The 2008 NFL Broadcast Assignments for Week 15

Sunday, December 14, 2008 , Posted by Christopher Byrne at 10:37 AM, under , , ,

Athens, GA (Dec 14, 2008) - We were unable to publish last week's NFL broadcasting assignments because of work schedule conflicts with the SEC Championship game in Atlanta. But now to get back on schedule, it is time to get into the week 15 assignments.

CBS Sports has the doubleheader this week. The Jim Nantz led A-Team will be in Baltimore for the the Steelers - Ravens matchup. Over on Fox Sports, the Tampa Bay - Atlanta game gets the A-Game audience (38% of the country), but the B- Team of Dick Stockton - Brian Baldinger - Laura Okim gets the broadcast. The A-Team goes to 24% of the country with the Minnesota - Arizona game.

Neither network has the last game ever at Texas Stadium, as that honor falls to NBC Sports and John Madden. Probably the ugliest stadium edifice outside of Shea Stadium, it does have the in-booth bathroom. Despite bloggers' laughing at this, they have know idea how "big" this is, as in "important" and not "enormous".

Byes this week: None as bye weeks are done for the 2008 season.

The following are the 2008 NFL Week 15 talent and production assignments. All are subject to change without notice.
