CBS: The lone game of the day on CBS will be the Steelers taking on the Chargers at 11 a.m. MT. Ben Roethlisberger is expected to return after missing the past few weeks with a rib and shoulder injury. San Diego has really hit the skids in recent weeks, and coach Norv Turner could be coaching for his job. Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will be in the booth for this one.
FOX Early Game: The state of Arizona will have split coverage at 11 a.m. MT. Those in the Phoenix and Flagstaff areas will get the Bears taking on the Vikings. Those in Tucson and the rest of southern Arizona will get the Cowboys-Bengals game.
FOX Late Game: An NFC West battle will be shown at 2:25 p.m. MT. The struggling Cardinals are set to take on the surging Seahawks in what looks like a game that could be a low-scoring, grind-it-out affair. Chris Myers and Tim Ryan will call the action.
NBC: Two of the league's best offenses meet for Sunday Night Football as Aaron Rodgers and the Packers take on Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson and the slumping Lions. Kickoff for this one is scheduled for 6:20 p.m. MT. Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth are the announcers as usual.
