It's quite an interesting week on the NFL scheduling front. Thanks to the A's playoff game on Saturday night, Chargers-Raiders is moved from a 4 ET kickoff on CBS to an 11:35 ET kickoff on NFL Network. CBS's Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts will still call the game. Another ripple from that move is the fact that Cowboys-Broncos on CBS will now air to 100% of the country in the late afternoon window.
Maybe Fox can loan them their silly America's Game of the Week title for a week.

I'm surprised Gumbel and Dierdorf aren't calling the Baltimore game. Wonder if CBS is looking to shake things up?

Except in Phoenix.
