NFL TV SCHEDULE

2014 NFL TV schedule broadcasting highlights:

• NBC's Sunday Night Football features 19 primetime regular season games, including the NFL kickoff opener on Sept. 4 when the Seahawks host the Packers.

• Every 2013 playoff team will appear on Sunday Night Football, with 16 of NBC's 18 scheduled games involving at least one playoff team from last season. The Broncos, Cowboys, Niners, Packers, Patriots and Seahawks will each appear three times on NBC broadcasts.

• Fox will air 97 regular-season games, with the Panthers appearing the most of any 2013 playoff team (11 times). The Giants and Seahawks make 10 appearances; the Bears, Cowboys, Niners and Packers will appear nine times each, and the Eagles appear eight times.

• Among Fox's most anticipated games: The Niners at Cowboys (Sept. 7), Eagles at Niners (Sept 28), and a mega-showdown between the Niners and Seahawks in Seattle on Dec. 14. Fox's Thanksgiving Day is the Eagles at Cowboys.

• Fox's national telecast of the Lions-Falcons on Oct. 26 will air live at 9:30 a.m. ET, the earliest U.S. kickoff in NFL history. The network will air a second game from London on Nov. 9 when Dallas plays Jacksonville at 1:00 p.m. ET.

• ESPN's Monday Night Football schedule opens with its annual doubleheader: Giants at Lions (7 p.m. ET) and Chargers at Cardinals (10:15 p.m.). The network will air a 17-game primetime schedule with eight teams (Bears, Colts, Eagles, Giants, Jets, Redskins, Saints and Steelers) making two appearances each.

• ESPN's schedule has 12 playoff teams from 2013. Its best regular-season games on paper: Eagles at Colts (Sept. 15) and Broncos at Bengals (Dec. 22).

• CBS has a 106 regular-season game broadcast schedule including a Super Bowl XLVIII rematch between the Broncos and Seahawks in Seattle (Sept. 21) and marquee games such as Broncos at Patriots (Nov. 2), Patriots at Packers (Nov. 30) and Colts at Cowboys (Dec. 21). "I'm as happy with our Sunday afternoon schedule as I have ever been since I took this job 18 years ago," said McManus. "As a practical matter there are more matchups in the NFC that have marquee value so it is really important to us that we keep as many of the top AFC games."

• In addition to its AFC package of games, CBS's schedule features the following NFC games: Carolina at Baltimore (Sept. 28), Chicago at Detroit (Thanksgiving Day) and Washington at San Francisco (Nov. 23). "There has not been an NFC game like Washington-San Francisco on CBS since we lost the NFC to Fox [in 1994]," McManus said. "Conversely, Fox is also getting some cross-over games in the AFC which will help them in markets they have not had access to. What the cross-flex has done is to take a game on Fox or CBS that would not get a lot of exposure because of the regionalization and put it on another network where a really high-quality game can get a lot of exposure."

• The most attractive Thursday Night Football games on paper looks to be the Giants at Redskins (Sept. 25), Saints at Panthers (Oct. 30), and Cowboys at Bears (Dec. 4).

Playoff expansion:

• In case you missed it, which is usually hard given the network's armada of public relations staffers, the NFL playoffs will air on ESPN for the first time. The network has the rights to one of the wild card games (previously held by NBC). ESPN's usual Monday Night Football broadcasters (Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden and Lisa Salters) will call the telecast, which will air in January 2015. The 2015 NFL Pro Bowl (Jan. 25, 2015) also returns to ESPN this season as part of the company's new rights agreement with the league.

• The other postseason news involves NBC. For the first time since acquiring the Sunday Night Football package in 2006, NBC will televise an NFL divisional playoff game this upcoming season and each season thereafter through 2022. The game will alternate every year between an NFC and AFC game. The postseason will be big for NBC as they have the rights to Super Bowl XLIX from Arizona on Feb. 1, 2015.
