NFL TV Schedule



OK we get it.  Johnathan Manziel is starting at quarterback this coming Sunday for the Browns against the Bengals.  I am also interested in what he can do.  I won’t on the other hand watch the entire game.  And you want to know why?  Because we don’t fucking get that game in this area that’s why!  That and the fact that his entire performance, from passing to running the ball, to how he is on the sideline with coaches and receivers to how much Gatorade he drinks to his pre-game shit will be scrutinized to the nth degree.  Just let the guy play and see how it goes.  This is where I am not so enamored with the NFL media.

Alright enough of Gianni Futbol.  Time for this week’s NFL schedule on TV in Canada (and probably places close by…like northern Montana if people even live there):

8:30 Arizona at St. Louis NFLN/SNE/SNO/SNW/SNP
1:00 Pittsburgh at Atlanta
1:00 Washington at NY Giants FOX (Cornwall, Quebec)/TSN1/TSN3/TSN4/TSN5
1:00 Miami at New England CBS (BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario (except Golden Horseshoe, GTA, Peterborough, & Belleville), Quebec, Eastern Canada)/CTV (Montreal, Vancouver, Alberta, Atlantic)/CITL (Lloydminster)
1:00 Oakland at Kansas City
1:00 Houston at Indianapolis
1:00 Jacksonville at Baltimore
1:00 Green Bay at Buffalo FOX (all of Canada (except Cornwall, Quebec, & Eastern Canada)/CTV (Toronto, Kitchener, Ottawa, Northern Ontario, Winnipeg, Saskatchewan)/CKPR (Thunder Bay)
1:00 Tampa Bay at Carolina
1:00 Cincinnati at Cleveland
4:05 NY Jets at Tennessee
4:05 Denver at San Diego CBS (Golden Horseshoe, GTA, Peterborough, Belleville)/TSN1/TSN3/TSN4/TSN5
4:25 San Francisco at Seattle FOX (BC, Alberta, Golden Horseshoe, GTA, Eastern Ontario (except Ottawa), Quebec, Eastern Canada)/CTV (Toronto, Kitchener, Ottawa, Northern Ontario, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Montreal, Alberta, Saskatchewan)/CTV2 (Atlantic)/CITL (Lloydminster)/CKPR (Thunder Bay)
4:25 Minnesota at Detroit FOX (Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario, Western Ontario, Midwestern Ontario, Ottawa)
8:30 Dallas at Philadelphia NBC/TSN1/TSN3/TSN4/TSN5
8:30 New Orleans at Chicago TSN1/TSN3/TSN4

Jesus Tap Dancing Christ I don’t understand this.  We are back to the point where all teams are playing every week.  So what do we get Sunday afternoon?  Out of the 13 afternoon games, 7 aren’t being broadcast so we can see them.  SEVEN!  That doesn’t even make sense.  Especially since some games, like the aforementioned Battle of Ohio, are pretty important.  And I get that there are some games that even hardcore NFL fans wouldn’t even watch.  So how does it explain us getting a shit sandwich like the Redskins and the Giants this week?

Picks ‘o the Week

Last week was a nice rebound week.  12-3.  I would have killed to have been better since the 11 winners (who picked perfect) each won just under 70 large.  Now that would have been a nice Christmas present.  Alright here are my (hopefully perfect) picks for the week:

Arizona over St. Louis

Pittsburgh over Atlanta

NY Giants over Washington

New England over Miami

Kansas City over Oakland

Indianapolis over Houston

Baltimore over Jacksonville

Green Bay over Buffalo

Tampa Bay over Carolina (to continue the NFC South’s year of misery)

Cleveland over Cincinnati

NY Jets over Tennessee

Denver over San Diego

Seattle over San Francisco

Detroit over Minnesota

Dallas over Philadelphia

New Orleans over Chicago

Since the NFC South has been so bad this season, will the NFL please reform the playoff format?  I believe a division winner should only be guaranteed one of the top five seeds, not one of the top four.  This idiocy of having a .500 or sub-.500 team hosting a playoff game has got to stop.  It is dumb even for the NFL.  If you went by the way I outlined above, instead of Atlanta hosting Seattle (as it is right now), the Falcons would have to travel to the Northwest.  It rewards Seattle for having a good season and doesn’t penalize them for having the audacity to be in the same division as Arizona.

  1. TSN probably picked the Redskins @ Giants game for purposes of simultaneous signal muckatution on Bell Fibe in the province of Quebec (except Gatineau). They picked the WORST 1:00 game this week. Canadian broadcasters CAN’T even show ANYTHING different. The CRTC is supposed to make their Let’s Talk TV findings public on Monday but they have said that “There are numerous interrelated issues that require a few more months of thoughtful consideration.”

    Simsubs are NEVER going to go away in this country. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    The worst part about the NFC South division “winner” getting a home game in the first round of the playoffs this year is that either Seattle, Dallas or Detroit (whichever team is not in the two wildcard positions) is going to be cheated out of a playoff spot. THAT is an embarrassment to the NFL.

    1. Yes it is very much backwards in this country when it comes to broadcasting sports from the U.S. and the simsub issue. If this happened with hockey, the CRTC would have changed IMMEDIATELY. Since it is not, it is put on the backburner. They are all in it together and any change in how television works in Canada would adversely affect the billions that Rogers and Bell get. I know not all of it is television money. But with other services out there, it feels like they are holding on for dear life when it comes to live sports, the last set of programming that isn’t really available here other than through Rogers, Bell, Shaw, etc. Hopefully soon that will change. The world is changing and they need to catch up.

      As for the playoff format, there are too many divisions. Two-thirds of the playoff participants are division champions meaning as long as you beat the rest of the teams in the division, you’re in, regardless of how terrible you truly are. We could be looking at a 6-win division champion making the playoffs this season. And they would get a home game in the first round. Then again, other than getting a team to LA and making sure all the TV money is coming in, the NFL truly doesn’t give a shit when it comes to the state of the game, in all aspects.
