We're at the midway point of the 2011 NFL season, but we still have a long ways to go until we get to the postseason. Because of that, you should probably keep watching.
Ah, but watch what? Unless you have that fancy satellite package, that's the big question. Some of us have no idea which NFL games are going to be broadcasted in our area, much less which station is carrying them and which announcers will be calling the action.
Luckily, these things aren't a mystery. All you have to do is take a look at the coverage maps below, which come via the506.com. They detail which games are going to be shown where and on what station.
We'll start with CBS. Among other games, they've got the New York Jets at the Buffalo Bills in the early afternoon and the Denver Broncos at the Oakland Raiders in the late afternoon. If you must see Tim Tebow, CBS has your back.
