For out of town fans of the Patriots that don’t have a subscription to the Sunday Ticket, the month of September has been feast or famine. The week one game was broadcast only in New England and western New York, then week two was available to all on the NFL Network. Last week’s game was shown only in Florida and New England (though not in Hartford), now this week the broadcast will once again be readily available as NBC broadcasts the game on Sunday night. Patriot fans have had a variety of announcers and producers to compare and contrast thus far; the Pats have been on a different network every week this year.


New England Patriots at Atlanta Falcons

Line: A week ago this game was a Pick’em; today the Patriots are favored by 1½. Total has gone up from 48 to an average of 49½ points.


Here is a look at what other games will be shown on Sunday afternoon based on preliminary listings; keep in mind that local stations can request a change between now and kickoff. Fox has the doubleheader this week; all of CBS’ games are early with the exception of the Jets at Titans. New England fans get the announcing crew of Kevin Burkhardt and John Lynch back-to-back, Jet fans have to put up with Dan Dierdorf, and most of the country shockingly gets to see Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.
