Shit, I was hoping to get the game in Reynosa MX but I guess I'll have to miss it since I'll be running illegals into TX. I wonder if I can get it on my I pad via DTV?

why does most of the country get CAR at NYG over ATL at PIT? They're forcing that on the entire west coast.

The NFL has been cramming the NFC east down everyone's throats for years, get used to it.

Just a heads up. For those with DirecTV the Sunday Ticket is free the first week.

I wonder how they decide these things. All the CBS games are at 1:00, so I get that the map is messy, but the eastern part of North Dakota gets Cincy at NE, while the western part gets Dungver at Jax. Other weirdnesses are apparent.

Do the local stations get to pick which game tehy broadcast?

Damnit, Chiefs get screwed again!!

Why on earth is the Kansas City-Chargers game not getting wider coverage?????

.
Who decides what games get shown in my area?
The networks, with some guidance from the NFL. The league sets “primary markets” and “secondary markets” for most teams, and those markets are required to show all road games involving the “local” team. Primary markets are required to air home games too, unless they don’t sell out. The “primary market” is the market in which the team is physically located (i.e. Boston for the Patriots). The “secondary markets” are adjoining markets assigned at the discretion of the league (again using the Patriots example, Providence). Secondary markets are not required to air home games, and if there’s another team nearby, they don’t. Not all markets are designated by one team or another as a secondary market (in fact, most aren’t), usually only the ones closest to the stadium — the ones that would be blacked out if not a sellout. Other markets can air one team’s games more often than not, but that rule isn’t set in stone.
Harrisburg PA is a good example. Because Baltimore is the closest team, the NFL has designated it a Ravens secondary market. However, the stations there have noticed there are more Steelers fans. So the CBS affiliate there, despite having to air Ravens *road* games in case of a Steelers conflict (and enduring the wrath of the local fans every time it happens), they do air the Steelers whenever the Ravens play at *home*.
Outside of these primary and secondary markets, and even in them if the local team isn’t playing, the network is the sole arbiter of what game gets shown where, but usually after taking input from the local affiliates. Affiliates can request a particular game be shown to their market, and the network will (usually) agree unless it runs against the secondary market rules. The CBS affiliate in Orlando in 2005, after several desperate attempts, couldn’t show a Dolphins-Buccaneers game because, for some reason, the NFL said Orlando is a Jaguars market.
As I said earlier, stations in the 32 team markets are not allowed to air a game if the other network has a local team’s home game at the same time. Instead, they have to air one in the other timeslot. The rule does not specifically apply if the local team is on the road, but that’s on the doubleheader network, the singleheader network usually airs a game in the opposite timeslot. This is usually how those Raiders-Lions duds end up on the air in Cleveland.

Looks like Saint Louis doesn't even get the Rams. Can they not even sell out on week #1? Or is there another reason they wouldn't be on?

I am guessing they won't sell out, not sure. Usually Columbia gets stuck with the rams if they are on unless its a blackout.

So, MNF is on ESPN. I have no cable, don't get ESPN. Does that mean I'm screwed? Any legal ways to stream online?

Can't believe that Columbia isn't getting the Lambs.
Bet that gets changed.

Depends on where you live. I believe Channel 9 (ABC) out of KC is also going to carry the game live.

I'm surprised that the Ram's game is not mandatory viewing here in Oklahoma.
