Even without the Seattle Seahawks in action, there is a good slate of Sunday NFL games being televised in the state of Washington. The Seahawks kicked off Week 7 by losing on Thursday night, 13-6, to the St. Louis Rams, but the national schedule features four quality games including a showdown of the only two teams in the AFC with winning records, the Ravens and Texans.
Let's take a look a which games viewers in Washington will see this weekend. All information via The506.com.
CBS Early game: Like most of the country, Washington viewers will see a matchup of two of the NFL's best teams in CBS' morning slot. Joe Flacco, Ray Rice and the Baltimore Ravens travel to take on Arian Foster, Matt Schaub and the Houston Texans. Both teams are 5-1 on the season, tied for the best record in the AFC. That game is scheduled to kick off at 10 a.m. PT from Houston's Reliant Stadium. Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf will have the call on CBS.
CBS Late game: Kicking off at 1:25 p.m. PT, viewers in Washington will see a battle of two high-profile AFC opponents as Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets visit Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Both teams are 3-3, but come into the game off of very different results a week a go. New England is looking to bounce back from a loss at Seattle, while the Jets are hoping to build on their best scoring output in a win over the Indianapolis Colts last week. The play-by-play will be provided by Jim Nantz, while Phil Simms has the color.
FOX Early game: The only game of the day on FOX will be between two of the NFC's most surprising teams, the Arizona Cardinals and Minnesota Vikings, who are both 4-2. The game is scheduled to kick off at 10 a.m. PT from Minnesota's Mall of America Field. Chris Myers and Tim Ryan will be on the call for that one.
NBC Sunday Night Football: The national Sunday night game is between the 2-3 Pittsburgh Steelers and the 3-3 Cincinnati Bengals. The usual crew of Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth will have the call as the game kicks off at 5:20 p.m. PT from Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.
