A Look at the National NFL Broadcast Maps for Week 2
This Sunday, we have another full 14-game slate for Week 2.
However, with the Vikings playing on Thursday night, fans of the purple team will have a chance to check out a few other teams across the league and watch football completely stress-free for a day. With the Week 2 slate approaching, here is a look at the NFL broadcast maps for Week 2. The maps are courtesy of 506sports.com.
Week 2 NFL Broadcast Maps
- Red: Kansas City Chiefs at Jacksonville Jaguars
- Blue: Las Vegas Raiders at Buffalo Bills
- Green: Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals
- Yellow: Los Angeles Chargers at Tennessee Titans
For Vikings fans in the Twin Cities area, and pretty much anywhere in the central and southeast portions of the U.S., they will be treated to arguably the game of the weekend as the Kansas City Chiefs travel to Jacksonville and take on the Jaguars.
This is a rematch of last season’s AFC Divisional Round that took place at Arrowhead. Despite losing the game 27-20, Jacksonville was able to keep this game close. Now, they get a chance to make a huge statement against the defending champs at home.
- Red: New York Jets at Dallas Cowboys
- Blue: Washington Commanders at Denver Broncos
For the late afternoon, folks in the Twin Cities will only have one option for a game. The New York Jets head to Dallas to take on the Cowboys, which looked like a great game prior to the season. However, with Aaron Rodgers’ Achilles tear suffered in Week 1, a lot of the luster has been lost from this matchup.
That being said, the Jets defense is still one of the best in the entire league. Perhaps they can keep this game close enough for Zach Wilson, Breece Hall, and Garrett Wilson to make some plays.
- Red: Seattle Seahawks at Detroit Lions
- Blue: Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- Yellow: Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons
- Light Blue: Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans
- Green: New York Giants at Arizona Cardinals (LATE)
- Orange: San Francisco 49ers at Los Angeles Rams (LATE)
With the Vikings off this week, if fans in the Twin Cities tune into FOX at noon, they will have to watch that cheese team taking on the Atlanta Falcons on the road. Both Green Bay and Atlanta enter Week 2 with 1-0 records and are hoping to stay at the top of their respective divisions with a win today.
This game also could give a better gauge as to where Jordan Love is at in terms of his skills at the QB position. Last weekend, he torched a Bears defense that could not establish much of a pass rush against him, but this week, Atlanta should be able to get some pressure with their talented defensive front.
Unfortunately, there are no late FOX games this afternoon for those in the Twin Cities.
