Anyone who has seen The Week 10 NFL Sunday Schedule would agree that it is surprising, to say the least. Many might wonder, why? There is a slight twist in the schedule due to the Masters also being aired this weekend. Although it is a bit odd, considering this well known golf tournament is usually performed in April, COVID-19 pushed it back.
CBS have been broadcast partners with the Masters for 64 years now and nothing would change that. This being said, how will CBS be able to air NFL and the Masters? Well, the NFL schedule had to be altered this Sunday because it is the final round for the Masters. Here’s what is different:
1 p.m. ET NFL games on CBS
This is the first time since 1998 where CBS will not be airing a game in the early afternoon time slot. All five early afternoon games that were meant to be aired during this time will now be found on Fox.
More 4 p.m. games than 1 p.m. games
The NFL almost never has more 4 p.m. games on a Sunday than 1 p.m. games apart from Week 17. At 4:05pm all three CBS games will be aired and late games will begin at 4:25pm one Fox. So, six games will be airing in the 4 p.m. window in comparison to the five games in the 1 p.m. window. This is the first time in ten years that there have been more 4 p.m. games than 1 p.m. games during the regular season, besides Week 17.
Jim Nantz and Tony Romo will not be at an NFL game this week
Nantz will be at Augusta National as the lead CBS announcer at the Masters. With that being said, he cannot be two places at once, so no NFL Sunday for him. As for Romo, he has the week off from football.
With all this news being thrown at you, make sure all of your televisions are tuned onto CBS because there will definitely be a lot going on.
Here is a full rundown of the NFL schedule for Week 10:
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15
Washington Redskins at Detroit Lions 1:00 p.m. Fox
Buffalo Bills at Arizona Cardinals 4:05 p.m. CBS
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 16
