After playing an excruciatingly painful to watch football game last weekend, the Seattle Seahawks and Cincinnati Bengals will get one of the lesser broadcasting teams as they play in week eight. According to The506.com, Bill Macatee will handle the play-by-play duties and Steve Tasker will serve as the analyst.

One cannot blame CBS for not giving the game priority over some of the others being player on Sunday. The headliner is of course the Patriots vs. Steelers matchup, a game seen across the entire country except for various regions with local games in their area. In addition, CBS also has the rights two two AFC South battles between the Jaguars and Texans, as well as the Titans and Colts.

As for the game itself, it's tough to make much of a prediction or outlook for the matchup. The Seahawks have played very well at times this year, but have laid an egg in quite a few weeks as well. The Bengals are a young team looking to improve every week, but inexperience and silly mistakes have plagued them throughout the season.
