The 2012 NFL season is off to a fantastic start. Week 3 features numerous matchups between teams expected to be playoff contenders, including a battle between the undefeated Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles. Let's take a look at the TV schedule for the great state of Arizona on Sunday.
CBS Early Game: Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins will take on the Cincinnati Bengals at 10 a.m. PT on CBS. Both teams feature explosive offenses, but their play on the defensive side of the ball needs to improve if they hope to make some noise this season. Kevin Harlan and Solomon Wilcots will serve as the commentators.
CBS Late Game: Due to NFL blackout rules, the TV schedule on CBS is a bit odd. Those in southern Arizona, including Tucson, will see Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos take on the Houston Texans at 1:05 p.m. PT. Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will have the call for that showdown. Folks in the Phoenix, Flagstaff and the surrounding areas will be blacked out.
