For those who live outside of Colorado and do not have DirecTV, we present this handy-dandy broadcast map, courtesy of

Those of you who live in the red areas (including Alaska and Hawaii) will receive the Broncos/Patriots game on your local CBS station this weekend.  Kickoff is scheduled for 2:25 p.m. (MT) and we’ll have complete coverage of the game here on the blog, on Facebook, and on Twitter.

For those who do not live in the red, you have several options, which we have listed below for your convenience — 

  1. Panic.  Pros: Releases built up stress and gives you an excuse to throw things.  Cons:  Accomplishes little and does not allow you to watch the game.
  2. Get NFL Sunday Ticket. Pros: Watch every Broncos game every week, no matter where you live. Cons: $$$
  3. Go to a sports bar. Pros: You can watch the game with your friends while enjoying food/refreshments. Cons: Does not include the comforts of home.
  4. Go to the game. Pros:  Experience the game live and in person!  Cons: $$$
  5. Watch the game online. Pros: With NFL Game Rewind, you can watch every game. Cons: NFLGR  does not allow you to watch games live and watching games streamed live online elsewhere is actually illegal.
Are you getting the game on CBS this week?  Let us know in the comments how you watch the games; we’re especially interested to know how our readers across the pond are able to catch the games.

    It’s worth noting that if you’re already a DirecTV customer and want Sunday Ticket, the first hit, er, I mean year, is free, right now. Of course you sign a contract to pay for the following year, I think, so it’s not *really* free, but more like buy one get one.

    Also for the first time in forever, the price I pay for sunday ticket this year is less than it was last year. I think they finally hit the ceiling on it, which is good because damn I was getting uncomfortable with how expensive it was.

    Thanks for putting this up, guys, really helps a fan who is… well, stuck in Raider’s territory (LA).

    Planning to post broadcast maps every Thursday this season (starting this week).

  • chrislynch

    Agreed. I was about to cancel Sunday Ticket this year, but then they reduced the price quite a bit.

    What’s the difference between purple and green?

  • E. Halsey Miles

    Clicking through to the source reveals that purple is Bills @ Niners and green is Titans @ Vikings. Both are basically playing only in local markets.

  • Mike Birtwistle

    No not the BILLS!

    I’m in Toronto for this week’s game. Guess I’ll be watching the Broncs online or on the game pass the next day

    If you need help being able to watch the game, send me an email ( or tweet (@jon_bt).

    6. Move to Denver

  • herc_rock

    Kyle gets screwed again.

  • Mike Birtwistle

    I’m fine, I know plenty of places I can go online but thanks :)

    Unless it’s some unforseen event, it looks like it will be on the air here in western PA. I’ve trusted those 506 maps before and have been let down in the past. Anymore, I just search through the guide and see if it’s going to be on. If it’s not, I stream it.

    Off topic… but has anyone else noticed that the Broncos have received the opening kickoff every game this year? i’m guessing this is because when the Broncos have won the coin toss they elected to receive and when the opposition won they elected to defer.
    I hate getting the open kickoff and unless the Broncos have lost every coin toss this season, I don’t understand the strategy at all.

  • Jon Broncos Heath

    Sounds good.

  • Jon Broncos Heath

    In the case of last week, the Raiders deferred. But I agree, I’d rather take the ball at halftime.

  • DougEngland

    So have the Broncos won any coin flips? And if so, do you know what their thinking is that they are taking the ball instead of deferring?

  • E. Halsey Miles

    In theory, if you have a strong offense and a strong defense, your best bet is to build up a big lead early and then play ball control in the second half to own it. I’m pretty sure that’s how any coach would like to play.

    Though I personally agree that I’d rather control the game in the second half if I can.

  • herc_rock

    They won the Pitt flip.

  • Arvin Davis

    (1) Anyone who is a fan of NFL team, will know all of the above unless he woke up from a coma, which lasted for last 20 years!
    (2) If someone is just getting to start watch NFL, he will have to live in or around Denver to be a Bronco Fan, which case he will get the program locally.
    (3) In a nut shell the post is useless, thanks for nothing!

  • Jon Broncos Heath

    (1) Is that a fact? Fascinating.

    (2) I know a lot of Broncos fans who do not (and never have) lived in Denver. I wonder how they became fans?

    (3) There are a lot of Broncos fans outside of Denver who would like to know if they’ll be getting the game on CBS so they can plan accordingly. Besides that though, yes, this post is pointless.

    You’re welcome for nothing, Arvin.

    I hate Arizona so much…

  • Tim Lynch

    Why pay for something you can freely get on the internet?

  • Tim Lynch

    It’s kinda funny we don’t mention what online savvy folks actually do to watch the game live… ;)

  • Tim Lynch

    try living in northern california…

  • Jim_Jebow

    why are all of these hating douchebags on the site recently?

  • Broncos4ever

    So, I’m a Coloradan living in Charlotte( for now), and I can’t for the life of me figure out why my local CBS affiliate has chosen infomercials instead of the game. Any ideas?
