The vast majority of the country won’t be getting a late game on CBS this week. That leaves just the Lions-Bears game and Giants-49ers game to divide football fans’ attention. If you’re a Lions fan between Michigan, Ohio and Kentuck and the Dakotas, Nebraska and Kansas then you’re in luck. You will get the Lions game, as will fans in Arizona and the central Gulf coast of Florida based on the current coverage map.
The Soldier Field television broadcast booth will be filled by Thom Brennaman, who will be providing the play-by-play, and Brian Billick. If you ask me, Billick is one of the best analysts in the business and he has been quick to speak well of the Lions in their post-Millen days. As always, you can also stop by the SideLion Report live blog for more takes on the game and a chance to voice your own opinions.
