NFL coverage map Week 2: NFL TV map, broadcast info for Sunday’s games

Here is the NFL coverage map for Week 3.

The 2023 NFL season is underway with football fans tuning in every Thursday, Sunday and Monday to watch some of their favorite teams. While NFL Sunday Ticket is gaining popularity, the NFL coverage map is a guide that all football fans need.

While every NFL game is on television, many are on at the same time. As a result, TV networks and league officials agree to have certain teams broadcasted in certain markets. The NFL TV map shows you what games are being played in your area. The NFL broadcast map changes each week and we’ll provide you with updates throughout the season.

GREENRavens @ BenalsCBS1:00 PM ETAndrew Catalon, Tiki Barber, Matt Ryan
YELLOWChargers @ TitansCBS1:00 PM ETTom McCarthy, James Lofton, Jay Feely

Kansas City Chiefs vs Jacksonville Jaguars – CBS – 1 PM ET

The best game on CBS in Week 2 is the Kansas City Chiefs vs Jacksonville jaguars. It’s a matchup between two-time MVP Patrick Mahomes and 2023 MVP candidate Trevor Lawrence, with a game script that projects for a shootout. This should be one of the highest-scoring games on Sunday.

Baltimore Ravens vs Cincinnati Bengals – CBS – 1 PM ET

Neither the Baltimore Ravens nor Cincinnati Bengals enter this matchup at their best. The Ravens will be without Marlon Humphrey, Marcus Williams, J.K. Dobbins and Ronnie Stanley, while the Bengals are coming off one of their worst performances in the last three years. One thing to keep in mind, Baltimore held Joe Burrow under a 90 QB rating in three games last season.

Las Vegas Raiders vs Buffalo Bills – CBS – 1 PM ET

The Buffalo Bills enter as heavy favorites and this should be a get-right game for quarterback Josh Allen. However, Buffalo’s run defense proved to be a glaring issue in Week 1 and during the preseason, providing an avenue for the Las Vegas Raiders to control the clock with Josh Jacobs. It’s not one of the most popular games on Sunday’s schedule, but this should be a competitive contest.

Los Angeles Chargers vs Tennessee Titans – CBS – 1 PM ET

Not only are the Los Angeles Chargers likely missing Austin Ekeler (ankle) on Sunday, but they’re facing the best run defense in the NFL over the last two years. Expect Chargers’ offensive coordinator Kellen Moore to let Justin Herbert air it out a lot, attacking a weak Titans’ secondary that is also dealing with injuries. Los Angeles should also have an advantage defensively, with Tennessee weighed down by one of the NFL’s worst offensive lines.

For those surrounding Colorado and in the Maryland area, you’ll get the Washington Commanders vs Denver Broncos with Spero Dedes and Adam Archuleta on the call. The Broncos are three-point favorites, but will be without tight end Greg Dulcich.

National NFL broadcasts for Week 2

Here are the NFL games on national television for Week 2. Things are a bit different this week because there are two Monday Night Football games. Both games are available nationally, but they’ll be broadcast on different networks.

  • Sunday Night Football: Miami Dolphins vs New England Patriots – NBC
  • Monday Night Football: New Orleans Saints vs Carolina Panthers – ESPN (7:15 PM)
    • Broadcasters: Chris Fowler, Louis Riddick, Dan Orlovsky
  • Monday Night Football: Cleveland Browns vs Pittsburgh Steelers – ABC (8:15 PM)
    • Broadcasters: Joe Buck, Troy Aikman

Because there are two Monday Night Football games in Week 2, there is no ManningCast. The ManningCast on ESPN2 will return on Monday, October 2 for a matchup between the Seattle Seahawks vs New York Giants.
