Will you be able to watch that game on TV? If you live in the red areas on the map below you’ll get this game on your local CBS channels, according to 506sports.com:
This week in the broadcast booth, Chiefs Kingdom gets the top crew of CBS broadcasters on the call with Tony Romo, Jim Nantz and Tracy Wolfson. That means that this game is considered the “marquee game” of the week for CBS. As a result, the matchup will have a massive share of the late CBS broadcast map.
The only areas that don’t get the game locally are Nevada and Utah, as well as most of California and Oregon. Parts of Idaho, Washington and Wyoming also won’t get the game. Instead, those areas will see the AFC West matchup between the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers.
It’s not a huge surprise that this matchup is getting top billing in Week 1. The Chiefs have an 8-1 record in Week 1 under Andy Reid. They haven’t faced the Cardinals since 2018, which was a year prior to Kyler Murray’s arrival. It’s a great quarterback matchup with some intriguing storylines, such as Patrick Mahomes squaring off with former mentor and college coach Kliff Kingsbury. Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy will also be facing off against his former college teammate in Cardinals DC Vance Joseph.
