With the return of the NFL comes the weekly NFL coverage map. The NFL schedule has 13 games played on Sunday, with CBS and FOX hosting games in the early and late coverage windows.
NFL Coverage Map for Week 1
This week’s NFL TV and map coverage is provided by 506 Sports. The color codes and the sets they correspond to are listed below. Lists include FOX, CBS and prime time games on NFL Network, NBC and ESPN. These cards are subject to change throughout the week.
CBS Early Game NFL TV Coverage Map
Red: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cincinnati Bengals
Ian Eagle and Charles Davis
Super Bowl runner-up Cincinnati Bengals host divisional rival Pittsburgh Steelers in CBS’ first window this Sunday. As Joe Burrow and the Bengals begin their campaign to prove last year’s success was no fluke, the Steelers will be led by someone who isn’t named Ben Roethlisberger.
Instead, Mitch Trubisky was named QB1 this week and will be looking to lead the Steelers to victory in Week 1. If you don’t have access to CBS, remember you can sign up for Paramount+ and see all the action there.

The NFL coverage map for FOX’s first window shows a lot of red, which means most people, especially in the Midwest and West Coast, will be watching the 49ers take on the Bears. Although the game may not look exciting on paper, the 49ers usher in a new era with second-year QB Trey Lance under center while the Bears get a fresh start with Matt Eberflus as head coach.
Currently, the 49ers are the moneyline favorites, and you can receive a $50 free bet on DraftKings with your first deposit by betting on this game or more on Sundays.
