Two games that have huge NFC playoff implications will be shown in Sioux Falls, while the third game features the worst team in the NFL.

Minnesota Vikings fans this week will be jumping over to CBS/KELO-TV for their game against Carolina. While it is weird for two NFC teams to play against each other on CBS, it isn't as taboo as it use to be. The NFL instituted the cross-flex system starting in 2014 that allowed AFC/AFC games to air on FOX or NFC/NFC games to air on CBS. The main reason being to allow local affiliates of both to see a local team at least once per year. Minnesota and Carolina was originally set to air on CBS when the schedule was released and it never moved.

That opens the 12:00 window on FOX, and locally that usually means that we jump to the Green Bay Packers. That is the case again this week as FOX/KTTW will have the Packers/Browns game.

FOX has this week's doubleheader and this week's main 3:25 game features the Eagles and Rams. Everyone in the country outside of the pacific northwest, Nashville, and Jacksonville areas will be receiving the Eagles/Rams game.

Pittsburgh and Baltimore will meet as scheduled during Sunday Night Football on NBC. New England travels to Miami on Monday Night to cap off the week.

If you’re ever curious about which games will be shown in the area, there are a couple of places you can find listings. First, my personal favorite, NFL distribution maps are put out by the staff at 506Sports. KTTW and KELO-TV also both list the scheduled games on their respective webpages. As a reminder, all games are subject to change (but rarely do).
