Saturday, December 20, 2008 , Posted by Christopher Byrne at 11:55 PM, under , , ,

Athens, GA (Dec 20, 2008) - Wow! Here we are in week 16 of the 2008 NFL season. Fox Sports has the doubleheader this week. But they only have five games because Sunday and Monday Night Football have the two key NFC match-ups. CBS Sports has 7 games and the single-header this week.

With CBS Sports producer Bob Dekas over doing his job as coordinating producer and lead producer for NCAA Basketball coverage, Ken Mack takes over foir him on the Ian Eagle/Solomon Wilcots team.

Over on Fox Sports, the Kenny Albert led team gets true "A-team" status this week, with the Arizona - New England matchup going to 83% of the country. In fact, the nominal "A-Team" (Joe Buck and company) seem to have C-Team status this week, as thier coverage of the Eagles-Ressj=kins game only hitting 22% of the country this week.

Detroit Lions fans will not be able to see if the team's futility will stretch to 0-15, as the game is blacked out in Detroit. This will be the 5th blackout for the Lions in their last six home games.

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