Week 5 of the 2021 NFL season contains some of the best matchups so far. That includes some intriguing Sunday afternoon games that will be broadcast on CBS and Fox.
This week, it will be Fox that gets to show a majority of the games. They will broadcast two games regionally and six of the total games on the slate. CBS will show just one game regionally in the early and late afternoon slates. They are not showing the NFL’s London game between the Jets and Falcons this week; that will be broadcast on NFL Network.
The CBS schedule features six total games, but a majority of the country will see one of these three matchups: Buccaneers vs. Dolphins, Chargers vs. Browns or Raiders vs. Bears.
Fox’s broadcasts this week will largely focus on two games. In the early window, a majority of the country will get a look at the Bengals vs. Packers game. In the late window, they’ll be treated to an NFC East clash and classic rivalry between the Giants and the Cowboys.
The other Fox late game features the lone unbeaten team remaining in the NFL, the Cardinals, as they take on the 49ers. Only a portion of the west coast will see that game live on cable.
Below are the full NFL coverage maps for Week 5, plus a list of major TV markets and the CBS and Fox games that will be presented in each on Sunday.
