National Broadcast Maps for Week 6 of the NFL Season
Heading into Week 6 of the NFL season, the Minnesota Vikings have gotten off to a pretty start to their season, and now, they have to move forward without their star wide receiver Justin Jefferson.
This weekend, the Vikings will travel to Chicago and take on the Bears at Soldier Field. However, there are still plenty of other matchups to keep an eye on throughout Sunday afternoon. Here is a look at the national broadcast maps for the Week 6 games, per 506sports.com.
- Blue: Seattle Seahawks at Cincinnati Bengals
- Green: Carolina Panthers at Miami Dolphins
- Yellow: Washington Commanders at Atlanta Falcons
- Orange: Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars
- Red: New England Patriots at Las Vegas Raiders (LATE)
While the Vikings take on the Bears, there will be plenty of strong matchups occurring on CBS this Sunday. The Seahawks and Bengals meet in Cincinnati for a game that should be a high-scoring affair while the Colts and Jaguars battle for the AFC South lead in Jacksonville.
For the later slate of games, folks in the Twin Cities can tune into the only late CBS game as the New England Patriots and Las Vegas Raiders battle it out in Sin City.
- Red: San Francisco 49ers at Cleveland Browns
- Blue: Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears
- Green: New Orleans Saints at Houston Texans
Of course, folks in the upper Midwest will be able to tune into the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings game at noon. The two teams are battling to stay out of the basement in the NFC North, with each of them entering Week 6 owning 1-4 records to begin the year.
Outside of that game, though, the San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns get coast-to-coast coverage with a battle between two defensive juggernauts. Then, down by the gulf, the New Orleans Saints and Houston Texans meet as both teams try to keep pace in their respective divisions.
- Red: Philadelphia Eagles at New York Jets
- Blue: Detroit Lions at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- Green: Arizona Cardinals at Los Angeles Rams
At the conclusion of the Vikings game on Sunday, fans in the Twin Cities will be able to watch another NFC North team take the field as the Detroit Lions take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers down in Florida. Both teams lead their divisions, and it should be an entertaining matchup.
Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles travel to the New York Jets in the main game of the late slate while the Arizona Cardinals will face off with the Los Angeles Rams in an NFC West fight.
