Patriots
    By: John Morgan

    The stars align in a favorable position this week for out of town Pats fans as 92% of the US will be able to see the Patriots play the Jets next Sunday from the comfort of their own couch, even without a subscription to the Sunday Ticket....

    Don't even need to click the link. Sadly, the Jaguars are playing at 4:00 as well. Off to the bar for me...

    Maybe it'll be blacked out?

    It must be rare to have the entire national spotlight during daylight hours...

    I wonder how often one single non-prime time Sunday game has reached as much as 92% of all viewers nationwide.

    I recall a 4PM Colts-Patriots Brady-Manning dual a few years back that may have approached this, but it must be not common.

    blackout = no game shown at all

    No such luck. The Jags are never blacked out.

    While this could be a great PR opportunity to remind everyone what the Pats are capable of, it could also spell disaster… if somehow (however remotely) the Pats choke for some odd goddamn reason that I can’t even think of, and the Jets end up winning. We will look like the biggest joke of the league to have just lost to that green garbage at home on national stage.

    506 maps are up.

    the506.com - 2012 week 7

    bottom line: Unless you're within a 90 minute drive of Jacksonville or San Francisco, you get Pats-Jets at 4:25.

    :cool:

    I hope the Pats get a big lead quickly sunday. I don't know how much I can take of Nantz and Simms fawning over the Jets...

    That first map (early game on CBS) in inaccurate. I live 40 minutes north-east of NYC, and I will be watching the Ravens @ Texans game - according to my cable provider (Cablevision).

    The map shows blackout in the NYC metro area.

    I don't know about that.... I find Simms always have something good to say about the Pats.

    Nantz is a douche, I agree.

    Stupid Raiders and the "85% capacity gets the blackout lifted" rule this year. Thought this was a sure-fire weekend to see the Pats.

    Chris, Is the blackout lift official? I live in Sacramento and like you was thinking there was no way the Jags were going to get the game on local. Since there's only 2 games at this time, I'm assuming the redzone will show plenty of Pats/Jets.

    I could not find official information on the blackout being lifted, but assume it will be. 85% is a threshold the Raiders should be able to meet for every game, even the Jags.

    Update: Received a one-day extension to reach the threshold (boo!)

    Regards,
    Chris

    I'll be in Williamsburg VA this weekend with the kids for an Irish dance competition,
    so I'm glad to be able to DVR the game, because we likely won't be back in Hershey
    til late Sunday night. I've already told friends & family up in Boston not to contact me
    until I contact them first. It's blackout time, again.

    Only 2 NFL games this Sunday at 4

    Pats play the Rexs and the Raiders play the Jags.... With there being a Thursday night game and 6 times having a bye this week, there are very few games this weekend.

    Roger Godell needs to revisit the scheduling, it sucks so far this year

    Fox moved all of their games to 1PM in order to televise baseball at 4:30,

    which won't even happen if the Cardinals win tonight

    Hopefully we'll all be watching CBS switch over to the Jags Raiders by 6:30 after the Pats have built an 80 point lead going into the 4th Qu. ;)

    Re: Only 2 NFL games this Sunday at 4

    Since the Patriots are on late I'm curious why there only being two NFL late games is considered to be a bad thing?

    Some people take the NY Jets boycott to an extreme.

    Re: Only 2 NFL games this Sunday at 4

    Im glad there's only two, this means I'll actually be able to watch the game since no one cares about the Jags or Raiders. I had to miss Broncos Patriots for freaking Viking-Titans the other week. I know I live only four hours away from Minneapolis but that's rediculous.

    I'm not bothered by it.

    I think CBS must be overjoyed.
