    Policy was changed last year. Instead of Fox exclusively doing NFC and Cbs exclusively doing AFC they agreed to coordinate broadcasting in order to allow the best games to shown more often.

    Yeah, I read about that, as well. The interconference policy stayed the same ... NFC team on the road at an AFC team, remains Fox, and AFC team on the road at an NFC team, remains CBS. Not sure why it ever matters.

    I suppose they need to keep all networks as happy as possible to keep the revenue stream flowing at the highest possible rate.

    I believe today's games in the New York metro area are:

    CBS Buffalo vs. Tennessee............Boring
    Fox Seattle vs. Cincinnatt............Boring

    If 506 sports TV maps are correct.

    Have not had a Packers afternoon game in New York metro area yet.

    At least you have good pizza and deli options to serve as a consolation of sorts. ;)

    Packers always play on TV in central Texas as long as Dallas isn't playing in the same time slot.
